From “The Democrat Party You Weren't Invited To” by Donny Bomenabori, 01/23/2018. Source: “Trump Train News.”
“House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi...and her House Democrats were living it up at Acqua al 2, a high-end D.C. restaurant. Nancy Pelosi is "very proud" Democrats shut the government down over illegal immigration and is taking Democrats out tonight to celebrate.
“This isn't a paper napkin kind of place. An image from their website shows them selling wine for $32 a glass, and $7 to taste. Renting a room there for an event runs from $1,600 to $6,000. Pelosi isn't exactly known for her thrift. It is not clear from reports whether Pelosi dipped into her own millions to pay the tab, or whether you paid for it.”
We should express scorn and contempt for politicians like Pelosi and her ilk, not express the implicit wish for parity with mindlessness. This is an interesting and instructive article for two reasons: It shows the lavish celebration and living style of D.C. politicians and bureaucrats. Whether Pelosi paid for the party or used her “office expenses” is irrelevant. In either case, taxpayers paid for it, either through the exorbitant salaries they vote for themselves, or through the office expenses taxpayers finance.
In both cases, taxpayers make creatures like Pelosi millionaires. Remember for the next time.
