While troops go without pay, Pelosi ‘treats’ House Dems to taxpayer-funded dinner party

While troops go without pay, Pelosi ‘treats’ House Dems to taxpayer-funded dinner party
Five friends cheering on good news.

“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.
