$2.9 Million are you kidding me?
Check it out:
Mouths on Capitol Hill were agape Friday as MailOnline told congressional staffers that President Barack Obama’s recent one-night stay in Brussels cost taxpayers more than $2.9 million – and that’s just for hotel space and rental vehicles.
The amount covered Obama’s March 25-26 stay in Belgium’s capital, plus two weeks of work by his advance team before the president participated in a NATO and EU summit and a tour of the Flanders Field Cemetery.
The Weekly Standard first reported on a single requisition for lodging in Brussels at a hotel called ‘The Hotel,’ costing an estimated $1.52 million.
MailOnline has found two additional requisitions, covering more than $396,000 at a Crowne Plaza hotel and $1.05 million in expenses for ‘vehicle rentals.’
