    Upper_Cdn said"The documentation for this contract is not as detailed as the London one, so the cost per room is not available. However, just like his London hotel, the Hotel Intercontinental Paris Le Grand is a five star hotel. Again, security concerns prevent these type of contracts from being open to bidding, but if the government was able to do some comparison shopping, the Hotel Intercontinental has a special offer, "Find a lower price elsewhere and your first night is free." The Vice President stayed in Paris for one night."

    All politicians both democratic and republican run up expensive tabs at hotels, bars, and restaurants. The taxpayers end up having to foot the bill unfortunately. Go figure.

    I'd be interested to see Cheney's hotel bills (when he was in office). At the end of the day, it is not 'Joe Biden's' bill, it's the Vice President's bill, with all the additional costs that entails.
