30 dems and 109 lobbyist

In Puerto for a winter retreat while they hold the government hostage. Now you can see why we can't have a wall. The party of the rich are being wined and dinned by the rich to keep them all rich.

 

snip-

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.

 

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.

Of course, the Dem response would be that the "retreat" was planned a long time ago, long before there was a shutdown.  Then, the peanut gallery (6-800,000) not receiving their Jan 11th paycheck, obviously agreed they weren't worth having any plans changed or anything, ya'll just go on and have your little fun meeting.

Is it a secret whom the 30 Democrats, that in PR getting bought by these lobbyist, are?  There was a picture of the corrupt Menendez meeting with "key officials" on a beach but no mention of whom else is in these lobbyist back pockets?

Maybe  a  check  on   Ballard  Partners  might  shed  some  light  on  this  subject  -   -   -

 

If  one  thinks  K Street  being  only  occupied  with  Dem's  -  nice  try -  -  -

 

Get  the  check  from  Mexico,  start on  it  as  soon  as  it  clears  -  YOUR  MAN  SAID ,  &  Mexico's  going  to  PAY  FOR  IT  -

Nice that they stayed in the country. Written up to stir up rubes who would equate PR with some alien place.

PR is much better than those gop members who went to the CCCP!

In PR they can see the still very visible devastation that exists on the island from the hurricane that trump refuses to help with.

It was Bill Çlinton that went to the Soviet Union during the Vietnam war. Also comrade Bernie Sanders got married there. 

 

BTW, the Soviet Union has been dissolved these past 30 years. CCCP is no more.
