Obama flights come at excessive cost

President Obama is flying to Las Vegas (a 9 hour roundtrip flight) to give a speech on immigration. The Air Force estimates a cost of $182,000 per hour to fly Air Force One. Thus, the cost to taxpayers is in excess of $1.6 million! This does not include ancillary costs while in Las Vegas. Is this spending our money wisely?
