Bush/Cheney Campaign Trips Will Cost Taxpayers $7M

Those political jaunts cost. Guess who pays?

Rep. Waxman releases a new minority staff report that shows that taxpayers pay over 95% of the cost of flights by the President and Vice President for campaign-related events.

Using figures from 2002, the last time the President and Vice President traveled on behalf of others in a nonpresidential election cycle, the report projects that taxpayers will spend over $7 million in 2006 on presidential and vice presidential political flights.
