Congress Wasted $1.1 Mil In Tax Dollars To Send Spouses, Children, Photographers To Copenhagen

HotAir has even more on this fiasco.  I mean, Charlie Rangel went?  What the hell for?

I also want answers from the 6 Republicans that when to this eco-farce.

Don’t worry about any of this. As of tomorrow night we’ll be entering the new era of fiscal responsibility or something by lopping off 37 cents in federal spending now that Obama will pretend to be a fiscal conservative or populist after a year of bankrupting us.

Thanks to a recently filed Congressional expense reports there’s new light shed on the Copenhagen Climate Summit in Denmark and how much it cost taxpayers.
CBS News Investigative correspondent Sharyl Attkisson reports official filings and our own investigation show at least 106 people from the House and Senate attended – spouses, a doctor, a protocol expert and even a photographer.
For 15 Democratic and 6 Republican Congressmen, food and rooms for two nights cost $4,406 tax dollars each. That’s $2,200 a day – more than most Americans spend on their monthly mortgage payment.

    I’ve noticed that a large percentage of the comments on this, and everything else for that matter, are of the “It’s the Democrat’s fault – It’s the Republican’s fault” variety. Heads up people! The label doesn’t matter. They are all robbing us blind and running us into the ground, and we’re too busy fussing over red or blue or left or right or how many Republicans screwed up compared to how many Democrats screwed up. It’s all a red herring. While we bitch moan and assign blame to abstract ideas like “Republicans” or “Democrats” real people are doing real things that sell us down the river. They spent a little over a mill on a BS trip to Denmark. Yes, it’s wrong, but it’s a drop in the bucket, and that’s what you all think we should be upset about? Sigh.
    Rant over.

    The point is not the money so much as the idea behind it. Yes, it was only $1.1 mil and in the grand scheme of thing, like Obama’s $1.4 trillion deficit, its nothing, but think about what it was. Obama and these retards (Dem and Rep) went there to tell the world that we were willing to destroy our economy just to prevent this global warming myth.

    Cap-and-trade is nothing other than a huge tax. Global warming has zero valid science to back it up.

    It was $1.1 million spend by fools in the hope that they could send trillions more of US money to other nations.
