Mumbai:  The US would be spending a whopping $200 million (Rs. 900 crore approx) per day on President Barack Obama’s visit to the city.

“The huge amount of around $200 million would be spent on security, stay and other aspects of the Presidential visit,” a top official of the Maharashtra Government privy to the arrangements for the high-profile visit said.

About 3,000 people including Secret Service agents, US government officials and journalists would accompany the President. Several officials from the White House and US security agencies are already here for the past one week with helicopters, a ship and high-end security instruments.

    I quit volunteering at the Food Bank as it was only feeding undeserving blacks….when asked why I was leaving (taking my time and $$$$’s with me) I told them they should talk to obama about the enormous dollars being wasted by the white house and try to get him to send some of them to them. this is a disgrace but not a surprise!

    This is what is known as a deficit neutral excursion. Kinda like the health-care act, only filed under travel. (yuk, yuk) Today is November 2nd., Buh, bye, DemocRATs.

    How much of our tax monies did he spend to campagin for his policies and people. It costs $75,000 and hour to fly his big plane. He went to Ohio 12 times let alone how many to the other states. He must have a girl friend on the plane. He spends more time there than at home.

    How bad does the corruption need to get before We The People rise up and storm Washington? The ruling class needs a heavy does of tar and feathers.

    Well I see his Hope & Change is working out well for him and his homies. This narcissistic community organizing Marxist Chicago thug is livin’ large on our dime. Spreading the wealth around among his cronies so to speak. He knows he’s a one term President so he’s milking the gig, and the taxpayers, for all it’s worth.

    unreal, we have people starving, losing their homes, unemployment benefits are running out, jobs are being lost by the thousands.

    and there is no justification for this , absolutely none.

    that means this trip will easily cost a billion dollars.

    what a disgrace, but typical, just typical.

    hope Mrs. Obama can bring back some pointers from meeting with sex workers, as we would not want our taxpayer money to be comepletely wasted.

    Someone needs to cut up his government credit card and revoke his passport. All this travel and vacationing is bankrupting us.

      This little spoiled punk needs to return the credit cards, the check book, and the keys to the damn car !

      He’s nothing more than a rich-kid having it “his way” as his parents protest – Well obama – here’s your new reality. You might fly around for a few more weeks, – but we’re goona GROUND YOUR A$$ when you get home !
