Biden Spends Extravagantly on Taxpayer Dime

Vice President Joe Biden knows how to have a good time.  Unfortunately, he’s doing it on your tab at a time when the Obama Administration is trying to scare Americans into believing their messaging on the sequester.  Over at Investor’s Business Daily, Andrew Malcolm points out that Biden and his entourage spent over $1 million in two nights during a trip last month to Europe.

 

While it’s not hard to understand that the cost of a trip overseas would be expensive due to security concerns, but at a time when the White House is using politically-charged, over-the-top rhetoric on the sequester.  Even without the sequester, this sort of spending is wasteful, but it shows that the administration is far out of touch to spend so extravagantly when their rhetoric has been so harsh.
