I’ve used this term before to the sheer puzzlement of my liberal friends. What could I possibly mean? Well, a limosine liberal is one who is in favor of social programs being funded by raising taxes on the middle class because the liberal is mucho-wealthy and can afford to pay… whereas the middle class worker is punished.
Another example….. Babs Streisand is rich enough to keep the little people off of her stretch of Malibu’s beach. And, despite her support of the environment, she sued to stop an environmental group from taking aerial photos of the beach to advance their cause.
Limosine Liberals = Do As I Say, Not As I Do
Here’s a priceless example of some of the most Limosine-est of them all… (hat tip: Polipundit)
Members of the Bay Area’s congressional delegation, which includes some of the wealthiest lawmakers in Congress, have built significant personal fortunes by capitalizing on the region’s pricey real estate market and investing heavily in the stock market.
Two of the Bay Area’s best-known lawmakers, Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco, are fixtures on the list of Congress’ richest members.
But the majority of the region’s lawmakers are millionaires or multimillionaires — including those who spent most of their careers in government rather than the more lucrative private sector, according to the latest financial disclosure forms released last week.
And true to her Limosine Credo, Pelosi has the nerve to release this statement:
There’s one good reason to keep the GOP in control of Congress. The working class are in charge (for now). But Speaker Pelosi will most likely let us eat cake. *shuddering to even type the words*
I’m hunting for other good reasons to vote Republican this November…. but that’s a whopper in and of itself!
