ABSTRACT
The author deals with the implications of the decision by U.S. President Barack Obama to take a vacation with his family in Martha's Vineyard amid the problems being faced by the country. He states that the Congress approved bailouts for states, housing and highway projects. He suggests that the decision by Obama to rent the vineyard for 50,000 dollars a week does not resemble fiscal responsibility. He commends Representative Patrick McHenry for criticizing the health care reform initiative of the president.
