Pelosi Spends $18,736 PER MONTH on Office rent

The House Speaker’s district office in the new federal building in San Francisco costs a whopping $18,736 a month — the highest rental paid by any member of the House — or, more precisely, the highest rental paid by taxpayers on behalf of a member of the House. The rental price was reported by Roll Call on Monday.  (Published June 14, 2010| FOXNews.com)

 

I dare say this is half an year’s income for many American Taxpayers – spent in ONE MONTH.
Spending $224,832 a year for an office is absolutely insane. (Does it include utilities?) Add to this, her private, not-stop jet which shuttles her, at OUR expense, from sea to shining sea, literally! Don’t forget the little Copenhagen excursion – The plane filled with friends, admirers, press and the booze, food and – – those niceties only cost us, what? $102,000?

Damn right, she has “Spending Fatique”… She should be EXHAUSTED!
These people are NOT entitled to these PERKS. Go to Washington, do your business and GO HOME. This back and forth, hop-skip-jump, campaigning and ‘spinning’ of rhetoric is TOO DANG EXPENSIVE!

Get realistic people… USE our money wisely, stop throwing it away for your personal comfort. You AREN’T royalty…. Stop acting as if you were!

Illegals and the 14th Amendment

The 14th Ammendment was written to ensure former-slaves and their children were guaranteed citizenship. Obviously, a challenge to that interpretation must be made to the Supreme Court.

Illegals made a choice to enter this country against the laws of the United States of America. They also made a choice when giving birth to a child here. Their next choice should be – deportation with or without their child.

This is a harsh statement, but one I’ll stand behind. Illegals have used these children as pawns in an open attempt to validate their own presence and to establish entitlement for countless programs intended to assist Americans – Not the illegal parents of so-called “Anchor Babies”

Harry Reid’s Campaign Slogan “No one could do more…”

Reid is currently campaigning in his home-state of Nevada for re-election to the Senate.  His current poll numbers are at the lowest, …ever!  According to Rasmussen Reports, Reid’s support has fallen in the narrow range of 33% to 35%.

The senator was first elected to office in 1983, and has since been a “Pork-a-holic”.  His voting record clearly indicates a desire for BIG government.  He’s voted consistently for entitlement programs, extensions and bail-outs.

The citizens of Nevada voted this man into congress to represent THEM, what they got was a lock-step democrat, blinding following the leader.  The cost of this agenda has been high for Nevadans – With an unemployment rate of 13.7%… 140,000+ out of work.  Instead of fighting to help the men and women of his state – He spent the winter shoving ObamaCare down our throats.

He voted for ObamaCare, Bail-Outs  and the outlandish “Stimulus Bill”.  He’s still asking for more money from the American Taxpayer – Now he says we need to bailout the teachers and union pensions.

The senator from Nevada wants amnesty for the some 30 million (likely more) illegals who are currently stealing from the American people…He is ignoring the will of Nevada’s citizens while courting the Latino vote… (legitimate or otherwise). 

In Nevada, specifically:  

~58% of Nevada voters favor repeal of the recently-passed national health care bill;  

~64% of Nevada voters favor passage of an immigration law like Arizona’s in their state, nine points higher than support nationwide. 

Clearly, this senator is not listening to his constituents.  I think you’re right, Mr. Reid :   “No one could do more” damage in 28 years than you have.

PAY-GO or NO-GO

Obama Pleads for $50Billion (byLori Montgomery)

President Obama urged reluctant lawmakers Saturday to quickly approve nearly $50 billion in emergency aid to state and local governments, saying the money is needed to avoid “massive layoffs of teachers, police and firefighters” and to support the still-fragile economic recovery.

Usually this president is requesting not billions but 100s of billions, up to and at times above a trillion dollars each time he opens his mouth. Is this his new tactic… an exaggeration of “nickle & diming” us?

Look at current programs, duplicate programs, commissions and commissions investigating said commissions, waste/fraud/abuse, private jets for pelosi, unquestioned expense accounts for almost everyone remotely affliated with this adminsitration and/or congress…. I bet you’ll find that $50 Billion!

Why don’t we stop private concerts for the WH? Countless vacations for the first family (yes, they MIGHT pay their immediate expenses, but there are endless security costs, secret service, jet fuel, reporters).

Lets look at CUTTING spending before you ask for any more money, Obumbo! The American People are BROKE!

PAY-GO or NO-GO !
