I was wondering how much of my tax dollars goes to cover the cost of the president holding these rallies that he seems so fond of. It is my understanding that during his first two years in office he has held about 40 of these things.

Short of making the president feel good about himself, do they serve another function? Is there an oversight committee of the Senate or House that approves these expenditures and, if so, how do they justify these expenditures?

You would think that either the senators or House members would be able to tell me how many tax dollars are spent on these rallies. None of them seem to know. Since they have oversight responsibility for the administrative branch of government, you would think they would know.
