Boehner to Fly Commercial as House Speaker

Quoting Fox News:
“Presumptive House Speaker John Boehner said Wednesday that he will not use the military jet provided to current Speaker Nancy Pelosi to fly from D.C. to his home district each week, but will board the same airlines as everybody else.

Pelosi had claimed after she became speaker in 2007 that a military aircraft was offered to her in light of position as second in line to the presidency. But Boehner said he's not so concerned.”

Yeah, I know…
It is almost entirely a symbolic gesture. But, it goes one heck of a long way towards reversing the symbolism of tone deaf elitist arrogance we’ve come to expect from Nancy Pelosi and the rest of her Dims.

Kudos, Mr. Boehner!



If it was only believable. The Speaker can not travel commercial. The schedule of places to be and appointments around the world prohibit it. If you think that the new Speaker is going to fly commercial then you must believe that he never will have to be anywhere on time.

The only travel included in this pledge is the routine travel which Congressman Boehner has -- for many years now -- conducted on a weekly basis between Washington D.C. and his home district.

That was the same routine travel for which Pelosi decided she needed a larger military jet which would provide for non-stop travel to Cali.
