You may not have any formula to put in your baby’s bottle, but members of the House will never have to worry about empty bottles, thanks to a new perk they get at your expense. The House caterers will now deliver beer, wine, and hard liquor right to your House office and the best part (for them) is that you get to pick up the check for it. You have to know that Nancy Pelosi is in hog heaven.
1) The filibuster is fine. But liquor is quicker.
Fox has learned that lawmakers and aides can now order beer, wine and hard liquor directly to their offices.
This is through the new caterer on the House side of Capitol Hill, Sodexo.

What is the difference between Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi? Joe Biden has had a frontal lobotomy and Nancy Pelosi has a bottle in front of me. This is so much better than going to a bar because they can’t force you to pay for their drinks at a bar. If they had done this a few decades ago, Dean Martin would have run for the House. No longer are the drinks on the House, they are on you.
A “Drinks on Demand” page on Sodexo’s House of Representatives site offers “bulk orders” for drinks “by the case.”
Pelosi is opening a liquor store in the House where Members can buy alcohol with their taxpayer-funded MRAs.

The good news is that the most expensive wine you can order is just $25 dollars a bottle but beer cab run from $25 to $50 dollars a case. Your representative will be like Perry Mason. Neither one will ever lose a case. I’ll drink to that. But, this is actually so much better for the Democrats than it is for the Republicans because it will be easier to tell when a Republican is drunk because the way Democrats pass billsthey appear to be drunk all the time.
“Will there be some sort of tracker for the total amount purchased by each office?” asked one Twitter user. “At least for those who pay with campaign money?”
House rules clearly state that, while members and their staff “may be reimbursed for food and non-alcoholic beverage expenses incurred while participating in virtual legislative planning sessions,” they can’t bill Uncle Sam for booze.
“Members and employees may not be reimbursed for the cost of alcoholic beverages,” it states.
But as a cynic might expect, lawmakers may use campaign funds for late-night libations. One Twitter user speculated the newest Washington wet bar may’ve been arranged by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who owns a vineyard in St. Helena, California, and is known to enjoy raising a glass from time to time.
