House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Slips Quietly into Big Island Resort

Hawaii Reporter:
News that President Barack Obama arrived in Hawaii this weekend to join his wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha in time for a Christmas holiday has been covered by news media worldwide.
The first family and their friends have been enjoying a reclusive 17-day holiday vacation in beach front homes in Kailua, Oahu.
But another powerful politician is here for the holidays as well, albeit on another island and with less media attention.
Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi, D-CA, who served as Speaker of the House and is now head of the House minority, is once again spending her Christmas at the exotic Four Seasons Resort Hualalai at Historic Ka’upulehu in Kona on the island of Hawaii.
Pelosi reportedly plans to spend her Christmas Eve at midnight mass in St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Kailua-Kona.
Pelosi spent the last two Christmas holidays in Kona at the same hotel in an elaborate suite that rents for $10,000 a night.

Your barb at speaking engagements and lobbyists are merely prescriptions to treat symptoms. If you want to reduce corruption and self-entitlement from elected officials, give them less to govern. You give them less to govern in Washington D.C., by reforming the Commerce Clause to a much narrower scope.

Smaller view of the reach of Congress' power under the Commerce Clause = smaller federal government = smaller scope of Congressional reach = less influence, corruption, and manipulation from Congresspersons and less interest in our Congresspersons from lobbyists.

Without a cap, there will always be money chasing influence.
No matter how small you make any federal govt it will be the largest institution of any kind in this nation.
