Vice President Biden's $583K Shangri-la Hotel Bill in Singapore


Vice President Joe Biden's $585,000 hotel bill for a Paris visit early in 2013 focused a lot of attention on the issue of the high cost of VIP travel. Even as Biden is currently on a swing through the Far East, the State Department has posted a $583,000 contract with the Shangri-la Hotel in Singapore for the vice president's three-day/two-night stay this past July, his most recent Far East visit. Though the online Justification and Approval document is somewhat poor quality, it indicates a need for a hotel "to host a VIP visit of over 250 guests at during the principal's visit," the "principal" in this case being the vice president:
That's $1000.00 + dollars per night. Can you afford that while on tour or vacation?

"WE" say this is something the POTUS should do to show respect. When you consider how far 'we' are in debt and how much this trip will cost should 'we'?
The "Triage" he takes with him is ridiculous. You won't find a list of just how many that is not counting all the equipment that goes along with them.
IMPI send him and 7 secret service guards with him, if he gets killed who cares, one plane, no back up, still cost plenty to a country with no money.
"WE" can't afford all of governments luxuries!!!
