The Cost of Doing Presidential Business in Nevada

The bill for President Barack Obama’s late November visit to Southern Nevada has finally been tallied up. Aside from bilking federal tax payers, his trip to explain his executive overreach on immigration cost a whopping $171,499.36 to Nevada’s state and local police.

Henderson police forked-out $143,685.21 for Obama’s November 21-23 trip. Meanwhile, the Nevada Highway Patrol spent $27,814.15 in salary and overtime for 102 people who provided security during some part of Obama’s latest three-day visit – which included a few rounds of golf.

Don’t expect to get any of that money back either.
