Joe Bidens Costly Trip

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden’s costly trip to London and Paris last month just got more expensive. A newly uncovered receipt from the February trip shows the vice president’s office spent $321,665 to a limousine company in London, in addition to the previously reported hotel tabs of $459,338 for one night’s stay in the city and and $585,000 for a night in Paris. State department officials say Biden’s staff members, who are not allowed to drive themselves, used the limo company to get around the city. Biden’s limousine was flown in from the U.S.  In that vein, Twitter quickly lit up in a fury about the outrageous price tag, with many picking up on the irony that his expensive trip cam just three weeks before the much-reviled sequester budget measure went into effect.
