WASHINGTON, Feb. 8 /Christian Newswire/ -- Christian Coalition of America condemns the new Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, Democrat from San Francisco, for trying to get luxurious travel paid for by the American taxpayers. Is a first class seat on a commercial jet no longer good enough for Speaker Pelosi? Nancy Pelosi is demanding that the Air Force provide her with a large jet on demand - "Pelosi One" - so she can transport her political cronies, favorite Members of Congress, congressional staffers, friends and relatives back and forth to her district in San Francisco every week.
Roberta Combs, President of the Christian Coalition of America, said: “It is time for Speaker Pelosi to fulfill her campaign promises to the American people and stop the abuse of power in Congress. She said during the campaign that American tax dollars needed to be spent wisely. There is no reason why Speaker Pelosi and her favorite Members of Congress can't take a smaller Air Force plane which makes one stop on her way back to San Francisco, just like most other Americans when they travel.”
However, Speaker Nancy Pelosi is insisting on an Air Force C-32 jumbo jet. It will cost the American taxpayers an astounding $15,000 an hour (and up to 15 Air Force staffers) to service Nancy Pelosi and her political cronies and favorite Members of Congress. The Air Force C-32 plane has 42 leather business-class seats, a fully-enclosed state room for Nancy Pelosi; stewards who serve meals and tend an open bar, and other such luxuries on board. It is time for Speaker Nancy Pelosi to bring such abuse of power to a halt now.
