    It’s a continuation of a Bush era policy that was meant to protect our Executive leaders in an age of terror.References :

    Union is what bankrupted GM.

    My accounting professors have been watching it happen for the last 6 years. One predicted GM’s bankruptcy back in 2005, 1 year before they sold GMAC, their most profitable division.References :

    Those planes are made here in Wichita. Cessna, Learjet, Hawker-Beech, Boeing all make planes here. After the Obamination decried this behavior as irresponsible the plants started laying people off left and right. Obama is a disaster; he’s more of a catastrophe actually. It will continue to get worse.References :

    Don’t be silly, Congress are the ruling elite, and take care of us at least we should allow them to live in luxury for all their sacrifices.References :

    Maybe they will socialize the travel industry next so they can get more private jets, and we can use paper airplanes when they tax us into slavery (more) to pay for it.References :

    "The Pentagon asked for only one of the $65 million planes as part of an ongoing effort to replace aging jets such as the C-20, an older Gulfstream Aerospace Corp. plane that costs about $6,000 an hour to operate, as opposed to about $3,000 for the C-37."

    Sounds like good long term thinking. These planes will end up paying for themselves in less than five years.References :

    Yes are they biased much? I can’t believe how truly two faced these Democrats are. We can do it, but you cannot is their theme throughout. They must be stopped in 2010.References :
