Private Jets for Me, But Not for Thee

Nancy Pelosi thinks it’s extravagant when corporate executive fly in private jets, but it’s “necessary” for members of Congress. She just upgraded the private fleet for Congressional officials by 8 luxury jets to the tune of $550,000,000. Of course that figure just represents the purchase price. Providing the pilots, mechanics, other personnel and services is the responsibility of the Air Force.

Living the good life is so much fun, especially when other people finance it. And why worry about the growing numbers of unemployed and underemployed when you've got trips to make? Let them eat cake.
