Pelosi's Jet

I think I know where we would get some money for a new healthcare plan! The Jet pictured above is the USAF C-32, Boeing 757, that MADAME PELOSI uses to go home each week.

Madame Pelosi wasn't happy with the small USAF C-20B, Gulfstream III that comes with the Speaker's job. (You know, the kind of jet corporate executives use.) Oh no. Madame Pelosi was aggravated that this little jet had to stop to refuel. So she ordered a Big Fat 200-seat USAF C-32, Boeing 757 jet that could get her back to California without stopping!

After she works her standard 3 days a week, this gas guzzling jet gets fueled and she flies home to California, cost to the taxpayers of about $60,000, one way! Unfortunately we have to pay to bring her back to start the next week of her grueling 3 day a week job. Cost to us another $60,000.

Folks, that is $480,000 per month and that is an annual cost to the taxpayers of $5,760,000. No wonder she complains about the cost of this 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 this country keeps fueling that jet while doing nothing.

Madame 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 to properly inflate our tires.

Keep in mind the figures above do NOT include cost of plane, maintenance or crew... just fuel! One wonders what her total package cost us?

And she wants to tax our IRA's & 401 K's for health care!
