At least liberals want to use taxpayer money for good things like healthcare, education, the arts, the environment, and meals for the elderly.

What do conservatives waste taxpayer money on? War and corporate greed. And in this era, increasing Trump's wealth.

LOL Well said, Frank. $35,000 to a government entity is like five cents to the rest of us.

Trump's golf addiction -- otherwise known as his work avoidance -- is costing the taxpayer plenty. So far the Secret Service has spent $35,000 on golf cart rentals to protect the President. Wow. Total disregard for the taxpayer!

Secret Service has spent $35,000 on golf cart rentals since inauguration: report | TheHill
And the $35,000 goes back into Little Donnie's businesses.

With "reporting" like this, I don't give them much credibility.

You get a "purchase" order when you PURCHASE (BUY) something, NOT when you RENT something. You get a "rental" receipt.

The again it is CBS.
Wrong, government issues a PO for both goods and services.

LOL, I don't think the left and other Trump haters were interested enough in how much money the Secret Service had to spend on golf carts during Obama's golf games, but then they were too busy fawning on their Obama and giving him the royal pass on whatever activities he engaged in to consider his cost to taxpayers (which they would have justified anyway). Now Trump's golf playing is just another little tidbit for the left to weaponize and lob against the man they want to see destroyed. Like everything else, they're acting petty and childish.

According to the official WH golf game scorekeeper, the Obama played golf 333 times during his 8 yrs in office. You can do the math to see how much THAT cost the taxpayers.

I just heard the Secret Service spent $190,000 protecting his idiot sons Uday and Qusay on their trips across Europe to check in on their properties.

I can't believe it's only been three months, it feels like three years already. Probably because of the extensive press Trump got on the campaign trail.

A lot less actually. A lot of Obama's golfing was done on courses local to him. And he did less. Its like you havent read any of the posts on this. You posted your response thinking HAH! Gonna stick it to the libs! Instead the only thing you have done is show off your ignorance of the topic.

Here's a clue. At this point in his presidency Obama had gone golfing 0 times. Trump? 20 I believe.

About 200 of Obama's 306 games were on military golf courses and most games in commuting distance of Washington. A much lower cost that Trump's weekly ego trips to Florida.

The Obama Golf Counter - I will not rest until...
