The House Democrats are really enjoying this extended “Coronavirus” taxpayer-funded vacation they’re on…they don’t have to come to work, they can just sit around the house in their $1,200 dollar jammies, eating is $ 14 dollar ice cream out of their $33 thousand dollar refrigerator all while you and I foot the bill.
Or, they can really have some serious fun, like Arizona Democrat Rep. Greg Stanton, and sit out on their boat while they “call into” a committee meeting.
Typical elites, right?
Greg probably didn’t think he’d get busted, but someone who was actually at work in D.C. filmed an image of Greg that showed up on an iPad – and you can clearly see he’s out on the water having the time of his life.

Rep Stanton responded to being busted. He offered up a flimsy and phony apology…and then used his children to likely “lie” so he could try and weasel out of trouble.
What a jerk.
There’s no getting around it: I messed up and I’m sorry for it. I participated in the five-hour markup mostly from inside and went outside to watch my kids (while listening in the entire time) shortly before the vote was called.

At this point, Democrat politicians just don’t care. They’re living the high life on the taxpayers’ dime, boating, drinking, just having a blast during a so-called “pandemic.”
