WHAT? Vice President Joe Biden’s Thanksgiving COST TAXPAYERS OVER $300,000
Vice President Joe Biden decided to go on a little vacation during the Thanksgiving break but his trip was an elite extravaganza which was paid for by you, taxpayers.
Hotel rooms and car service for Vice President Joe Biden’s Thanksgiving trip to Rome and Croatia cost over $300,000, according to recently released government contracts.
The vice president, his wife, Jill, and other relatives are spending the holiday abroad. Biden is first making a stop in Zagreb, Croatia, for meetings, before heading to Italy on Wednesday.
The State Department issued four contracts for hotel rooms in Rome from Nov. 25 to Nov. 29, for a total cost of $208,582.
The government also spent $7,676 for “ambulance support” for Biden’s Rome trip.
For the Croatia leg of the trip, the government issued multiple contracts for car services.
The total tab for hotels and car contracts released for the trip thus far is $307,118.
Glad to see Biden is living so well on our dime.
