So the president is going to Las Vegas baby to give a speech for an hour. His Global warming carbon foot print set aside (if you buy that sort of thing) will cost American Taxpayers nearly 1.6 million dollars
President Barack Obama will fly over 9 hours tomorrow, round-trip from Washington, D.C. to Las Vegas, Nevada, just to deliver a speech on immigration, according to the president’s White House schedule. With Air Force One estimated to cost $182,000 per hour in flight, Obama’s trip–that is, only his travel to and from Vegas–will cost taxpayers over $1.6 million.
Obama has no other public events scheduled in Las Vegas but his immigration speech.
“In the morning, the President will depart the White House en route Las Vegas, Nevada. The departure from the South Lawn and the arrival at McCarran International Airport are open press,” the president’s schedule reads.
