Did Tlaib cancel trip to grandma’s when she realized she couldn’t charge taxpayers?

As I have said MANY times over the years – it is a waste of taxpayer money to allow these politicians to go on their *trips* which are nothing more than tax paid vacations that have never been EARNED.  We have American representatives (not Congressmen) in almost if not all foreign countries that can cover what these vacationing politicians claim to be going on their TRIPS for.  And with today’s technology these *meetings* can be held via Skype or similar transmissions.  Of course doing it via SKYPE means none of that delicious food or luxury accommodations.  And, I am always amazed at the reasons given for these TRIPS.  Do we need to find out how to incorporate some foreign failures into American government? Government, IMHO, is to govern over the citizens of their nation – not interfere in others and especially not to send picked politicians to make these TRIPS at the EXPENSE of the taxpayers.  The only tax funded envoys to foreign nations would be the military and even then it is my thought that American military is to DEFEND our borders not fight on other lands for some political purpose.

Time to eliminate the Congressional LUXURY vacation plans and demand they remain in their offices here in America and do the WORK they were elected to do – not campaign and vacation in luxury resorts.  All travel, including in country, should be paid for out of their PERSONAL pockets.  End the tax paid travel expenses.

Time to END the Tlaib, Omar, AOC, etc. Punch and Judy shows they have been performing.
They haven’t done an hours worth of WORK for their constituents since they took office.  They are way too busy mouthing the COMMUNIST/ALINSKY propaganda.  Perhaps we need to deduct the Alinsky time from their paychecks.

What good fortune for governments that the people do not think. Adolf Hitler

Anti-Semitic Democratic Congresswoman Rashida Tlaib refused Israel’s offer to let her visit after her failed PR stunt backfired spectacularly.

However, the real reason why Tlaib decided not to visit her 90-year-old grandmother in Israel could be that she’s a cheapskate. Tlaib would’ve had to pay for the costs of her trip out of her own pocket because it was a personal trip, and not a work-related function.

“When Congresswoman Tlaib reapplied for entry into Israel for the sole purpose of visiting her grandmother, she made the entire trip a personal matter,” a senior aide on the House Ethics Committee told the Washington Free Beacon. “At that point, going on her original trip and allowing the sponsoring group to pay for anything would constitute an illegal gift.”

The aide added: “That’s why she couldn’t go. If she got on that plane, she’d probably be breaking the law by accepting an illegal gift.”

As BizPac Review reported, Tlaib is already being investigated for potential ethics violations.

Israel initially refused entry to Rashida Tlaib and fellow Democrat Ilhan Omar due to their support of the anti-Israel Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement. Tlaib and Omar also have a long history of racist, anti-Semitic rhetoric.

In 2017, Israel enacted a law that prevents foreigners who support boycotts against Israel from entering the country.

In July 2019, the Democrat-led House of Representatives passed a resolution opposing a boycott of Israel. Both Omar and Tlaib, who are Muslim, voted against the resolution.

Tlaib and Omar were scheduled to visit Israel last month on a trip sponsored by the anti-Israel, pro-terrorist group Miftah, which has praised suicide bombers as “sacrificing their lives for the cause.”

When Israel initially expressed reluctance to let them in, Tlaib and Omar hijacked the news cycle by whining that Israel was being mean to them.
