Pelosi: Sequestration Preventing Me from Visiting Troops on Mother's Day Daniel Halper May 9, 2013 2:26 PM

Nancy Pelosi indicated she would be visiting troops this weekend but for sequestration:

"Every year for the past few years, on Mother's Day, I've gone--I've taken a delegation--into Afghanistan or Iraq, we're alternating now, now Afghanistan--for Mother's Day to say thank you to our moms and, by the way, our grandmothers, who are serving there. Some young grandmothers. But, nonetheless, grandmothers. To also thank all of our troops for what they do to protect America's families. I won't be going this particular weekend because we don't have--you know, under sequestration, we don't have codels."

The troops are probably grateful for that.

I know I would be.

What makes this battle axe think the troops want to see her? And if you want to go visit the troops, then pay for it yourself hag. Doesn’t your husband make a ton of money evading the US minimum wage by putting businesses in Samoa?

Sarah Palin would be 1000 percent more welcome!

Maybe she can visit a Planned Parenthood abortion clinic instead, and cheer up the abortion staff with promises about obamacare creating more jobs for them

PFFFFTTT! BWA HAHAHAHA! The “sequester” is like a chronic disease that politicians are using to get out of anything. It’s like that “one guy” at work who always has an excuse for something.

“Uhh, I’ve gotta leave early to pick up my horse from the shoer.”

“Uhh, I can’t come into work today. I have a *cough* cancer outbreak *cough*.”

This is comical. The sequester is the best thing we’ve seen in this country in a few decades.

This crooked wench has stolen enough money from the taxpayers that she can afford to shell out the money herself. Assuming, of course, she really wants to go.

Yeah, Nancy, and I haven’t taken a trip either because of my mortgage, and my car payment, and my TAXES, and my payroll tax increase, etc.

Cry me a river! The troops are better off not seeing worthless gladhanding politicians.

Bingo.
Probably thinking to herself, “Thank god I don’t have to go. Look, I can blame republicans too!”

has she no shame?

She is worth millions and millions. I am sure as former speaker and her check book, she could get her saggy ass to a base and allowed entry.

What a pile of sh*t she and her ilk are

Afghanistan’s loss is Travis AFB’s gain, Nancy. Can you manage an hour drive from your office in Sacramento? Oh, right — that wouldn’t be on a military plane, and you wouldn’t really have an excuse for blowing a thousand bucks of taxpayer money on booze and snacks.

She is an evil woman who does Satan’s bidding, nothing more and nothing less. Without repentance she will find herself in the fire with the rest of her kind.

she has a published net worth of over $36 million dollars...

(and all sorts of rumors of much more in hidden assets as result of her “public service”)

plus, her staff advises citizens that should not expect to receive any answers to letters or questions unless you’re on her political campaign contributor list

conclusion: she can afford a $200 airline ticket

She is worth about 250 million dollars and the media probably agrees with her
