As VP, Biden Has Been Flying To Delaware on the Weekends
White House Dossier ^ | 3/23/13 | Keith Koffler

Posted on 03/24/2013 9:45:42 AM PDT by Nachum

Vice President Biden has been flying home to Wilmington, Delaware most weekends at enormous expense to taxpayers, even though he has an exclusive government-provided residence in Washington.

Biden himself acknowledged the flights during recent remarks to the National Association of Attorneys General, noting that the sequester would force him to temporarily alter his expensive habit and use the train instead.

According to reports, Biden generally uses Air Force Two to get to Wilmington.

The cost of flying Air Force Two, a military version of the Boeing 757-200, amounts to about $8,800 per hour, according to the most recent federal data.

It is about a 2 1/2 hour drive from Dee Cee to Wilmington.

He could do that if he was concerned about the taxpayer’s money.

He really could.

Where’s the Delaware and national press corps on this?

The train? The one that loses taxpayer money on each and every passenger?

These people have a strange sense of entitlements. You have worked for that social security money, you earned it! But to them, it is an “entitlement.” Yet they literally waste billions on spending for themselves because they are “entitled” to. Sauropod expresses it well. I too despise these people.

And yet another fine example of the left handing ammo to the right, and the right will do NOTHING with it.

I swear that the left is testing the boundries of what will be un-noticed. This is a perfect example. The media should be un in arms about this type of stoopid spending.

If you left out of DC on a Friday at 3PM...it’d take around 80 minutes to get to his house there.

It takes a bit over that for the commuters around here to get home from work on a good day. The average joe has to work until 5 pm. He shouldn't be better than the working stiffs who foot his bills.

I use to drive every weekend from Reston VA to Dewey beach DE.

SOB doesn't even have to do the driving.

Just sit in the back seat and take a nap.
