“That would amount to a roundtrip cost to taxpayers of about $13,200.”
Who uses a 757 to fly a hundred miles? You’d scarcely get above pattern altitude, for pity sake. Our royalty are completely out of control!
That 13 grand for ONE weekend would provide my wife and me a vacation of a life time, one for which we’ve worked a lifetime but will never see. Just for comparison, I make 19,000 a year from Soc Sec and they call that an “entitlement”. That dimwit Biden would run out of fuel half way home on his second trip. Wouldn’t that be a shame?
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.
