MSNBC | Boehner Demands Obama Reimburse Taxpayers for Campaign Rallies

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) demanded on Thursday that President Obama’s re-election campaign reimburse the Treasury for the cost of a two-day trip to three swing states.

At his weekly press conference on Capitol Hill, the GOP speaker accused the president of essentially campaigning during his trip this week, which took him to three college campuses in three swing states to talk, ostensibly, about student loan interest rates.

“This week the president traveled across the country on the taxpayer’s dime at a cost of $179,000 an hour insisting that Congress fix a problem that we already working on. Frankly I think this is beneath the dignity of the White House,” Boehner said.
