President Wastes Over $10,000,000

President Barak Obama contributed much to the government waste on one day, with one trip, for one event. In effort to appeal to the Olympic Selection Committee responsible for determining where the Olympics will be held, President Obama flew to Copenhagen in an attempt to lobby for his native city of Chicago, Illinois. His trip to Copenhagen and back cost a little over $10,000,000 of American’s money to finance. When factoring in the expenses of other individuals sent to lobby for Chicago, such as his spouse, the cost becomes even more excessive.
The bid for Chicago ended in the very first round. Though many Chicagoans showed up with hope and excitement expecting a positive vote in their favor, others in Chicago had stated opposition on various internet sites stating the financial strains and hardships that were apt to fall on the city in a time when the economy was already difficult.
