Good news if it's true - I certainly hope it is. Even though the Judicial Watch logo is at the bottom lends creditability to this report, some figures don't seem to match Judicial Watches standard for accuracy.
The most glaring statistic I believe is the distance from coast to coast. I believe it has to much further then 2427 miles from Washington DC to California and back. And I would also have to believe she didn't fly commercial on one leg of her journey each time to return home or fly back to work.
Still, hope spring eternal in the human breast that indeed she is now forced to fly commercial, which means she will stay in one spot longer, hopefully California, and the trip will definitely less frequent.
I wonder if the Trump administration's call for cutting costs came into play? Good news for the all suffering taxpayer if it's true.
NANCY PELOSI'S JET IS GONE--
|How is it possible that just a member of Congress could have such a perk??|
USAF TOOK NANCY 'S JET AWAY (verified by Snopes)
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 released documents detailing House Speaker Pelosi's use of United States Air Force aircraft between March 2009 and June 2010.
The data are published in the Judicial Watch Verdict of December 2010, Volume 16, Issue 12. 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 inflight 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 familiar 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 people might lose their jobs", I thought she was unintentionally revealing her ignorance. I'm 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.
If you are an AMERICAN citizen it is YOUR DUTY to PASS THIS ON... Because, you won't see this reported on MSNBC, or ANY Liberal mis-INFORMATION Station.
