This is Nancy Pelosi's new jet. And the Democrats talk about Palin's dresses??? Queen Pelosi wasn't happy with the small USAF C-20B jet, Gulfstream III, that comes with the Speaker's job...OH NO! Queen Pelosi was aggravated that this little jet had to stop to refuel, so she ordered a 200-seat, USAF C-32, Boeing 757 jet that could get her back to
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich flew commercial most of the time.
This plane costs us, the hard working American taxpayers, literally thousands of dollars in fuel every week. Since she only works three days a week, she flies home to California every Friday and returns every Monday, at a cost to the taxpayers of about $60,000, one way! Taxpayers, that is $480,000 per month and that is an annual cost to us of $5,760,000!!!
No wonder she complains about the cost of this war....it might cramp her style and she is styling on my back and yours. I think of the military families in this country doing without and this woman, who heads up the most do-nothing Congress in the history of our country, keeps fueling that jet while doing nothing.
Queen Pelosi wants you and me to conserve our carbon footprint. She wants us to buy smaller cars and Obama wants us to get a bicycle pump and air up our tires. Who do these people think they are??? Their motto is ... Don't do as I do ... JUST DO AS I SAY!
Keep in mind, the figures above do NOT include the cost of maintenance or crew ... just the fuel!!! One has to wonder what the total package costs us? And on top of that....now she wants to tax our IRA's & 401K's!
When will it be enough?
