Obama to collect money in Michigan
Tickets to the Henry Ford Museum event begin at $250; to attend a dinner and receive a photo, the cost is $5,000. Those interested in taking part in a “VIP rope line” must cough up $1,000.
The second event will take place at the home of Denise Ilitch and Jim Scalici in Bingham Farms. Tickets are $40,000 per person for a cocktail reception, formal photo and dinner, or $10,000 per person for a dinner and candid photo.
$40,000 per person? That’s $80,000 for a couple.
The $40,000 cost is higher than Michigan’s per capita income of $36,533 in 2011, according to the Commerce Department’sBureau of Economic Analysis.
But this is to insure that Teh One can continue to live in the White House, golf, and travel in the luxury to which he’s become accustomed.
