Wants parties to pay political expenses


I find it outrageous that the citizens must pay a good portion of the cost for Obama to make Democratic fund-raising trips. There was a media report that it costs $1.1 million for Air Force One to fly from Washington, D.C., to Seattle. The Secret Service costs and local police are on top of this. Plus what ever unmentioned items can be charged to this citizen's account.

This must be changed. Democratic and Republican fund-raising expenses, all expenses must be paid by the parties hence forth.
