(Molly Bruns, Headline USA) Members of the House of Representatives can now order alcoholic beverages for delivery to their offices, thanks to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., who has been alleged in the past to enjoy adult beverages to lubricating excess.
Available between the hours of 8 a.m. and 4 p.m., the delivery service dubbed “House Drinks” is located in the Rayburn House Office Building, according to the Gateway Pundit.
A sign posted in the office building says the service offers “6 Packs & More,” and has a QR code which can be scanned for “drinks on demand.”

The sign also requests that thirsty representatives and their publicly funded staff must be prepared to show valid identification in order to get an alcoholic beverage, a requirement which does not carry to the voting polls in Democrat states.

House members are allowed to purchase alcohol with their MRA’s, which, like nearly everything else on Capitol Hill, is funded by taxpayers.
Republicans came out against this strongly, criticizing Pelosi for increasing amenities for public servants during at time when food prices are skyrocketing and there is a dangerous shortage of baby formula.
Whoa wait a minute when I worked for the government we couldn’t use our daily Per diem for alcohol because if we did we would be fired. Wow times have changed and this is crazy.

This was announced via an administrative statement from Pelosi’s staff. Another perk mentioned in the announcement is a fully paid gym membership for all House members.
