Ms. Wasserman Shultz says she is a “middle class” American but according to some interesting information given to the Shark Tank she is as “middle class” as Mitt Romney. I know myself, and children, and of course my lovely lifetime husband could never afford to go on a luxury cruise, having the best “suite” the cruise line has to offer. We must pay for our cars, our house, our utility bills, and of course, the ever growing gas bills to just have enough left over to pay the damn tax man at the end of the year. So how does she do it? The way all the slimy leftist liars in the progressive party who claim the Democrat name do it; they lie, cheat and steal, and then they have their ideological whores in the media cover for them. So Debbie did indeed do the Royal Caribbean cruise of a lifetime, and I am sure she is going to be sore for it. Debbie also does double residency, both in Florida and New Hampshire, along with her abode in DC, for when she supposedly does the peoples’ business. I don’t know any “middle class” Americans who can afford all these residences unless they’re part of the much more affluent class.
Now don’t get me wrong, I would love to do all that Ms. Wasserman-Shultz does and would love to have, and make the money she does, I just don’t envy her for it or demand it from her. Ms Wasserman-Shultz is in the 1%, and like the majority of the progressive 1%, calls for taxing more – but the middle class knows what that means, We The People will pay the bulk of it. Debbie and her fellow one-percenters won’t be paying it, they have the money to pay people to find places to HIDE their $$$. If I did, I certainly would take advantage of it, as I am sure Gov. Romney has, as Debbie does and as all of the one-percenters do. I just want those cretins who call for increased taxes in order to give their buddies payouts to get the hell out of my way of getting to their “station” in life Debbie Is Doing America And The Screwing Couldn’t Be Worse, If She Tried Harder
Wasserman Schultz has been relentless in her mocking of Romney’s offshore holdings and tax records even after it was disclosed that she had her own offshore investments including a Swiss Bank Account and holdings in foreign drug companies and the State Bank of India. In a desperate attempt to distract from the president’s record of failure, Wasserman Schultz has tried to paint Romney as a “one percenter” who outsources American jobs overseas and is disconnected from the American people. Wasserman Schultz has even boldly claimed that “I’m a Middle Class American.”
But now the Shark Tank has come into possession of information that has never been publicly disclosed which completely undermines Wasserman Schultz’ credibility as it pertains to her calls for transparency or the claim that she qualifies as “middle class.”
Speaking of “offshore” interests, on 6/9/12 Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz took a one-week cruise aboard the Royal Caribbean ‘Oasis of the Seas’ luxury liner to the Western Caribbean, embarking from Port Everglades, Florida. According to an individual that we’ll simply identify as “Bruce from Weston” who was also on the same cruise along with his family, Wasserman Schultz took the cruise with her husband Steve and three children along with Broward County School Board member Robin Bartleman and her family.
“Bruce” informed us that his own son became friendly with one of Wasserman Schultz’ daughters while the kids were playing in one of the ship’s designated play areas. Wasserman Schultz’ daughter then invited him up to the suite that her family was staying in.
While it shouldn’t be remarkable that Wasserman Schultz and her family took a cruise, the extent of her accommodations are most certainly eye-popping.
The two-story, spiral-staircase ‘Loft Suite’ that Bruce’s son was invited up to was on the 17th deck that overlooked the rear of the ship. According to Royal Caribbean, a 7-Day Cruise for 4 guests ranges from $15,264.08 in the Crown Loft Suite, to $19,364.08 in the Sky Loft Suite. These two types of suites are only found on the 17th Deck. (Source-Royal Caribbean)
So the question begs- how can someone earning a living on a congressional salary afford such a lavish suite on a cruise ship- especially someone who so adamantly claims she is “middle class?” Also take into consideration that Wasserman Schultz’ family was a party of five on board the cruise ship, meaning that they would have been charged an additional $1615 for the fifth guest, bringing the cost of the cruise somewhere between $16,879.08 and $20,979.08.
After the Shark Tank contacted and spoke to a Royal Caribbean sales agent, we were informed that as per maritime laws enforced by the U.S. Coast Guard, families of five or more that wish to reside in a ‘Loft Suite’ are mandated to upgrade to the Royal Loft Suite as per safety regulations. That brings a one-week excursion in a Royal Loft Suite aboard the Oasis of the Seas for a family of five to $33,151.65, taxes included.(Source- Royal Caribbean Email)
Debbie Wasserman Schultz may be a Member of Congress and the Chair of the DNC, but she’s not the Sultan of Brunei.
