    House provides $200 million for gov't VIP jets

    House provides $200 million for gov't VIP jets - Yahoo! News

    "The move raised eyebrows from some Congress-watchers since the planes are sometimes used to ferry lawmakers on overseas trips. And the House measure directs that two of the aircraft be located at Andrews Air Force Base in the Washington suburbs — a favored departure point for congressional trips."


    But they can't friggin' get a health care bill of any kind approved. Who are these jerks really?

    Also I would like to point out one other itme some of you seem to be missing when Congress use these aircraft it because The Secret Service has deemed them to. the Secret Service has the last call on how and what type of transportation is used by Congress. If a group of folks from Vongress are going over to lets say Turkey to discuss trade items then the Secrete Service will step in and say great but you will be taking one of the C-40As for this trip.
