Pelosi edits honorary resolution…on Pelosi
Via Politico, The Democratic National Committee wanted to honor Nancy Pelosi Thursday — but its praise wasn’t good enough for the House minority leader. When the DNC’s Resolutions Committee brought up a resolution commemorating Pelosi’s years as speaker of the House, Pelosi’s daughter sought to alter the proposal at her mother’s behest, adding some of the accomplishments that the elder Pelosi felt the committee had overlooked.
“I have some friendly amendments,” said Christine Pelosi, a political strategist, at the committee’s session during the DNC Winter Meeting at the Marriott Wardman Park hotel Thursday afternoon. She is a member of the committee. “You think I’m kidding,” Christine Pelosi added, to surprised laughter from the room. The proposed changes, she indicated, came out of a discussion with her mother.
First, Pelosi wanted to add a mention of her fight against HIV and AIDS, because it was “why she went to Congress.” Then, she wanted to insert a paragraph on her “accomplishments for equality,” mentioning the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act of 2009 and the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell” in December. “Finally, since, as she said, ‘I’m not going anywhere,’ she wanted to add, in the final ‘whereas’ clause, ‘…and will continue the fight for America’s working families,'” Christine Pelosi said.
Yes, working to fight for “America’s working families”. Guess that’s why she dined on gourmet food and alcohol as she travelled over 90,000 miles around the world in just nine months in 2010– all courtesy of the US Airforce. And US taxpayer were billed for $101,000 for her in-flight services over a period of two years. Considering that this woman has a personal wealth of over $21M, you’d think should could have covered the $101,000 (just 0.005% of her wealth) and spared America’s working families for having to pay for her extravagances.
