In a time where our Nation’s Debt is out of control, President Obama is about to greatly add to it on this 10 day Asian Trip. His entourage, consists of about 3000 people. They include the President, his wife and daughters, Secret Service Agents, US Government Officials, some business leaders and journalists.
40 aircraft, including Air Force One, and 6 armored cars are being used for this trip. Entire hotels are being taken over to accommodate the people on the trip. It is estimated it will cost $200 million a day for the 3 days in the Indian city of Mumbai alone.
Is the trip necessary? Or are we again doing the Obama World Tour to see the World at Taxpayer expense!!! Could we have gone with fewer people? 40 aircraft seems to be a little excessive. However, I guess you can never carry enough teleprompters!!! How about cancelling this trip and placing the savings I estimate to be close to $2 Billion toward the deficit. Also, as an alternative, a secure teleconference, the technology exists!!
2012 is coming!!!!!!!!!
