DNC refuses to reimburse town for thousands of dollars of overtime costs during Obama visit | Fox News It's sad that this happened in my state and the town 5 minutes south of where I live. Yet again, obama campaigning and costing the tax payers money. They closed down sherwood Island so Obama can land his helicopter there. I proposed to m fiance there. There is a 9/11 memorial there which I always stop by when I am there. Did the president visit that site, NOPE!!
