Question: What will happen to Nancy Pelosi’s plane when she is no longer Speaker of the House?
Answer: According to Leslie Paige, Citizens for Government Waste, Nancy Pelosi’s plane will most likely go back into circulation and be used to shuttle generals and high ranking officials. Speaker Elect John Boehner announced on Wednesday that he will not use the military jet supplied to the current Speaker of the House. Instead, he will fly commercial from Washington to his district in Ohio like he has been doing for the last 20 years. Military aircraft was first provided to the Speaker, second in line to the presidency, in response to heightened security after September 11, 2001.
