So let me understand…..Travel

So let me understand……… We have heard that everyone should have “shared sacrifice” as we all handle these budget cuts from Sequester. Let us see how the White house is doing with shared sacrifice. President Obama just announced he plans to increase his oversea trips this year. His plane costs for his travel team (Secret Service, Cabinet Members, and Aides) runs over $182,000 per hour. That does not include housing and feeding his travel group.

Meanwhile as we spent the first 2-3 months preparing for sequester, our Vice President Joe Biden, has taken his travel team to London for an overnighter in January and in February, an overnighter to Paris. Cost to the taxpayer is $455,388.65 for the London trip. The Paris trip cost the taxpayers $585,000.50.

With the advent of Skype, (both secured and unsecured), Teleconferences and other video conferencing methods of almost instant communication, can we afford to spend the money instead of using it domestically to help Americans?

“Shared Sacrifice”?????

You Decide!!!!!!!
