What sequester? Biden flying 100 miles to his house every weekend...

Still no tours for children wanting to visit White House...

Via White House Dossier:
Vice President Biden has been flying home to Wilmington, Delaware most weekends at enormous expense to taxpayers, even though he has an exclusive government-provided residence in Washington.

Biden himself acknowledged the flights during recent remarks to the National Association of Attorneys General, noting that the sequester would force him to temporarily alter his expensive habit and use the train instead.

Not fit for the weekends

According to reports, Biden generally uses Air Force Two to get to Wilmington.
The cost of flying Air Force Two, a military version of the Boeing 757-200, amounts to about $8,800 per hour, according to the most recent federal data.

Biden appears to have lied about the sequester forcing him back on Amtrak.
