Only 20 percent of U.S. House of Representatives will visit Israel during summer recess

From Jerusalem Post, 81 congressmen to visit Israel during the summer recess, including leaders Steny Hoyer and Eric Cantor:

Most of the representatives are freshmen congressmen, with 47 – or fully half of the freshmen Republicans voted into office in 2010 – making the trip.

For many of them, this will be their first trip to Israel.

The week-long trips are sponsored by the American Israel Education Foundation, a charitable organization affiliated with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, which brings large delegations of congressmen here every other August.

House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Maryland) will head the Democratic delegation, and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Virginia) will lead one of the Republican groups.

This is just another example of how we are living in inflationary times. In 2009, the year before the last election there were only 55 members of Congress going to Israel during the August recess, 25 Republicans followed by 30 Democrats.  This brings up the old joke: "Why doesn't Israel want to become the 51st state? Because then it would only have two senators."

“For many of them, this will be their first trip to Israel”

Well, they had to lose thier virginity sooner or later. Might as well do it while Rome burns, here at home.

Ya gotta love it. For you business men out there, I pose the question…..

Do you take vacations when your business is facing bankruptcy?

“House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (D-Maryland) will head the Democratic delegation, and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Virginia) will lead one of the Republican groups”

If there are any of these pieces of **bleep** that deserve ONE WAY TICKETS, it is these two. I’d suggest that we take up a collection and attempt to bribe these two whores into staying over there, but we’d never be able to surpass Israel’s expenditure in assuring that these two **bleep**ing sluts continue to operate in DC against our best interests.
