Democrats Go on Luxurious Puerto Rican Vacation as Federal Workers Go Without Pay

The whole media establishment has risen up as one to play the advocate for thousands of government workers who are going unpaid during the ongoing government shut down. But as federal workers go without, Democrats have jetted off together for a luxurious vacation event at a ritzy Puerto Rican resort.

Naturally, the media is practically ignoring the hypocrisy of Democrats sunning themselves on exclusive beaches while their constituents and supporters go without money to buy food… but, you know how that goes.

Presidential spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders tried to point out this hypocrisy on Sunday.

“Democrats in Congress are so alarmed about federal workers not getting paid they’re partying on the beach instead of negotiating a compromise to reopen the government and secure the border,” she tweeted.

Indeed, Democrat Senator Bob Menendez was spotted chatting up a sexy blond in a bikini on a sunny Puerto Rican beach:

Menendez has been accused of hiring underage prostitutes. So, it’s nice that you can go from being accused of sexual improprieties to a ritzy beach resort to chat up pretty blonds. Only Democrats can do this.

Menendez isn’t the only Democrat enjoying a ritzy vacation in sunny Puerto Rico.

As the Washington Examiner reports:

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.

The Democrats are being wined and dined by dozens of high-dollar lobbyists who want them to hand over billions in our tax dollars.

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.

Now that the Democrats are back in charge of the House, they expect the government spigots to be opened wide again.
