Obama’s hotel bill for one night in Brussels: $1.5M
By LU Staff on April 4, 2014 at 12:25 pm 

By now it’s no secret that the already-exorbitant cost of operating Air Force One jumped 27% under the Obama administration, to $228,288 per hour. But how much does it cost the president to stay overnight in a hotel in Brussels? How does $1,522,646.36 sound?

The Weekly Standard’s Jeryl Bier did some digging and came up with this document:

Bier explains that the cost also includes two weeks for an advance team to scout out the premises. But if you divide the amount on the government document by 14, you still end up with a nightly rate of $108,760, which seems a tad high.

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams
