Democrats in House Want 8 New Jets 10 August, 2009

The love some of you may have for Congressperson may be priceless, but their 8 private jets on our nation’s charge account costs $550,000,000.00 before interest. The administration requested 4 for them and that was called and raised. Do you have a feeling that this Congress likes to gamble with how far they push the voters?

Senators are not from safe districts and are getting a little worried. After all if you live by stoking envy and class resentment, you will die by hypocrisy.

“The whole thing kind of makes me sick to my stomach,” said Sen. Claire McCaskill (D., Mo.) in an interview Sunday. “It is evidence that some of the cynicism about Washington is well placed — that people get out of touch and they spend money like it’s Monopoly money.”

Here’s the best part. The Administration requested $220 million to buy 4 jets. The House gave them $550 million to buy 8 jets. Now, Washington math must be different from my math, because when I double $220 million I only get $440 million. Whose pocket do you think the extra $110 million is going to end up lining.

I haven’t seen one news story yet that has noticed the funny math. You want to know why our country is going ot hgell in a handbasket? Because the reporters are just as dumb as the politicians.
