Pelosi's New Digs!!

In San Francisco last autumn, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi relocated her district office to a bigger suite.  Allegedly, the security is enhanced, it is more accessible to "public transportation", and, oh yes, it is "greener".  Well, let's talk about the ways in which it's "greener" - that is, just how much long-green this office costs taxpayers!

Ladies and gentlemen, have the smelling salts handy and be sitting down.  The monthly rent for this office is - (drum roll, please)

$18,736 per MONTH!

That's right!  Not "per year"  - per MONTH!  Now let's put this into a bit of perspective here; what she expects taxpayers to pay every month is more than two times my annual mortgage payments.  Boys and girls, can we say "ka-chinnng"? 

Go further down that article, and notice two things.  First, her rent is almost double that of the next expensive office rents of House Members.  Now notice something else - all those cited with pricey office rents are (wait for this!) DEMOCRATS!  Well, whaddya know?   Aren't they the party of the "little guy"?  Well sure!  They want to keep us "little" so that they can pay for these opulent offices with our hard-earned tax dollars!

November 2010 cannot come soon enough!
