Air Pelosi: Why the hell are we paying for this?

Doug Ross has been pouring through records obtained by Judicial Watch through Freedom of Information Act requests. What he has discovered is that we the taxpayer have been footing the bill to fly Nancy Pelosi’s children and grandchildren around the world at an astonishing $5,000 to $20,000 per hour. The Pelosi clan, in true Marie Antonie fashion has been reimbursing the Air Force at $120 to $400 per flight, thus sticking the already heavily burdened taxpayer with the rest of the tab. In many cases, Pelosi has requested flights solely for her children, grandchildren and in-laws with no other Congressional member on board.

Who the hell does this elitist nincompoop think she is? As Speaker of the House she should be painfully aware for the $1.4 trillion budget deficit we are currently running and the $1.6 trillion dollar deficit Obama wants to run next year. Yet, here she is wasting millions in taxpayer money so her clan doesn’t have to mix with the little people.

Click over to Doug’s blog and see the ugly details here and here.

Refresh my memory: wasn't Sarah Palin attacked for something like this? It doesn't matter about facts as long as Sarah Palin can be attacked!
At least we know Mrs. Palin forks over money for these things.
Nancy Pelosi? Not so much.

Haven't purchased Star-Kist tuna in a very long time....the Pelosi motto seems to be "why spend any of our millions, when we can spend taxpayer money?" Followed up by my exemptions for Star-Kist and no minimum wage increase for their workers. Truly charming folks.
