A Return to Pelosi – What it Means for You
Paul Ryan had done the United States the biggest favor of his political career by finally resigning.
However, it looks like the case of… be careful what you wish for. As Nancy Pelosi is set to return to the limelight.
We know how Nancy Pelosi will perform as Speaker of the House because she’s held the role before, from 2007 until the Tea Party wiped out the Democrats in the 2010 midterms.
She’s also telegraphed what she plans to do to America if she becomes Speaker: Launch 100 separate frivolous investigations of the Trump administration, impeach the president, erase the tax cuts, throw the borders open wide to hordes of welfare caravans and expand Obamacare.
It’s a tall order since the Democrats didn’t also seize control of the Senate, and President Trump will also wield veto power over Pelosi’s agenda for as long as he can remain in office.
Aside from that, we know that the House Speaker’s office will once again become a source of graft and taxpayer rip-offs with Pelosi in charge.
During Pelosi’s last months as Speaker of the House in 2010, watchdog groups uncovered the fact that Pelosi was using the US Air Force as her personal taxi service.
Internal Air Force documents obtained through Freedom of Information Act requests revealed that Speaker Pelosi had cost the Air Force $2.1 million in flights and military escorts in a single year.
That included $101,429.14 in expenses for booze and snacks on the flights. Pelosi regularly used the Air Force to ferry her from Joint Base Andrews – just across the river from Washington, DC, to her home district in San Francisco. Pelosi’s husband, daughter, granddaughters and son-in-law also received flights from the Air Force with Nancy.
In addition, Pelosi frequently requested a military escort whenever she was forced to fly commercial with the little people of America.
In one internal Air Force document released, officers were complaining that Pelosi booked Air Force planes to take her home every single weekend, “just in case” she decided to travel. She frequently booked Air Force trips and then canceled at the last minute, effectively keeping one branch of the US armed forces at her personal beck and call.
That’s the personal style of “leadership” that Nancy Pelosi used to benefit herself when she was Speaker of the House. We have no doubt she will return to that style of corruption immediately if she becomes House Speaker again.
There are other possibilities for our next Speaker of the House, but our money is on a return to Pelosi.
We’re hoping that there are a few important issues like infrastructure where republicans and democrats can find common ground. I would suggest against holding your breathe though.
