“Let them eat sh*t.” That might be the motto of Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi’s latest stunt.
Reminiscent of her defiant march around the Capitol following the passage of Obamacare, wielding a giant gavel, the former speaker of the House decided that the Democrat-driven shutdown of the federal government wouldn’t be complete without a celebration.
So she invited the Democratic members of the House of Representatives out to dinner at the pricey Italian restaurant Aqua al 2 (where antipasti run as high as $24, main courses to $36).
The U.S. military meantime will not be receiving pay, but — hey! — mangia, right?
Needless to say, the news was not well received by the families of our troops, especially those stationed overseas, who reacted on Twitter.
Hi @NancyPelosi Can my @USArmy daughter go? For some reason she’s not getting a paycheck and illegals get more support from dems then she does…personally I think its idiotic to hold up military paychecks… The play with high explosives… pic.twitter.com/rIzpJWKkbo

My son in law (1 tour in Iraq, 1 tour in Afghanistan & an Army Recruiter) and daughter wonder how they’ll buy groceries when they won’t get paid…oh, and their rent is due Feb 1st. But let them eat cake, right Nancy?
