Obama's Air Force One flight to Chicago and back Monday to cost $236,000 -

All for 2 lousy hours on the ground to come and kiss the asses of the American Medical Association, who are presently opposed to his Obama care Boondoggle, as are millions of Americans already happy with the care they presently have. including this 7 year MS patient who has no complaints, except for the claim that there is no cure for this and other diseases that feed the Pharmaceutical beast billions a year.

I understand the "all president's do this" argument, yet none of them faced the financial problems that this one inherited and MADE 5 TIMES WORSE, nor were there the other methods of cyber communication available to this one, not available even 2 or 3 years ago.

Perhaps Obama and friends in the white house could use a subscription to this service that businesses all around the country are using more often in this brutal economic climate, than jetting across the country for a two hour meeting that easily be done by video, FOR FREE...

Obama's Air Force One flight to Chicago and back Monday to cost $236,000 --

chicagotribune.com: "As President Barack Obama flies Monday to Chicago for a midday speech on health-care reform, the round trip on Air Force One will run about $236,000, according to government estimates of the operating costs for one of the top symbols, and perks, of the presidency.

But that does not include such expenses as Secret Service protection, motorcades and helicopter transports.

After landing at O'Hare International Airport, Obama is scheduled to spend about 2 1/2 hours here. To avoid snarling traffic on the Kennedy Expressway, he likely will be taken from the airport by helicopter to a location near the Hyatt Regency Chicago."

But the bill, White House aides say, is one that is largely unavoidable because of the security and communication needs required by the modern president. Perhaps aware of the costs of Air Force One, the Obama family has used the plane for just one recreational trip to Chicago in his first five months in office.

As expensive as that trip was, it is still roughly half the distance President George W. Bush routinely flew to visit his ranch near Crawford, Texas.

The cost of Air Force One recently made national news after a backup aircraft that sometimes carries the president made a controversial, low-altitude flight over New York City as part of a government photo opportunity, panicking workers and prompting complaints from local officials. That flight cost more than $300,000, according to Air Force estimates. continued
