Nancy Pelosi has not even taken over as Speaker of the House yet, but she is already coming under fire from new members of Congress within her own party.
Same Old Same Old
The younger generation of Democrat made it quite clear to the party they wanted new leadership atop the party.
The powers that be, however, did not heed their warning.
Now, some of the newer members of Congress are calling out Nancy Pelosi over her decision making.
Pelosi is expected to be named Speaker once the new representatives take their seats.
After Pelosi announced the forming of the Climate Crisis Committee, one of the newer and more edgy Democrats had some very harsh words.
The spokesman for incoming New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stated, “This committee if it turns out that the rumors about it are true, sound [sic] about as useful as a screen door on a submarine.”
“As it’s portrayed, it’s going to be completely incapable of solving the greatest threat to humankind,” he added.
Ocasio-Cortez made the point we have made here in this column on numerous occasions … congressional committees are useless and nothing more than salary justifiers.
After announcing his retirement, Trey Gowdy said the same exact thing in that they are a complete waste of time and taxpayer money and NEVER actually result in anything happening.
Look no further than the investigations conducted by Congress over Hillary’s email scandal and Benghazi as proof of that.
It Gets Worse for Pelosi
The embarrassment for Pelosi does not stop there, either. Her worry about the climate did not stop her from jetting off to Hawaii for a luxurious holiday vacation during the government shutdown.
Photos have popped up online of Pelosi at a very expensive resort in Hawaii where rooms can cost thousands of dollars a night.
Of course, she can well afford the pricey stay — the multi-millionaire politician is one of the richest members of Congress.
While Trump has remained at work in Washington with the hopes getting the Dems to the negotiating table, Pelosi was throwing back Mai-Tai’s on the beach.
While everyday Americans across the country who hold government jobs face going without paychecks during the shutdown, Pelosi has been enjoying high-end luxury.
Pelosi’s actions make it very clear the American people are not very high up on her list of priorities.
What is on her list, though, is obstructing Donald Trump from doing what the voters put him in office to do.
