We have often noted that the most vocal eco-happy warriors are hypocrites. People like Prince Charles, Sting, all the politicians who fly to conventions in single jets and are chauffeured in limousines to their conferences which admonish you to ride a bicycle, Michael Moore, Harry Reid...all of them.Joe Biden has often made a big $#%^ing deal out of his riding a train to DC during his terms in the Senate. Well, it looks like any carbon he saved by doing that was canceled out in his first weekend as Vice-President.
Some Secret Service agents are now squealing on his flagrant abuse of taxpayer dollars by flying nearly every weekend to play golf; operating Air Force Two costs $22,000 an hour to operate.
Like the Obamas' use of Air Force One to jet their daughter and her friends to Mexico for a vacation, the ruling elite are oblivious to the costs of fuel and agents sent to protect them.
Newsmax has the story. This has been going on since Biden was put into office; the cost for Biden's golf trips is estimated to be upwards of $3 million or more.
Every Friday, Biden takes a helicopter designated as Marine Two from the vice president’s residence to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland and then hops on Air Force Two to fly back to his home in Delaware. At the end of the weekend, he returns on Air Force Two, usually a Boeing C-32.[SNIP]
The cost of flying Air Force Two is $22,000 an hour, so each half-hour trip to or from Delaware costs about $10,000. Each golf game costs taxpayers $20,000. At that rate, the annual cost to taxpayers of Biden’s weekend trips is well over $1 million.
In addition, the Secret Service rents more than 20 condominiums in the Wilmington, Del. area for agents who must accompany Biden when he returns to his home state.But hypocrisy is nothing new to this White House; they bully the public to eat veggies and then eat cake themselves.
They tell you to ride a bike while they take a plane.
They say everyone needs to sacrifice and then they take separate jets around the world for vacations every month or so.
They say that lobbyists are not welcome in the White House, yet meet them across the street at a different building, not to mention that communists (yes, communists) regularly traffic straight to the Oval Office.
