    A Dem would never resign
    they are entitled

    So the left can claim another scalp point out an inpropriety while of course completely ignoring their own
    hypocrites

    Since you insist on telling tales......

    Let's make it worth the time.

    NIXON'S administrations had no scandals.

    There, now the two lies are equal.

    Democrats being crooks is expected and nobody ever punishes them. The Republicans expect more from their representatives and remove them.
    I want all of the crooks removed, that's our tax dollars being wasted for their own personal use.

    Swinging from a tree wouldn't be too harsh for punishment as far as I'm concerned.

    I'm sick of all of these thieves. And some people wonder why they all come out of Washington filthy rich.

    Jokes were made about how boring Obama;s administration was, just no juicy gossip to talk about
    No Drama Obama was his handle.

    The media was in bed with Obama for the full eight years. They wouldn't report his scandals even when the right laid the facts and details right under their noses. That's why they have no credibility now.

    Obama was pretty rotten. Might end up needing pardoned, for all his spying on US citizens.

    He signed for 786 billion for infrastructure repairs, but gave it to his cronies instead. Then kept it in the budget three straight years, plus interest, thru the CR. He spent more in debt than all Prezes before him combined. Tripled the deficit before goung back to Bush's deficit, and claiming he decreased the deficit. He's as crooked as Hillary.

    Actually it was one sum divided into a number of years,
    more than 3 years if I recall. And he sent much of it to the States to pay for their shortfalls like paying for law enforcement and teachers
    Like you guys always say let the States decide

    The CR added it up 3 times, which is why they used Continuing, instead of Budget.

    Most went to either the Calf Pension, or SEIU, which funneled a lot back to his reelection campaign.

    If It Cost So Much, Why Did He ( Tom Price ) Do It?
    According to HHS, Price took private planes when commercial flights weren't available.
    But it's worth noting that his predecessors in the Obama administration, Kathleen Sebelius and Sylvia Mathews Burwell, only took commercial flights while they were in office.

    If commercial flights weren't available and Price needed to travel, what else should he have done.....called Uber for a cross country trip?

    I'm not defending him because it sounds like he needs to be hanged for his shenanigans.

    Reports like this one, saying Pelosi routinely flies about in her own 757-size jet, have been floating around for almost two years. The claims were revived when Democrats complained that CEOs of the Big Three U.S. automakers had used their corporate jets to come to Washington to seek billions in federal aid. But the rumors are incorrect. Spokespeople for Pelosi and Andrews Air Force Base say that the speaker has used the big Air Force jet once, but she normally uses a much smaller plane, the same one used by the previous speaker of the House, Republican Dennis Hastert.


    Snow, Feb. 7, 2007: After September 11th, the Department of Defense – with the consent of the White House – agreed that the Speaker of the House should have military transport. And so what is going on is that the Department of Defense is going through its rules and regulations and having conversations with the Speaker about it. So Speaker Hastert had access to military aircraft and Speaker Pelosi will, too.

    She may have settled on using that plane, but there were videos of her demanding a 737. That's why it made the news.

    However, the e-mails posted by Judicial Watch don’t refute our story — in fact, they back up what we’ve said. ( FactCheck.org )


    In fact, the vast majority of the e-mails are not about shuttles to and from Pelosi’s home district at all, but about congressional delegations (CODELs) to other states and countries – trips that are ostensibly for fact-finding purposes, for the most part, and generally take place during congressional recesses. Pelosi’s office oversees transportation for these trips for all members of the House, not just for the speaker herself. For instance, the quote: "This is not good news, and we will have some very disappointed folks, as well as a very upset Speaker," which Judicial Watch highlights, refers to the DOD’s difficulties finding appropriate planes for every House delegation over the 2007 Fourth of July recess. Pelosi did not head any of the delegations that were seeking aircraft at that time. Judicial Watch has pulled out quotes that make these e-mails sound like unusual or even outrageous requests by the speaker. In fact, they show staffers juggling limited military resources for all House members, not Pelosi asking for special treatment.

    Pelosi travel abuse? Case not proved.

    Exactly. That's my stance also. NONE of these politicians should have their airfare home paid for by our tax dollars. I'd be willing to have their trips paid for once in a while, like when they first go out on recess, then their trip back to Washington, but that's it.
    But of course, then the thieves would be "on recess" more than they already are, which is about every month.
