Pelosi has proven she’s out of touch

Kudos to Maggie Dodson’s letter of April 21 on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s luxurious trips abroad, including her entire family on U.S. Air Force planes fully stocked with the most expensive liquors and food, funded entirely by American taxpayers.

Upon arrival in such cities as Paris, London and Rome, accommodations are at the most luxurious hotels and delicacy dining at the most elegant restaurants, again all gratuitous of the American taxpayers.

And to Frank Phillips’ letter of April 30, written with blinders, that President Donald Trump — not Pelosi — is the free spender.

Trump was wealthy when he became president and gives his salary to charity. On the other hand, Pelosi became the richest member of Congress while in office. Let that sink in. She loves her wealthy lobbyists. She enjoys all the luxuries of her multi-million dollar mansions in esteemed Pacific Heights, San Francisco, and in the affluential Georgetown section of D.C., and also owning vineyards in Napa Valley, California.

Living in luxury, Pelosi is out of touch with the American people.

As thousands filed for unemployment and stood for hours in line for food, Pelosi appeared on TV in her kitchen showing off her two $24,000 sub-zero refrigerators and proceeded to show her cache of 15 flavors of expensive $14/pint gourmet ice cream.

Pelosi is tone deaf to the needs of the 26 million Americans who have lost their jobs not knowing how they are going to be able to pay their bills and survive. She then held up the stimulus bill to help Americans for weeks as she tried to get her pork projects incorporated into the bill that had nothing to do with the COVID-19 relief bill.

This just shows where her priorities lie, as items such as millions for national endowment for arts, millions for bailouts of underfunded pension plans for teamsters and labor groups, millions for Planned Parenthood for abortions and billions for the bailout of the postal service, are just a few of the hundreds she wanted included in the bill.

Pelosi proved herself to be the narcissist she is when at the State of the Union address, she literally, in front of millions as viewed on TV, tore up the presidential speech given to her by the president.

This was to get back at the president because her two-month impeachment against him had failed.

Your vote in November is significant for Republicans to take back control of the House of Rep­resentatives in order to remove the out-of-control speaker.
