Douchebag of the Week

You are a douchebag!Democrats: Spending More, Getting Less.That’s an apt slogan for this Congress. The Democrats took control promising reform and the only thing that’s changed is the name on the door. In the House, this session saw the largest number of roll call votes in the history of the United Sates, but the Democrats failed to meet even one of their major legislative priorities.

And now we find out that Nancy Pelosi is spending our money on all manner of ridiculousness. It earns her the Douchebag of the Week.

Apparently she’s acquired quite a green thumb since becoming Speaker: she dropped $16,000 on flowers alone this year. No telling how many poor kids that money could have gone to insure, but we’re positive it could have gone to much better use. She’s almost doubled her budget from what Hastert spent last year.

Pelosi also racked up $60,000 in travel, which doesn’t include her official CoDels. By contrast, Hastert spent $1700. So little time, so many places to be, it seems.

Remember, these are the Democrats who want to enact the largest tax increase in American history to pay for all these “priorities”. Flowers, hobnobbing around the world, make-up artists. Please. It’s enough to make you want to vote for Ron Paul.

Congrats, Nancy. You earned the Douchebag of the Week.

NOTE: Next week we’ll be choosing our Douchebag of the Year. Comment here and give us your suggestions.
