Heartache: Pelosi Says She Can’t Visit Troops for Mother’s Day Because of Obama Sequester

Maybe she should have skipped a few dozen cross-country trips on the taxpayer dime and saved up.

“Every year for the past few years, on Mother’s Day, I’ve gone–I’ve taken a delegation–into Afghanistan or Iraq, we’re alternating now, now Afghanistan–for Mother’s Day to say thank you to our moms and, by the way, our grandmothers, who are serving there. Some young grandmothers. But, nonetheless, grandmothers. To also thank all of our troops for what they do to protect America’s families. I won’t be going this particular weekend because we don’t have–you know, under sequestration, we don’t have codels.”

Don’t worry, Stretch, the troops will gladly forgive your absence. It’s a win-win. We save a few bucks and our armed forces are deprived of her company.

    Translation: they probably cut off the free name brand booze that she, her friends and family used to get.

    I have no problem with Sen. Pelosi going to Afghanistan provided that she stays there. I am willing to chip in a few bucks to get her there.

    i’m sorry to hear that her vast family wealth is less vast due to current fiscal policy
