CORPORATE JETS? YOU WON'T BELIEVE NANCY PELOSI'S AIR FORCE JET FOR HER WEEKLY COMMUTES TO SAN FRANCISCO
The Jet is a USAF Boeing 757.
*And they STILL want to talk about Sarah's clothing??
Hello? Is anyone listening to this?
Madame Pelosi wasn't happy with the small private jet that came with the Speaker's job...no, Madame Pelosi was aggravated that her little jet had to stop to refuel, so she ordered a Big Fat 757-200 seat jet that could get her back to California without stopping!
Many, many legislators walked by and grinned with glee as Joe informed everyone what Nancy's Big Fat Jet costs us, the hard working American Taxpayers, for the thousands of gallons of fuel every week.
Since she only works 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!
As Joe put it, 'Unfortunately we have to pay to bring her back on Monday Night.' Cost to us is another $60,000. Folks, that is $480,000per month and that is an annual cost to the taxpayers 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 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 and air up our tires.
These people are nuts.
If you think this is outrageous, forward it to all those on your email list!
Keep in mind the figures above doNOTinclude cost of plane or crew, just fuel!
One wonders what her total package cost us? And she wants to tax OUR Ira's & 401K's.....
