Pelosi Ripped After Taking House Democrats out for Dinner Party as Troops Pay Price (tr)

According to media reports, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) invited the 192 Democrat Members of the House of Representatives out to dinner at a fancy Italian restaurant in Washington, D.C. Saturday during the first day of the government shutdown.

Politico’s Jake Sherman was first to report on Pelosi’s dinner.

✔ @JakeSherman PELOSI hosting a dinner for all House Dems tonight at aqua al 2..... 3:28 PM - Jan 20, 2018

The Hill’s Scott Wong reported the menu, “On the menu at Pelosi’s dinner at Acqua al 2: cheeses and meats, pasta, lots of wine and for dessert … cheesecake with strawberry drizzle & tiramisu”

@scottwongDC Members fan out across DC for dinner. Spotted Alabama lawmaker grabbing pizzas at Matchbox on Barracks Row; Dems heading to Acqua al 2

Acqua Al 2, located blocks from the Capitol, describes itself as “an authentic Italian restaurant located in the heart of the historic Eastern Market in Washington, DC.” The menu is not cheap and not the most expensive either for D.C., but dinner for two would put a hurt on a working couples’ budget with dinner entrees running from $18 to $39, not including drinks, appetizers and dessert.

Military families blasted Pelosi for living it up while soldiers are going without due to the shutdown.

🇺🇸Thomas-S Fla🇺🇸 @thomassfl 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

Jeff Works4aliving @JeffreyusaSmith Wow. My Son in the military gets screwed and she celebrating? What has this country coming to?

Italian restaurant? I hope the black ca-cas members didn’t go. That would be culture appropriation.

Pelosi is eating high on the hog, while our troops are probably eating
stored MRE’s. Pelosi is digusting.

Did Piglosi have to sweep any Thousand Dollar Crumbs off the table?

Democrats run for office because they want to do good.

Most of them do pretty darn good - for themselves.

They end up millionaires with an annual retirement higher than the average citizen earns in his/her peak earning years.

Nancy $40 is a gigantic tax cut, $1,000 is a trivial bonus Pelosi had her nose in the trough?

Say it isn't so!

dinner entrees running from $18 to $39, not including drinks, appetizers and dessert.

Figure at least $75 a head including drinks.

That's $14,400 without tip.

Add a 20% tip of $2,880 and the meal comes in at $17,280.
