Troops get lucky, Pelosi cancels Mother’s Day visit due to sequestration

Apparently, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., travels to either Iraq or Afghanistan to visit the troops on every Mother’s Day. Not so this year, she announced — sequestration problems, she claims.

“Every year for the past few years, on Mother’s Day, I’ve gone–I’ve taken a delegation–into Afghanistan or Iraq, we’re alternating now, now Afghanistan–for Mother’s Day to say thank you to our moms and, by the way, our grandmothers, who are serving there. Some young grandmothers. But, nonetheless, grandmothers. To also thank all of our troops for what they do to protect America’s families. I won’t be going this particular weekend because we don’t have–you know, under sequestration, we don’t have codels.”

Lucky troops.
