Good. No one should be going on holidays....I mean diplomatic trips, while the gov is shut down. Cancel pay for all senators as well so they feel the pain of some fed works. Dems wont stop this shut down until it hurts their pockets, Trump needs the win so won't back down either.

ROFL... BTW as a tax payer, I think it is more important to stay in DC and get everything backup and running rather than traveling overseas.

I propose that any future shutdown requires that only senators and congress people go without pay. All other government agencies would continue as normal. I bet that would expedite the negotiation process!

ROFL... comedy gold, especially when Pelosi should be more concerned about budget negotiations.

She represents some district in California. She should not be galavanting abroad in the tax payers dime ever, but especially during a shutdown.

"Petty and mean spirited" Oh you mean like not showing up on my a meeting that you were invited to? Or calling the President names. I see a man taking charge and not letting you have fun, instead of doing your job.

She has no buisness going over seas while she's leading the obstructionism to the executive that's causing this shutdown. Throwing in "to thank our troops" is just a means of turning criticism around by invoking the military; I have an odd feeling that the troops out there aren't too keen on meeting her.

Pelosi's trip would be supported by the 89th Airlift Wing on specially outfitted 757 or 737. Yes, the President is in charge of the military, and can call off a flight like this. Pelosi can still go touring, but on commercial aircraft.

Can someone explain to me why the speaker of the house who, as far as I know, has no influence or power within the department of Homeland security and department of defense, needs "to obtain critical national security & intelligence briefings from those on the front lines"?

I hope Mitch McConnell doesn't need a military jet either. He's the culprit who won't let the Senate vote to reopen the government sectors not involved.

Leaving in the middle of a shutdown to "thank our troops," so she can avoid criticism by invoking the military; As if the Democrats care about the service.

I'm sure Pelosi will take it in stride and won't begin impeachment proceedings. lol She's right for not asking furloughed government workers to work for an non-crisis event. BTW, Republicans in Congress wouldn't give Trump wall money when they were in the majority either.
