Should Nancy Pelosi still be allowed a private military plane?

Do you think Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, should still get a private airforce plane to go from her CA residence to D.C?

Especially in these difficult economic times, also with Obama cutting 10% of military funding. (This plane is the military's. and big enough to fly coast to coast without re-fueling, sized is compared to a 757, for ONE person!!!)

Can't she fly with her own money to do her job?

  • Absolutely not, and that fact that she thinks she does is exactly why we are in the economic mess that we are in today.

  • Why don't you call your state Senator and ask her/him to do something about.How posting the question in cafemom will help?
    I personally think Speaker of the House is important to have her own plane. She is 3 in lane to be President when something would happened to President &VP

  • after 9/11 she requested a bigger plane so she wouldn't have to stop to refuel. That should tell you something about her character!!! forget the little people, struggling, she can't be bothered to stop for gas...

  • anon 3:51 - I posted this because many people on here don't even know who Nancy Pelosi is, let alone how much money she spends. A little awareness goes a long way. Maybe another CM user reads this and sends one more letter (in addition to mine, thanks for asking).

    As for her importance, and the chain of command, well, there is someone 4th in line too, and so on. Where do we draw the line? give everyone millions in petty cash?
