"Air Force One ... belongs to President and Mrs. Obama, but Air Force One also belongs to the American taxpayer," he said. Coble said he would welcome a resolution from the Obamas to use "prudence, discipline, and last but certainly not least, fiscal austerity" when deciding how they fly around the country.
"America's taxpayers will be appreciative," he said.
Coble also took a swipe at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for her controversial remark last week on the U.S. Consulate attack in Benghazi, Libya. In response to a question from Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) about the deadly assault, Clinton said, "What difference at this point does it make?"
"I submit ... that the survivors of the four Americans who were murdered at that attack would welcome any information, any and all information, surrounding that infamous invasion," Coble said.
