"Where the hell does she get off thinking she is entitled to a military salute?" This comment from Stan Elsea, Col. USAF ret. A retired Pan Am, ex Delta pilot, who is supplementing his meager "Delta" retirement at the age of 70+ as a simulator instructor in South Florida . He does recurrent training for the Air Force pilots that have to fly Pelosi's Jet, (see below), he told me last week, that the last Pelosi Pilots he had in the Sim told him that they now have to "Salute" her This Jet is the USAF C-32, Boeing 757, that MADAME PELOSI uses. Madame Pelosi wasn't happy with the small jet USAF C-20B, Gulfstream III, that comes with the Speaker's job...no, Madame Pelosi was aggravated that this little jet had to stop to refuel, so she ordered a Big Fat 200-seat USAF C-32, Boeing 757 jet that could get her back to California without stopping! Many, many legislators walked by and grinned with glee as Joe informed everyone that Nancy 's Big Fat Jet costs us, the hard working American tax payers, thousands of gallons of fuel every week. Since she only works 3 days a week, this gas guzzling jet gets fueled and she flies home to California , cost to the taxpayers of about $60,000, one way! As Joe put it, 'Unfortunately we have to pay to bring her back on Monday night.' Cost to us another $60,000. Folks, that is $480,000 per month and that is an annual cost to the taxpayers of $5,760,000. No wonder she complains about the cost of this war...it might cramp her style and she is styling, on my back and yours. I think of the military families in this country doing without and this woman, who heads up the most do-nothing Congress in the history of this country keeps fueling that jet while doing nothing. Madame Pelosi wants you and me to conserve our carbon footprint. She wants us to buy smaller cars and Obama wants us to get a bicycle pump and air up our tires. If you think this is outrageous, forward it to all those on your email list! Keep in mind the figures above do NOT include cost of plane or crew, just fuel! One wonders what her total package cost us? And she wants to tax our IRA's & 401 K's!
