House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) spent $2,993 in taxpayer money on flowers between June and October. House Majority Whip James Clyburn has a thing for Chantilly Donuts, spending about $500 at the Virginia shop in the past quarter. And Rep. Tim Walz (D-Minn.), a fiscal conservative, decided to give about $2,000 in unused office funds back to the government to help reduce the deficit.
These expenditures culled from thousands of line items released Monday by the Chief Administrative Officer of the House are just a fraction of the $300 million spent last quarter by House offices. But while the bulk of congressional office spending goes to salaries and routine office expenses, some of the line items offer a window into the personalities and priorities of each congressional office.
Pelosi, who has come under fire in the past for spending on flowers, also spent roughly $30,610 in food and beverage and about $2,740 on bottled water, contributing to the nearly $120,531 total from all congressional leadership accounts. Her offices defended the charges, saying the Speakers office holds more ceremonial events with visiting dignitaries than other congressional offices. They also use a local florist.

It is from all the money she saves from plane tickets.
That amount of money would feed multiple families for a month. Unfortunately the queen of botox has her priorities up her posterior (and her heart too).
Call Al Gore! This woman is throwing a lot of plastic water bottles in the trash!
Pelosi will soon be Speaker of the Sewer where she belongs. I wonder how Botox likes being the most despised witch in America?
I remember when they got all bent out of shape over Sarah Palin’s wardrobe expense, which was not covered by taxpayers.
Pelosi is simply doing what she can to help Obama save jobs.
Her favorite is the corpse flower.
Spending money unnecesesarily in these times of economic chaos sends a message that democrats don't give a rat's rump about taxpayers or their concerns about this administration's ability to handle the nation's finances.
Crickets are chirping about Stimulus funds transmitted to phantom districts and the 100% lack of accountability for those funds. The media once again is dead silent.
One must not deprive the Queen her due.
Whata selfish bit*h. And poor folks think this selfish floozie cares about them. What a damn joke and how stupid they are.
And she still stinks.
The Zero, Pelosi, Reid Politburo considers themselves our rulers and their arrogance has convinced these traitors that they’ve defeated and subjugated We The People. In their treasonous sick minds, we’re already their slaves.
They’re about to find out they’re wrong on all counts.
We knew she was a flower child.
She’s not the only one. Take a look at the PDF at the link. It’s all a free ride, we pay them but then they don’t have to pay for anything themselves. Water, food, office space, janitorial services, mileage, taxi, loads of staff. Nice ride we give them, no wonder they never want to leave.
