Nancy Pelosi Demands Big Private Jet

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants taxpayers to finance a lavish private jet large enough to ferry her and her entourage – including family members– from coast-to-coast without stopping.

Like all members of Congress, House speakers use commercial flights to travel but Pelosi claims she needs a private U.S. Air Force jet for security reasons, even during personal travel with her family and supporters. After the 2001 terrorist attacks, the House speaker was authorized to use a military jet for security reasons and former Speaker Dennis Hastert of Illinois used a small aircraft with 12 seats and five crew members.

Pelosi is demanding the Pentagon provide her with a fancy jet that includes 42 business class seats, a fully-enclosed state room, an entertainment center, a private bed, a state-of-the-art communications system and a crew of 16. The aircraft must be large enough to make the cross-country trip from Washington D.C. to her San Francisco home without stopping to refuel.

One congressman said Pelosi’s request is “an arrogance of office that just defies common sense” and other House colleagues called it the “flying Lincoln Bedroom” and “Pelosi One.”

The publisher of the world’s top business and financial magazine says Pelosi is a hypocrite because she promised to do everything in her power to achieve energy independence and stop global warming. A carbon-spewing jet to transport her along with her colleagues, family members and hangers on clearly contradicts that.

Neil Boortz points out that “Queen Nancy’s” now infamous jet request doesn’t fit into rolling back the culture of corruption by Democrats.
