Wasserman Schultz: My Aides
Can´t Afford Good Meals

Big Government, by Mike Flynn

Original Article

Posted By:Drive, 3/22/2013 8:32:03 AM

On Tuesday, FL Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and her colleague VA Rep. Jim Moran openly whined about the impacts of spending cuts on their personal office budgets. Moran fretted that, with the looming sequester cuts, he may have to cut one staffer from his office. Wasserman Schultz upped his ante, however. She, almost literally, suggested that her staff were on the brink of starvation, due to the cuts. Speaking at a hearing of the House Legislative Branch Appropriations Subcommittee, Wasserman Schultz worried that prices of meals in House

In the meantime, several republican reps have turned in hundreds of thousands of dollars in saved office expense. These pig democrats think they are kings and queens.

Well Debbie Wasserman Schultz is good for one thing. She is eye candy. It isn´t often you find a dem lady politician that is really beautiful and sexy looking. Debbie can´t help it she stereotypes the beautiful but dumb blonde. The dems need to keep her around because she is so decorative.

How long will the Republican opposition allow this tragic situation to continue? When will the American people cease their craven greediness and fork over their fair share, so that moral outrages like reducing heroic public servants to eating subpar meals will never happen again? Shouldn´t the public trough be filled with the finest cuisine in the greatest nation on earth? Have the Republicans no shame? Have you no shame, America?

Years ago when I was at the Capitol, I was amazed at how low the prices were in the Senate restaurant. I figured it had to be a heavily subsidized operation, using taxpayer money so that elected officials could have such a cheap meal. I would not be surprised to learn that the House restaurant and the Senate restaurant both were huge money losers, much like the Senate barber shop. (There was a recent thread posted here that revealed that the barbershop cost us $5 million over a few years.)

Woman, your aides can eat in the Senate dining room for next to nothing and you know it. It´s HUGELY subsidized. Besides, your aides´ salaries are much higher than the average middle class employee and the rest of us manage to avoid starvation. And, for the millionth time, there are no SPENDING CUTS! Only a small decrease in the expected annual increase. Wasserman Schultz has no less money to run her office this year than last. What a liar!!!!! Where, oh, where are the Republicans calling out the RATS on these lies?

I strongly urge little Debbie to help her staff pay for their food necessities. She has more money than she needs, and for her to let them starve is unforgivable. This woman needs training wheels for her brain - it just isn´t making it on its own.

#9 is correct - among liberal women, Debbie is eye candy.
That said, have her staffers considered moonlighting? I hear you can usually eat the take out orders not picked up after an hour and many donut shops throw out the old stuff. How about dumpster diving on the Potomac. Gotta be some good eats in the dumpsters of Georgetown.

What a coincidence. It´s our day of the month to shop at Winco (groceries) and Wal-Mart (essentials) and it takes us about an hour in each store, 2 hours total. We go there once a month to stock up, we live about 25 miles away....I´d like to take this sh**-head schultz with us to teach her how to shop for food and essentials a month at a time. We spend about $150-200 at each store, for the month....If she cant do what we do, then her and the rest of the lefty witches and devils elected by stoopid stooge LoMoFo´s need to turn in their stinkin´ badges and go home! What an idiot!

Of course, it isnt about being thrifty at all, they all think that they are ROYALTY and we peons owe them so much more...If she ever took the sh** out of her mouth and made some sense, even the idiots would know how much this dumb dora lies all the time. ALL THE TIME! It´s a trademark of lefties--LIARS!!!

I was at the grocery store behind a woman in the checkout line yesterday, and she was chatting about how her two kids were aged two and four months, then answered her smart phone, and finally paid for her load of name-brand groceries with her EBT card. She could have bought twice as much if she´d purchased some fresh foods and vegetables and some store brands. I, on the other hand, pulled a dollar bill and some change out of my wallet to buy a few vegetables that I needed for dinner. I didn´t want to withdraw cash at the ATM or use a credit card to buy just a couple of things.

Patriotic American and U.S. Senator David Vitter (R., La.) pushed backed against the Democratic Party’s troubling pro-cancer agenda this week by defending libertarian philanthropists Charles and David Koch, calling them “two of the most patriotic Americans on the face of the earth.” “I’ll be honest with you. My reaction is God bless the Koch brothers, they’re fighting for our freedoms,” Vitter said at an event in Shreveport, La., on Tuesday in response to a constituent’s question about the nefarious “Kotch” brothers.

The Telegraph has obtained the full communication record of MH370, including the crucial moments in the lead-up to the disappearance of the Boeing 777 and its 239 passengers. It reveals the messages relayed between the cockpit and air traffic controllers during the period when the plane is believed by investigators to have already been sabotaged. As the search continues for possible wreckage of the aircraft in the southern Indian Ocean, the transcript marks a further piece of evidence in the baffling mystery of flight MH370.

More than half of the cigarettes sold in New York State are smuggled in from other places to avoid the Empire State´s taxes on smokes, which have soared nearly 200 percent since 2006, according to a report issued by the conservative Tax Foundation. New York is the highest net importer of smuggled cigarettes -- illegal smokes account for 56.9 percent of the state´s total market. New York´s cigarettes tax is $4.35 per pack, the country´s highest.

Ten people are unaccounted for after a fire that destroyed a motel at the Jersey shore, killing three people, authorities said Friday. Firefighters responded to the Mariner´s Cove Motor Inn in Point Pleasant Beach just after 5:30 a.m. Friday. "Within five minutes, literally, it was in flame," one witness told the New Jersey Star-Ledger. Ocean County Prosecutor Joseph Coronato said three males died in the blaze and eight people were injured. Several of the injured sustained serious burns, including one woman who was rescued by firefighters after she holed up in a shower to escape smoke and flames. Coronato said the search and recovery

Russell Crowe stars in Darren Aronofsky´s Bible-based epic. Darren Aronofsky wrestles one of scripture´s most primal stories to the ground and extracts something vital and audacious, while also pushing some aggressive environmentalism, in Noah. Whereas for a century most Hollywood filmmakers have tread carefully and respectfully when tackling biblical topics in big-budget epics aimed at a mass audience, Aronofsky has been daring, digging deep to develop a bold interpretation of a tale which, in the original, offers a lot of room for speculation and invention. The narrative of the global flood that wiped out almost all earthly life is the original

A 39-year-old passenger died after he was shot in the head while on a B15 bus in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn, authorities said. Police say the teen was on the bus near Lafayette Boulevard and Marcus Garvey Boulevard around 6:20 when he got into an argument with a rival. He began firing shots on the bus.

MOSCOW — There is no need for Russia to further retaliate against U.S. sanctions, President Vladimir Putin said Friday as Russia´s upper house of parliament endorsed the annexation of Crimea from Ukraine. Moscow made its first retaliatory shot on Thursday by banning nine U.S. officials and lawmakers from entering Russia, but Putin indicated that Russia would likely refrain from curtailing cooperation in areas such as Afghanistan. Moscow appears to hope to limit the damage from the latest U.S. and EU sanctions and avoid further Western blows.

The Freedom Tower, America’s top terror target, doesn’t have a single working surveillance camera inside — a stunning security lapse that let a New Jersey teen roam the top floors undetected for two hours, The Post has learned. The video system for 1 World Trade Center “won’t be operational until the building opens later this year,” said a source familiar with the security plan.

A study released by the Gates Foundation is promoting a system that would track the careers of college graduates long after they receive their degrees, attacking the National Association for Independent Colleges and Universities for promoting laws that prevent up-close surveillance of students by the government. The study, titled "College Blackout," argues that the proposed system, the Student Unit Recording System, would allow a more nuanced approach to studying the value of higher education. This requires knowing the life story of every student and tracking information like income after college and major simultaneously. The data already exists, the study argues, though

President Barack Obama declared Wednesday that “none of us can claim to know exactly what [labor organizer] Cesar [Chavez] would have said about this [2014 immigration] fight, or any other.” Chavez is a hero to progressives, but he actually waged a campaign against low-wage immigration. Obama’s attempt to whitewash Chavez’s stance came during a short speech that he gave in the White House to the producers, actors and supporting crew of a new movie about Chavez.

In a question and answer session at Stanford Center at Peking University in Beijing, China, First Lady Michelle Obama said that sometimes one needs to do things she´s uncomfortable with. She made the comments in response to a question about studying abroad. (Snip) The first lady responded, "Excellent. And one thing that you pointed out that I think it’s important to consider is not letting fear be your guide. Andthat’s oftentimes what holds many young people back from doing fabulous things. Let’s take my husband, for example. He hasdragged me kicking and screaming into things that I wanted parts of. (Laughter.) And a lot of it was

ONCE upon a time I had a cat named Lucky, and the name fit. She turned up on our doorstep as a stray and stayed with us for 10 years, until her rather gruesome demise. (More about that later.) I liked her because she was a free spirit, and a survivor, going out for two, three, even five days, in all seasons. She’d show up when it suited her, waiting in the dark before dawn till I came downstairs and turned on my desk lamp. Then she’d make her presence known by rising up on her hind legs and gently

First daughter Sasha Obama cut a stylish figure in jeans and shades as the Obama girls visited the Great Wall of China today. Michelle Obama, Malia, 15, and Sasha, 12, were left alone to explore the Mutianyu section of the historical landmark in the northern Beijing suburbs though Chinese police officers looked on protectively. The three walked a stretch of the wall that looks out to a massive rock inscription on a hillside that reads in Chinese: ´Loyal to Chairman Mao.´ The country has been fascinated by Mrs Obama´s ´elegance´ during the weeklong visit to the country to promote educational

A feminist studies professor at a California state university is facing criminal charges after a videotaped run-in with a teenage pro-life demonstrator in which she snatched an anti-abortion sign and appeared to get physical with the girl. University of California at Santa Barbara Associate Professor Mireille Miller-Young was charged with one misdemeanor count each of theft, battery and vandalism in the March 4 incident, Santa Barbara County District Attorney Joyce Dudley announced Friday. The charges came days after 16-year-old Thrin Short and her parents met with prosecutors. Thrin told authorities what she told FoxNews.com earlier this month: She, her older

First lady Michelle Obama told students that freedom of speech should be a universal right during her extravagant, no-press-allowed tour of China — a hypocritical move that will surely draw the ire of critics, according to an expert. “That is troublesome. That goes beyond hypocritical, and I think the American media and the international media has every right to call her and the Obama administration on that — that they permitted that to happen,” said Tom Whalen, a political history professor at Boston University. “It makes you shake your head, albeit sadly.” The first lady stopped at Peking University in Beijing yesterday

When Washington, D.C., councilman and former Mayor Marion Barry this week said that whites need to be “more open-minded” about African-American politicians, claiming “blacks are more open-minded than” whites, he was suggesting that whites can´t do what blacks do -- embrace the other race. But a new study of 212 black college students made available to Secrets found little open-mindedness: Blacks don´t like it when other blacks associate with whites, to the point of refusing help to an African-American experiencing “a run of bad luck” -- just because they have white friends. The study in the April edition of the authoritative journal

Caraway told Channel 4 the pain was extreme for a long time after he was attacked in February. "I´m doing better, just taking things one day at a time," said Caraway. "My wife and

In a constituent meeting gone awry that was captured on shaky, amateur video, embattled Rep. Renee Ellmers (R-NC) berated a group of local activists who oppose amnesty legislation, suggesting they were racist and saying they didn´t have “any damn facts.” “You´re telling me what people have told you? You don´t have any damn facts!” Ellmers exploded at one of the activists when he said that employers – who often claim a labor shortage to argue for amnesty – frequently don´t post job openings in that region.

First lady Michelle Obama told a group of Chinese students Saturday that free speech is a universal right that makes countries stronger. Nations are “stronger and more prosperous” when people’s opinions are heard," Obama said during her trip to China, which employs some of the strictest limits on the Internet. “We respect the uniqueness of other cultures and societies, but when it comes to expressing yourself freely and worshipping as you choose and having open access to information, we believe those universal rights — they are universal rights that are the birthright of every person on this planet,” she said

Last week Al Sharpton embraced convicted vote fraudster Melowese Richardson at a “voting rights” rally in Cincinnati. The United States Department of Justice under Eric Holder has done nothing to Melowese Richardson 410 days after she admitted on camera that she committed multiple federal felonies by voting six times for President Obama’s reelection. Federal law makes it a felony to vote more than once for President. In fact, 42 U.S.C. Section 1973i(e) subjects Richardson to twenty-five years in federal prison for her six votes for Obama. The lack of DOJ action against an unrepentant federal vote fraudster combined with Richardson’s lionization by

Quoting unnamed administration officials, CNN host Jake Tapper revealed that the White House is “concerned” that Russia could invade South and East Ukraine “possibly as soon as this weekend.” He said that, in spite of Russia’s assurances that the large numbers of troops and military equipment amassed along the Ukrainian border are there merely for training exercises, the White House believes that Moscow could be planning a broader incursion into Ukraine. “There is now real apprehension that Vladimir Putin could push even further into Ukraine, perhaps as soon as this weekend,” Tapper said. He quoted anonymous administration officials who are “concerned”

One of four gubernatorial candidates introduced to California Republicans recently is a registered sex offender who spent more than a decade in state prison, convicted of crimes including voluntary manslaughter and assault with intent to commit rape. (Snip) Champ, a little-known political neophyte from the Fresno County community of Tollhouse, did not directly mention his criminal past during his speech but said, "In my life, I´ve been held accountable because of my stupidity. I do not want anyone else to be enslaved because of their lack of knowledge." Champ´s rap sheet is lengthy. Court records show that in 1992,
