    John Boehner to fly commercial as speaker

    That won't cost 28,000 one way as Pelosi's jet cost and will save the tax payers a bundle IMO. I know there was someone enquiring how the new speaker would fly but I can't locate the thread.

    No more "Air Pelosi".

    If he has been doing that for the last 20 years, as he says, then why announce it?? Nothing has changed. What does he want, a pat on the back????

    No, it will cost $3,000. a day for each person in his flight, but the nation another trillion dollars to special interests and corporations, banks, etc.:lol:

    Cons never see the big picture. They worry about Pelosi flying, yet don't mind paying for Israel jets to go on scenic tours in the gulf.

    Bottom line is John just isn't worth a Pelosi shit, so the government figures he is a risk we can afford to take. Now J. Dennis Hastert was worth quite a lot, so he flew like Nancy does.

    It's a pie in the face to Pelosi....
    Pelosi should be ordered to pay back every dime of taxpayer money she spent for travel.
