Obama India Trip To Cost US Taxpayers Dearly

Amazingly after the President and his cronies had their clocks cleaned in Tuesday’s election because of their out of touch legislation, the upcoming Obama India trip will cost US taxpayers some $200 million per DAY. You got that right, that’s two-hundred-million-dollars-per-day!

President Obama will be taking approximately 3,000 people with him on some 40 aircraft including Air Force One with a total of around 45 vehicles. The trip is scheduled to last 10 days, start in India, wind its way through Asia and end in South Korea. The party (At $200 million a day, it’s a party, not a trip!) will begin at the luxurious Taj Mahal Palace & Tower Hotel as the entourage has rented the entire hotel. No, we’re not just talking about all 570 rooms of the hotel, we’re talking about the entire hotel which includes all restaurants, all bars and all meeting and banquet facilities, everything, lock, stock and barrel.

Given the current state of the US economy, that’s an astounding amount of money and just shows how completely out of touch the President and his band of misfit legislators and cabinet really are. We have nearly 10% unemployment in the US and the President has the audacity to take a 10 day trip to India and Asia and spend some 2 BILLION dollars. Staggering, simply staggering.

Such wasteful spending from our leaders is endemic of the times that we are in. We will never pay down the national debt or balance the budget as long as this mindset exists and you can blame this trip on George W Bush.
