So Obama qualified for hundreds of millions in benefits.

Portland, OR

The Obamas paid the maximum in taxes for their bracket, at the 18.4% rate. In addition, the President has donated from five to six percent of his salary to the national treasury each year in office. The Obama's charitable contributions, which included all of his $1.4 million Nobel Prize, are about 25% of their income.

* In eight years, the Bushes received one, and a half million for vacations.
* In one year, the Royal family of England spent one million.
* In four years, the Obama's spent two billion dollars with no paid taxes on this.

Amazing how some view this as charitable.
