Nothing but the best for Empress Pelosi when she was Speaker of the House.
And so what? You were paying for it; and you’re just a pissant peasant proletariat taxpayer.
“Every time the speaker boards her personal military aircraft it costs the taxpayers approximately $28,000 a flight. The leader of the people’s House should travel just like everyone else.” [...]
Documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by Judicial Watch, which investigates and prosecutes government corruption, show Pelosi incurred expenses of some $2.1 million for her use of Air Force jets for travel over a recent two-year period. [...]
Judicial Watch said the 2,000 pages of documentation it obtained showed Pelosi’s military travel cost the U.S. Air Force $2,100,744.59 over two years – including $101,429.14 for in-flight expenses, including food and alcohol.
Incoming House Speaker Rep. John Boehner underscores that Empress Pelosi’s military flights were unnecessary, wasteful and extravagant. Not to mention incredibly hypocritical – coming from a woman who constantly polluted the atmosphere with her own hot air self-righteously talking about how “green” she and the Democrats were.
Unlike Nancy Pelosi, John Boehner values the taxpayers’ money. Unlike Pelosi, Boehner doesn’t think he’s entitled to spectacular largess.
“Over the last 20 years, I have flown back and forth to my district on commercial aircraft. And I’m going to continue to do that.”
New Republican House Majority Leader Boehner also said:
“I told my constituents, in a primary in 1990, that if they thought my job was to come to Washington and rob the public treasury on their behalf, they were voting for the wrong guy. I said it, I mean it, that’s who I am, and I’ve never taken [an earmark].”
Versus San Fran Nan, who took a $30 million slice of cheese to save some stupid mouse with stimulus money. And who asked for another $106 million more in earmarks from next year’s federal budget. Just for a couple of recent examples among many.
Pretty damn refreshing.
Buh-bye, Nancy. When you clean your desk out, please take that great big giant sanctimonious gavel out along with your heavily plasticized face.
