House Backs Down On Additional Luxury Planes

Not exactly a surprise – After all, how many chauffeured air limos can Nancy Pelosi really use?

Secure air transport for the Speaker seems reasonable. After all, she's 3 rd in the line of succession.

The rest of the lot should be flying commercial. And not going on the Global Warming Snorkeling Tour.*

* Is there anything more worthless than a “Congressional Fact Finding Tour”? Doesn't much seem like it. It's just a chance to go to exotic places and party on the taxpayer's dime. No facts are ever gathered, but there will be cocktails.
