U.S. Air Force Took Away Nancy Pelosi's Jet!

U.S. Air Force Took Away Nancy Pelosi's Jet!

 JANUARY 31, 2013

What a waste of Tax Payer's money!

This was LONG Overdue

 

USAF TOOK NANCY ‘S JET AWAY

The real reason that Nancy Pelosi is considering retiring is that they took her Jet away.
Ah, poor baby!

As a result of a Judicial Watch filing under the Freedom of Information Act, the USAF releaseddocuments detailing House Speaker use of United States Air Force aircraft between March 2009 and June 2010.

Here are the main highlights revealed by the USAF. Keep in mind that all the data below relate to United States Air Force aircraft used by one woman over a sixteen month period.Several of these flights included Ms. Pelosi's guests, such as grown children, grandchildren, various in-laws, friends and hangers-on.

Over 95% of the trips were between the west coast and Washington DC , for what you might call a commute between home and the office. READ it and WEEP!!

•·         Total trips: 85 over a 68 week period, or 1.25 average trips per week.

•·         Total mileage: 206,264 miles, or 2,427 average miles per trip.

•·         Total flying time: 428.6 hours, or an average of 5 hours per trip.

•·         Cost to the taxpayers: $2,100,744, or $27,715 per trip, or $1,285,162 per year!

•·         Cost of in flight food and alcohol: $101,429; $1,193 per trip; $62,051 per year.

On one junket to Baghdad, according to the Air Force report, she had the aircraft bar stocked with Johnny Walker Red Scotch, Grey Goose Vodka, E&J
Brandy, Bailey's Irish Cream, Maker's Mark Whiskey, Courvoisier Cognac, Bacardi Rum, Jim Beam Whiskey, Beefeater Gin, Dewar's Scotch, Bombay Sapphire 
Gin, Jack Daniels Whiskey,Corona Beer and several varieties of wine.

This was obviously a very important "gubment bidness" trip.Evidence generally speaks for itself, and in Ms. Pelosi's case it speaks the language of abuse and (evidently) a serious familial drinking problem, for in a single year she and her spawn drank an amount in excess of the net income of the average employed American!

When she said, "... If the stimulus doesn't pass, five hundred million (the US only has about 300 million including children) people might lose their jobs...",  thought she was unintentionally revealing her ignorance. Now more inclined to think she was pickled.

Even though she can no longer abuse the USAF, she can either fly on her broom, or fly Southwest Airlines, where bags fly free.Strange we haven't seen this story covered on MSNBC?

Hastert used a smaller jet since he lived closer. She needed a larger one so she could get home without refueling. Boehner, not Bonner (were you trying to be funny or ugly there?) announced in 2010 when he became speaker that he would continue to fly commercial, and he has.

Quoting Annsf:

This is a nothing story.  She had a plane because she was 3rdin line to the presidency since she was speaker.  badBonner should have it now.  Your ugliness is showing.

Since she hasn't been the speaker since 2010 why the hell did she still have the flights?

Snopes and fact check are from 2008 and not valid as it is now 2013. Multiple sources report her jet was taken away as of this last week.

Exactly! More abuse of our hard-earned money.
