I guess the question I should have asked was, for how many trips made up the $101,000.00. I am always against Government waste. But, I do know a law was passed that the Speaker of the House was to have a military plane to travel in after 9/11. Dennis Hastert used the military plane practically every weekend which was his right. Seeing you know so much about flight costs by politicians, how much did it cost the taxpayer when GWB flew out to the ship that was only 30 miles from shore? I will wait for your answer to see if you really are against excessive spending.
Funny how you didn't mention that there were a number of Republicans on the Demark Trip. I agree that our congressmen and our past President costing us taxpayers over $700,000 to fly out to the USS Abraham Lincoln which was only 30 miles offshore for a photo-op. By the way, what is your occupation? I would like to know where you are coming from. Or, are you ashamed of what your occupationh is?
