When the travel expenses get added, For 15 Democratic and 6 Republican Congressmen~the bill comes up to over $1.1 million
Not only did tax payers pay for congress but they also paid for
•Nancy Pelosi’s husband
•James Sensenbrenner’s wife
•Ed Markey’s wife
•Charlie Rangel (Ways and Means??)
•Joe Barton’s daughter
•Jay Inslee’s wife
•Shelley Moore Capito’s husband
•Gabrielle Giffords’ husband
•31 “unnamed Senate staff” on top of dozens of named staffers
Why did the Ways and Means chair need to go to Copenhagen? For that matter, why did most of these Senators and Representatives need to go on the public dime?

Abso-fricken-lutley PATHETIC.... Pelosi's hubby makes MILLIONS each year. He can go buy his own damn ticket and hotel room. This is wasteful spending during a recession. How many liberals will give their elected officials a free pass in the name of climate change? Not one elected official [R] or [D] will get a free pass from me.
