Democrats Party With Lobbyists In Puerto Rico During Government Shutdown

More than two dozen Democrats are in Puerto Rico having fun with lobbyists during the government shutdown.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Some 30 Democratic lawmakers left the government shutdown behind Friday on a chartered flight to Puerto Rico for a winter retreat with 109 lobbyists and corporate executives during which they planned to see the hit Broadway show “Hamilton” and attend three parties including one with the show’s cast.

Those attending the Congressional Hispanic Caucus BOLD PAC winter retreat in San Juan planned to meet with key officials to discuss the cleanup after Hurricane Maria at a roundtable Saturday.

Democrats should be working on a plan to compromise with President Trump on the government shutdown but they are too busy partying instead.
