The cost of living in the White House


Being the US President doesn’t necessarily come cheap. In a candid TV interview, former president Barrack Obama said he paid for groceries from toothpaste to toilet paper and dry cleaning from his own pocket. Even the family vacation was not free.
While first families don’t have to pay rent at the White House, they are responsible for personal costs. There was no free lunch or breakfast or dinner for President Barack Obama on any day. It’s a long standing practice.
A president pays for meals for himself, his family and personal guests.
The White House usher’s office prepares a detailed bill and sends it to the president and another to the first lady each month.
It lists all the food and beverages consumed by the first family and personal guests. The president then reimburses the government.
