As tens of millions of American families struggle to pay the rent and put food on the table, President Obama and about 3000 of his closest friends and security personnel will spend an estimated $200 million dollars per day when he visits Mumbai, India for four days from November 6th through November 9th.
Though the total won’t exactly reach $1 Billion dollars for his four day stay, it comes pretty close, and with government being government, we can always add a good 20% to 30% to estimates they put forth.
With the U.S. already in debt to the tune of roughly $200 Trillion, the President figures, “Hey, what’s another billion?!”
If President Obama’s four day vacation was a country, it would rank 170th on the list of countries by GDP.
We literally have Americans living in tents, and the President can somehow justify spending the GDP of some small nations for a foreign public relations visit.
This is what happens when someone who has never run a business or held a private sector job in his life for more than a few months becomes the President of the largest corporation in the world.
Really, it has now gotten beyond ridiculous.
