  •  lol, well lodging, meals & entertainment might (0+ / 0-)

    fall under the category of travel expenses, but they are not travel.  No gas, no airfare, no tolls, no car maintenance, etc.

    And I am aware they pay for their meals outside of state functions, however the only lodging expense I see is for the couple trips to hawaii he takes each year.

    As to entertainment? well, i guess he pays for a couple ball games a year - certainly not for the concerts held at the white house or most other events he attends.  he has a movie theatre in house, as well as a bowling alley.

    So,

    NO travel
    lodging during a couple vacations he takes
    maybe about half his meals each year
    an occasional basketball game
