When it comes to stealing taxpayers money, we have two very close contestants this week.
It seems the good representative of Texas likes to travel…and she wanted to travel the world to visit all the communists countries—at our expense:
According to the House Committee on the Judiciary — Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Tex., “traveled around the world on an official trip in February that cost American taxpayers $23,646. led by Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., — traveled first to Seoul and Hanoi in South Korea and then to Cambodia—But as Cooper noted Monday, Lee didn’t travel with CODEL. While other members of the delegation traveled together for the Feb. 16-22 trip, Lee took separate commercial flights to the region, and then left early on another commercial fight through Frankfurt Germany to explore ways they could “assist the region on child welfare reform and international adoptions.” Lee routinely upgrades her airline seats to first class.
Sheila evidently is a queen of righteous discontent if she isn’t treated like royalty, or Obama’s ugly step-sister. Not only does she insists she is chauffeured exactly ONE block from work to her apartment, (200 paces) she’s been known to throw hussy fits on planes if they don’t have the food she wants. There was a report that one time she got really angry when she found the menu didn’t include a seafood special she wanted.
“Don’t you know who I am? I’m Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee. Where is my seafood meal? I know it was ordered!”
Nobody Knows how many couples in Texas want to adopt babies from Vietnam, but you would think that it would be low on the totem pole of Texas concerns.
Yes, We have wasted a lot of money on Sheila, who flies first class everywhere. But let’s just say, for her last trip, it costs the taxpayers a rounded, $50,000 (Come on…You know they jiggle the figures)
And then there’s Massachusetts. To let everyone know they are decent and loving people, evidently Massachusetts likes to make terrorists so comfortable the killers of the Boston Marathon lead a very cushy life at our expense.
The Tsarnaev family, including the suspected terrorists and their parents, benefited from more than $100,000 in taxpayer-funded assistance — a bonanza ranging from cash and food stamps to Section 8 housing from 2002 to 2012, the Herald has learned. This has since expanded its probe to include a full history of the benefits received by the entire Tsarnaev family.
So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect award this week?
You know, I have to say…Massachusetts. Liberalism is a disease, and people are dead and lives changed forever because of their stupidity.
What do you expect from a state who hatched Ted Kennedy?
But…oh you KNOW I really wanted Sheila to win and my only consolation is:
