Will you fly away in my beautiful new plane...

If memory serves me right, in Animal Farm, after the animals outlaw the use of sheets, the pigs amend this rule to give them an exception. In the Kremlin also, party members had privileges that the common man did not have.

Following this pattern of the left, the democrat Congress is in the process of buying a fleet of planes to transport them in the style to which they think they are entitled. These are the same legislators who criticized car industry executives who came to testify in their private jets.
With deficits in the trillions, Congress wants new jets. A new low for politicians that are pretty low already. At least now we have the Internet to fight them.
The Wall Street Journal has a good article on the mounting opposition.
