Nancy Pelosi spends government shutdown in Hawaii

December 29, 2018

  Whenever the government shuts down our dear leaders love to tell us how painful it is going to be while trying to lay the blame for our pain at the feet of the opposition party. The truth about this government shutdown is that it has been exceptionally pain free for most people, with the possible exception of the non-essential government workers and programs and this is a problem for our politicians who thrive on contrived crises.

  There are still a few partisans out there who are trying to portray this shutdown as the worst thing to happen to our country since we had a country, but the truth is you would be hard-pressed to find somebody on the street who is feeling the effects of less government in a harmful manner.

  Nobody seems to care this time around (personally I feel less government is always better) and apparently Nancy Pelosi has realized this so instead of sticking around and trying to fix the “problem” the soon to be Speaker of the House has decided to spend the shutdown in Hawaii.

Democratic House leader Nancy Pelosi is spending the government shutdown at a luxury resort in Hawaii, the Washington Free Beacon has learned.

Pelosi, who has put blame squarely on President Donald Trump for the current government shutdown, was spotted Thursday vacationing in Hawaii at the Fairmont Orchid resort, where room accommodations range from $899-a-night for a standard room to $4,899-a-night for the presidential suite.

  Talk about throwing away all pretense of caring, any look of impropriety, or even of understanding the plight of the people who are supposedly being hurt by the shutdown, Nancy Pelosi has shown us by her actions what many of us have known for a long time. The elected officials in our government really and truly care about one thing and one thing only and that is keeping their power so they can continue to live their posh lifestyle. They do not really care about the people they are hired to represent, they are only interested in using the people for their own gain.

  Nancy Pelosi has been so successful at this game that she is able to afford a luxury hotel in Hawaii at an estimated $1,000 a night. She has made the political calculation that the shutdown is going to hurt Republicans and the President so why not enjoy a little free time with the added little bonus that her absence will ensure the shutdown lasts a little longer?

    Since we already know no politician worth his/her salt would pay for so much as a bazooka out of their own pocket may we assume, rightly or wrongly, that we taxpayers are in some way, shape or form paying for her adventure in paradise? Of course this is peanuts in comparison to the beast of the midway Mooch allowing us to pay for her, her family and 60 of her closest friends junkets to Japan and Paris.
