San Juan PR, Despite a partial government shutdown with no end in sight, about 30 Democratic members of Congress including NJ Senator Bob Menendez traveled to Puerto Rico to enjoy the weekend  with their families and lobbyists  for a winter retreat where they also planned to see a special performance of the hit Broadway show “Hamilton.”

Those attending the Congressional Hispanic Caucus BOLD PAC gathering in San Juan also planned to meet Saturday with Puerto Rican officials to discuss ongoing cleanup efforts from Hurricane Maria, according to a report.

They were joined by at last count 109 lobbyists and corporate executives who are named in a memo welcoming the guests, which include some from prominent Washington firms, R.J. Reynolds, Facebook, Comcast, Amazon, PhRMA, Microsoft, Intel, Verizon, and of coarse unions like the National Education Association.

  1. What morons!!!

  2. What bothers me the most is that workers in the PRIVATE SECTOR get fired all the time; take the case of GM firing auto workers when they closed plant. Those laid off workers have to hustle and find a new job. BUT GOVT. workers expect a cushy job for life; with frequent pay raises, top health insurance, tons of vacation job, and other perks for real laid back easy work, most of the time. So now when they are facing the real world , what private sectors workers face every day, the possibility of being laid off they complain about being cheated. They don’t realize no one owes them a dime. They will just have to hustle and find other work. Improve their nonexistent skill sets, in many cases.

  3. Sounds good to me right bro.

  4. New Jersey deserves everything that happens to it. The voters keep electing Menendez and the worst type of crony politicians possible. Then, we’re supposed to be shocked when Hudson County Machine Bob has a fresh new dye job and is on a beach in PR with a bikini-clad hottie? We’re doomed!

  5. Hey Mr bro I see that you took a break from playing video games in you mother basement to post on the blog.

  6. The Senator having a little cottage cheese on the beach….are we paying for her too…?

  7. Boyd goes undercover !!

  8. Randy Bobby figured he would be on his best behavior…this isn’t the DR, so he could face charges for any hanky panky
