Barack Obama’s presidential library may need $1.5 billion

The Barack Obama Presidential Center in Chicago could require a $1.5 billion endowment, its architects say, three times what was raised for the George W. Bush Presidential Center in Dallas.

Husband-and-wife architectural team Tod Williams and Billie Tsien noted that it will be difficult to raise such a huge sum because Obama scrupulously declined to do much fund-raising while he was still in office.

The Obama Center is due to be so expensive because it will require the construction of both a presidential library and a museum about the lives of Barack and Michelle Obama. And federal requirements now stipulate that former presidents must have larger endowments to pay for annual operating costs at the libraries.

“It won’t be easy,” Williams said. “It’s not just about preserving the past. It’s about the future.”

    “Refugees Will Cost Taxpayers an Estimated $4.1 Billion in FY 2017.”
    OK, so we trash the plans for this worthless library, put the money in the Congressional general fund, and the former POSUS and the UN will only owe us $2.6 billion more in restitution.

  • Nana Monster says:

    What about the $9 TRILLION that’s missing from the Federal Reserve?? You should watch the inquiry video on You Tube…the woman is stammering and can’t answer the questions. No joke…it’s there.

  • kbfallon says:

    Aside from that ridiculous amount of money…who would even go there? It would be testament to the tremendous waste that would describe his whole presidency.

    Tell the Incompetent Bastard to call Soros for his Double wide Library of PINOCCHIOS

  • justinwachin says:

    It is likely to have a large fiction section since his positive accomplishments were all pure fiction.

    Barack Obama will be able to get the money from the same groups of enablers who allowed him to serve two terms in office. Considering that he doubled the nation’s debt during his time in office he may want to allow payday loan sharks to rent space in the library.

  • hdrider says:

    How can two outhouses and a park bench cost 1.5 billion?

  • abc__jps says:

    Let him and his other muslin friends pay for it. Who paid to have all the records about him and his amazon sealed? Let that person pay for it. People I know do not want to fund it. rent a storage unit that should be big enough for anything he did for the Country.

  • Rodney Steward says:
