Speaking of spending money wisely.
Thanks to a recently filed Congressional expense reports there’s new light shed on the Copenhagen Climate Summit in Denmark and how much it cost taxpayers. [money tree]
We’ll give you a hint: It cost a sh*t load of money.
Fifty-nine House and Senate staff flew commercial during the Copenhagen rush. They paid government rates — $5-10,000 each — totaling $408,064. Add three military jets — $168,351 just for flight time — and the bill tops $1.1 million dollars — not including all the Obama administration officials who attended: well over 60.
With a U.S. delegation topping 165 people, we’re quite positive a lot was accomplished.
