Taxpayer Funded Vacations for Family

After reading a blog by Left Coast Rebel regarding money spent by Nancy Pelosi on travel for friends and family, I was hopping mad.  To say the least.

I have written a letter to my Congressmen demanding that a bill be passed into law which makes this illegal.
I demand that a bill be immediately proposed to prohibit federal funds from being used to pay expenses for friends and family travelling with elected officials. There is no company which pays for airfare, food and entertainment for friends and family who accompany an employee on a business trip and the federal government should be no different.

It is unconscionable and offensive for money that the people work tirelessly for to be used to fund another's vacation. If friends and family wish to accompany an employee (and don't forget you're all our employees) on a business trip that is fine, but it should be at their own cost and not the cost of the taxpayers.

I want this made as illegal as it is unethical and I want it done now. As our federal debt explodes and you vote to raise the debt ceiling to accommodate your recklessness, it is abhorrent that money we do not have is spent on travel expenses for anybody not directly performing the people's business.

I encourage everyone to call, write or e-mail our elected officials and let them know how you feel about this travesty.  It probably won't change anything, but doing nothing definitely won't. 

We're mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore. 


  1. Nancy deserves all the perks she demands. She's better than you. Wake up.

  2. She may have a more impressive job, but I have way bigger boobs, and they're real unlike most parts of her. For that alone I should get more benefits than she does.

  3. Performance anxiety is a psychological issue that many
    men will suffer from on occasion; however,
    it becomes a problem when an overwhelming sense of anxiety is
    associated with doing the deed, thus reducing both performance and pleasure.
    Some men are so concerned about making their partner see fireworks that they essentially psych themselves
    out, which is a sure-fire way for the evening
    to become a disappointing dud. The big problem with
    performance anxiety is that it feeds upon itself and can set the stage for a negative self-fulfilling prophecy.
