    Yeah.....but we can pick up the tab for good OLE Joe, huh? Sequester Cuts.....Remember Joe?

    Biden's One-Night Paris Hotel Tab: $585,000.50



    The documentation for this contract is not as detailed as the London one, so the cost per room is not available. However, just like his London hotel, the Hotel Intercontinental Paris Le Grand is a five star hotel. Again, security concerns prevent these type of contracts from being open to bidding, but if the government was able to do some comparison shopping, the Hotel Intercontinental has a special offer, "Find a lower price elsewhere and your first night is free." The Vice President stayed in Paris for one night.

I think that 200 million could have helped keep some of the Towers open. Especially the One in Ogden Utah situated around Military Flights.

    But that's Okay.....Obama can keep on taking the hit. Each and everytime he throws money overseas. People are hurting here and even they won't go for the lies much longer while watching Team Obama give money to other Countries.
    Actually it was Congress that gave the money to the Syrain Refugees. Congress controls the spending.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    While true that Congress approves the Spending.....but not all that came out of the SOS was approved by Congress. Especially those that were pushed thru NFP's and NGO's. Moreover.....Congress didn't just approve the 200 million that Obama announced yesterday to Jordan, yet.

    Oh and I'm sure this is just coincidence...

    Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., also voiced concern that "75 percent of the towers the Obama administration is closing are located in Republican congressional districts."

    Why would you think that? The white house public tours were cancelled yet the visitor office director is now paid (and very well, thank you) to do absolutely nothing (except to advise Obama, of course).

    Yep. Ignoring those pesky "pay as you go rules" by declaring everything to be a crisis or emergency.

    Other than political gain (or loss) why are traffic control towers, WH tours, and the like, being closed and the free cell phone program, welfare in all its forms, and political salaries and perks left in place?

    Does anyone really believe that we would not be better off with the closing of the 50 or so czar offices and the politicians staying in DC till the job is done?

    Which is one example that may not be representative of the whole.

    And just because there are no White House tours open to the public does not mean that there are no visitors to the White House.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    Just like Clinton did.....as she was the one to release the funds that Congress held up for Egypt. If you recall I had that up somewheres. Moreover with the Saudi and Qatarans funding the Syria Rebels. With Hundreds of Millions in weapons. Let their azzes pay for the Syrian Refugees. Considering it's their Sunni people they are concerned about.

    But I don't find it surprising that most of these Private Airports are in Republican States. Although.....they are hitting 3 of them around Chicago. So you see how the Chrry picking is played out. As Gary Airport was the alternative to the bigger one and gave NW Indiana a closer Airport to use.

    True. I hear Obama may actually visit it again soon.
