Government Limos Up 73% in Two Years of Obama

Under Obamunism, our otherwise crippled economy is booming for those who provide limousine services to fat cat bureaucrats:

Limousines, the very symbol of wealth and excess, are usually the domain of corporate executives and the rich. But the number of limos owned by Uncle Sam increased by 73 percent during the first two years of the Obama administration, according to an analysis of records by iWatch News.

Most of the increase was recorded in Hillary Clinton’s State Department.

It could be noted here that the State Department was long ago corrupted by moonbattery into a nefarious institution that works actively to thwart American interests abroad.

According to General Services Administration data , the number of limousines in the federal fleet increased from 238 in fiscal 2008, the last year of the George W. Bush administration, to 412 in 2010.

The limos aren’t cheap:

The department said it defines a limo as a vehicle that carries a VIP or “other protectee,” rather than by the type of car, but said most of its limos are Cadillac DTSs, which cost the taxpayer more than $60,000 for a 2011 base model and support the additional weight [and cost] of armoring. The department said it also purchased a limited number of 7-Series BMWs for ambassadors in countries where vehicles are right-hand drive.

At least now we know that someone other than the crony capitalist dealmakers at Government Electric still buys vehicles from the taxpayer-financed UAW make-work program formerly known as General Motors.
