Nancy Pelosi: 15 Months, 85 "Free" Trips On Military Jets!

It's like the best "Frequent Flyer/Friends and Family Plan" you can ever imagine! You, your kids, your grand-kids, even your in-laws, fly for free on an American military jet anywhere you want to go! With unlimited amenities, including bottomless bottles of booze!

How do you get such perks? Be the Speaker of the House. Be unscrupulous and amoral. Be a Democrat (redundant?). And laugh, laugh like the Joker and clink your champagne glasses as you toast the common American taxpayer who's footing the bill for your life of luxury as they slowly starve to death in an economy you decimated!

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and members of her family and staff took 85 tax-paid trips on military aircraft between March 2, 2009, and June 7, 2010, according to new documents uncovered by Judicial Watch

Judicial Watch obtained the documents as a result of a January 25, 2009, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Previous documents received by the non-profit watchdog group revealed that Pelosi's travel "cost the United States Air Force $2,100,744.59 over a two-year period — $101,429.14 of which was for in-flight expenses, including food and alcohol," according to Judicial Watch.

"For example, purchases for one Pelosi-led congressional delegation traveling from Washington, DC, through Tel Aviv, Israel to Baghdad, Iraq May 15-20, 2008 included: Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey’s Irish Crème, Maker’s Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewar’s scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey, Corona beer and several bottles of wine."

Keep laughing, Nancy. All the way to a well-deserved oblivion....
