DoD braces for a fight with Pelosi

I have spent half my life on business trips. They are not a lot of fun. I would not ask my adult children to tag along. They have jobs and their own lives to live.

Apparently Congressional business trips and children of congresspersons are different.

Pentagon officials are bracing for a fight with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) over her desire to allow lawmakers’ adult children to tag along on taxpayer-funded travel for free.

Well, if you are as wealthy as Ms. Pelosi, I suppose your adult children don't have to keep their noses to the grindstone. All they need to do is inherit.
