We all know that President Obama is on a very important trip to Asia. This trip is so important that it includes 3000 people, 9 aircraft, 42 naval vessels (more than most nations own), 35 limousines, and a host of other items. The cost of this 10 day trip comes to 2 billion dollars (that’s $2,000,000,000). Now the White House will not reveal any of the costs and some news sources have said it is not really costing near that much. Some say only 34 Navy ships are involved, not 42. One of the two aircraft carriers was in the area already so you can’t count it. Others have said 2 billion it is not that bad and compared it to an 11 day trip Bill Clinton took in 1998 to Africa that cost only 40 million. (Inflation comes in handy when you want it to). Here is another thought. Since President Obama took office he has spent a lot more than that. From his inauguration to October 19th this administration has added over 3 Trillion dollars to our national debt (according to the US Treasury statistics on Oct 19). That is 658 days so the spending comes to 4.6 billion dollars day. So if our president is only spending 200 million per day on his trip he would be saving us a lot of money. Instead of a headline of: President blows 2 billion dollars to see the Taj Mahal. Continues to fleece taxpayers to pay for luxury vacation lifestyle The headline should read: Presidents cuts 44 billion in wasteful spending Saves the US economy from further disaster George Bush is responsible for. Yea, I know, the 4.6 billion per day Obama is flushing down the toilet here in the states continues even while he is gone. Oh well, it was a good idea for a minute.
