Givers and Takers in America


DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) - The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation will donate $10 billion over the next decade to research new vaccines and bring them to the world's poorest countries, the Microsoft co-founder and his wife said Friday.


Judicial Watch said the newly obtained 2,000 pages of documentation show (United States House of Representatives Speaker, Nancy) Pelosi's military travel cost the U.S. Air Force $2,100,744.59 over two years – including $101,429.14 for in-flight expenses, including food and alcohol.

Coincidentally--The Pelosis reportedly own millions of dollars in stock in Microsoft.

**Pelosi is a multi-millionaire. Mostly on the strength of her husband's portfolio of commercial real estate, the Pelosis' net worth is at least $25M and may be as high at $92M -- financial disclosure forms for federal officials report assets and liabilities in broad ranges, so the figure is difficult to pinpoint.
