Congressman to Pelosi: Give up personal jet and LEAD BY EXAMPLE!

Oops…no good deed goes unpunished! Poor Nancy Pelosi, in an attempt to save the American taxpayer the expense of first class political junkets, has inadvertantly put her own PRIVATE MILITARY JET at risk. Some mean ole Republican Congressman, Rep. Bill Posey, actually expects her to…did he say…LEAD BY EXAMPLE! Poor Nancy might have to fly COACH. Oh the horror of it all.

Congressman to Pelosi: Give up personal jet: “Rep. Bill Posey, R-Fla., announced today he applauded Pelosi’s new House rules-change that bans all members of Congress from flying first class on the taxpayer’s dime.
And to help the speaker enforce the new rules, Posey said in an announcement, he is offering an amendment to the FY 2011 Defense Authorization bill which requires the speaker to lead by example and also fly coach. The move, he said, would spare taxpayers the $28,000 it costs per flight for her personal military aircraft when she travels back and forth to her home in San Francisco.”
