(Washington Examiner) 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.

But the weekend is packed with free time for the members and their families on the trip.

“We are excited for you to join us for CHC BOLD PAC’s 2019 Winter Retreat in San Juan, Puerto Rico! Each year, this retreat serves as a way for our CHC BOLD PAC Members and friends in the D.C. community to come together to escape the cold and discuss our shared priorities for a stronger and more prosperous country,” said a memo on the trip.

Some 109 lobbyists and corporate executives are named in the memo, a rate of 3.6 lobbyists for every member…

The event is taking place in a seaside resort where rooms go for $429 a night.

BOLD PAC, the political arm of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, chartered a 737 for members, their families, and chiefs of staff to attend the weekend…Original Source

All these dumbasses blaming Trump... 

could it be how he points out the hypocrisy of the left?

all those speeches, interviews, etc of them stating it’s a crisis and we need a wall or barrier.

Sad... I feel sorry for the lefties... you have those two old f**** to contend with and we got a savage who is not afraid to “grab them by the p****!” Because that’s how these politicians need to be treated left or right, let us not forget these f****** are so post to work for us!!  Serve us!!  The people, NOT the other way around.

TULSI GABBARD 2020 biatches!

It’s not there fault we’re having a shutdown trump refuses to bargain without wasting more taxpayers dollars on this foolish wall . So trump goes to maralogo and that’s not a problem those of you with glass houses stop throwing stones please. And see clear through the smoking mirrors trump has up to cover his wrong doing with the Russia the investigation stop being fooled people.

So. There is nothing they can do and this was a planned trip. Lobbyists are a terrible element in government and until the system is fixed, then they are doing no wrong. The liar-in-charge shut the government down and he alone is responsible for what is going on.
