New Bedford’s Air Tower Sequestered, But Joe Biden Travels in Style?

Am I missing something here? The FAA chooses New Bedford’s air traffic control tower to shut down soon because of the sequester, but Vice President Joe Biden can rack up a bill of $585,000 for a recent one-night Paris hotel stay?

Pardon-moi, but the New Bedford tower closes while Washington spends 1.5 million subsidizing cell phones and spends 20 million dollars on those orange stimulus signs?

Sorry folks, this sequester picking and choosing what gets cut doesn’t pass the stink test. At least they spared Martha’s Vinyard’s air tower for the president’s next visit.
