30 Democrats in Puerto Rico with 109 lobbyists for weekend despite shutdown

<More Surprise Here>

Some 30 Democratic lawmakers left the government shutdown behind Friday on a chartered flight to Puerto Rico for a winter retreat with 109 lobbyists and corporate executives during which they planned to see the hit Broadway show "Hamilton" and attend three parties including one with the show's cast. Those attending the Congressional Hispanic Caucus BOLD PAC winter retreat in San Juan planned to meet with key officials to discuss the cleanup after Hurricane Maria at a roundtable Saturday. But the weekend is packed with free time for the members and their families on the trip.

"We are excited for you to join us for CHC BOLD PAC's 2019 Winter Retreat in San Juan, Puerto Rico! Each year, this retreat serves as a way for our CHC BOLD PAC Members and friends in the D.C. community to come together to escape the cold and discuss our shared priorities for a stronger and more prosperous country," said a memo on the trip.

Some 109 lobbyists and corporate executives are named in the memo, a rate of 3.6 lobbyists for every member. They include those from several big K Street firms, R.J. Reynolds, Facebook, Comcast, Amazon, PhRMA, Microsoft, Intel, Verizon, and unions like the National Education Association.

I'm going to guess that a number of envelopes changed hands between the lobbyists and the democrats. There may even be some "speaking fees" involved.

I keep wondering what it's going to take before the good people in this country decide they've seen enough...

The problem is that the media and left have fooled so many into believing that being conservative is evil. Like so many definitions the left has altered conservatism to mean racist, xenophobic, homophobic and sexist. They have convinced so many that the only way to be compassionate, caring and accepting is to be progressive. Disagreeing with anything has been redefined as hatred.

They've already decided and elected Trump as a solution. If that fails it could get ugly.

They all just flew over it at 37,000 feet. Is that good enough?

Just more proof that Democrats are not serious people. This is a game to them. They covet power not serve people. That they control the House has already set America back 70 years. Just how they want it.
