While the rest of us eat cake and brace for the oh so horrible sequester cuts, Joe Biden is jet setting around the globe spending half a million dollars per night in taxpayer money….to sleep. The Weekly Standard has the scoop:

As it turns out, Vice President Joe Biden’s London stay in February was not the most expensive part of his trip. A government document released on February 14, 2013 shows that the contract for the Hotel Intercontinental Paris Le Grand came in at $585,000.50.

Meanwhile, let’s not forget President Obama has no plans to cut back on his lavish vacations and travel, either.
