For some reason the house speaker has exclusive use of an Air Force 767. This is a very big jet. Last year Nancy Pelosi used it 38 times to go home to California. Talk about a waste of money. But what about the carbon footprint from a cap and trader, it is pure hypocrisy. That jet burns up $60000 in fuel per trip :that is 2.28 million dollars last year. How many tax payers does it take just to pay her fuel bill?
There is good news though. Now the keys to the jet have been given to new speaker Boehner. He is going to fly commercial and try to get rid of the jet.It may be political but at least he will quit the waste of fuel. Nancy did not.
