Looks like Nancy and her den of inequity have been flying high on taxpayer dimes for a while now.

One wild escapade cost the Air Force around $200,000 in 2015 !!! 🤣

That one was round-trip to Italy and Ukraine and back and included lavish dining and most likely some wild partying.

Time to nail these hypocrites and expose their BS.

And what in the world was she doing in Ukraine anyway ? Hmmm 😎



NANCY PELOSI CHARGED THE AIR FORCE NEARLY $200K TO FLY HER FAMILY AND OTHER LAWMAKERS TO ITALY AND UKRAINE

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s congressional delegation (CODEL) to Belgium, Egypt and Afghanistan garnered extra attention after President Donald Trump banned her from using military aircraft, but the trip would not have been the first time she used Air Force money to travel the world.

Pelosi’s trip to Italy and Ukraine from July 30 to Aug. 6, 2015, cost the Air Force $184,587.81, according to documents released Saturday under a 2015 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit by Judicial Watch. Her delegation was made up of nine other members of Congress, including Democratic Reps. Anna Eshoo of California and Marcia Fudge of Ohio.

Four family members, including Pelosi’s husband Paul Pelosi, were on the trip. The delegation dined at restaurants including James Beard American Restaurant in Milan, where a five-course meal cost up to $190, according to Fine Dining Lovers. The lawmakers also toured the Vatican and met up with Italian dignitaries, including President Sergio Mattarella and then-Prime Minister Matteo Renzi, according to their itinerary.


"Nancy like wild vodka party"

That's why she uses the military to fly around instead of commercial. Family flies free military route.

From now on any politician wanting to use the USAF as their personal travel company gets shoved in a 500 gal drop tank and slung under the wing or center line hard point of a Viper or Mudhen. If they are willing to pay for first class then you get a chute and a swift kick in the ass off the tail end of a Mighty Mouse or Herkey Bird.

The kick in the ass is complimentary.

So what's your point? Many of these elected officials Democrats, Republicans and our current President have lavishly spent taxpayer's money. It's being reported and they're being caught all the time! Are you conveniently ignoring the amount of money wasted on private security expenses for the first lady when she refused to reside in the White House? Or the vacationing trip expenses by our current and past presidents?

It's rather convenient that our elected officials can shut-down the government and still get their paychecks! Maybe there should be a referendum on the ballot asking the "voters" if our elected officials should get paid if they can't do their job and negotiate in good faith on behalf of American citizens.

All this political finger pointing is rather ridiculous when actually both political parties do it! The system allows for spending abuse and when they get caught, it just fades away. Imagine if any hard working American got caught by their employer wasting company money. They would be fired, forced to pay it back or brought up on charges! These self-serving elected officials are not accountable to the same laws and justice system we all have to abide by.

Why do Americans even defend these elected officials and turn a blind-eye to their wrongs? All we're doing is allowing a corrupt and unaccountable political system to go unchecked.

Did the First Lady REFUSE to live in the White House or did she just delay it so her very young child could finish his school year?

Don't bother answering because I know that you know what the truth is.

Leave your HuffPo talking points there, that garbage doesn't fly around here.

Well now you all been crying that 5.7 billion dollars in just a drop in the bucket of our total annual budget... I believe somebody did some math and concluded it was about $54 dollars of the average Americans annual pay...

So 5.7 billion = 54 dollars... so 200,000 is like a penny? big whoop right???

How much do trumps trips to mara lagoon cost the US taxpayer???

The first lady flew down there last week... you gonna cry and post about that fella???

You guys talk so much praise about trump and his campaign promise to build a wall yes? remember he also said on the campaign trail that he would be to busy to play golf... did he not? How much has that lie cost the US taxpayer?

Sorry to burst your bubble, but I don't even read the Huntington Post. I've attacked both political sides for lavish spending. Unfortunately, because the current president was mentioned, it struck a cord with you! In your eyes Trump probably can do no wrong. It doesn't take a genius to figure Trump's base rules the political forum, lol.

Facts just don't count here. I'm sure you'll also ignore all the recorded lies and contradictions of the current POTUS, lol. Calling out one word "refuse" to try to make an excuse for her creating excessive government spending is laughable. When these elected officials take office, they work for us! Just because she's married to Trump, doesn't give her the right to use taxpayer's money just because she wants to satisfy her son's wishes. Would a private employer allow a wife to use company expenses for her personal use because she refused to relocate with her husband in the city where he just found work? Hell, no! I can add to a long list of Trump's lavish vacationing expenses, including excessive spending by his son, son-in-law and daughter, but I'm sure you'll find some way to justify it.

I'm not here to justify Obama's vacation expenditures because he sure didn't take a back seat to over-spending, but are you going to deny this comparison fact?...


As of October 14, 2017 Taxpayer dollars spend on vacations, golf and personal security while not at the White house for Barack, Michelle, Malia and Sasha $98,000,000.00 over 8 years or $1,020,833.33 per month

Taxpayer dollars spend on vacations, golf and personal security while not at the White house for Donald, Melania and Barron $147,000,000.00 over 9 months or $16,333,333.33 per month


SNOPES POLITICAL FACT CHECK

Denying Ignorance means denying facts... feel free to do your own comparisons. If you're truly honest with yourself, you may not like what you see, lol.
