Guess Which State’s Senators — and Which Political Party — Spent the Most Taxpayer Money on Charter Flights Last Year

Why fly commercial when the American taxpayer will foot the bill for a private plane?

Last year, 24 senators spent nearly $1 million on charter flights, USA Today reported, and while some of those senators used private planes to reach remote areas of their states that they likely could not have reached otherwise, others flew into well-served metropolises.

The worst offenders: New York’s two Democratic senators, Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand.

I don't need to read the post to know which political party they are talking about. Democrat. They are proficient at only 2 things-lying and spending other people's money.
