So now your turn, if Paul's first class gets you upset enough to search and post stories for it, does warrens trip concern you one iota?

I searched to see if I could substantiate your claim... and could not.

I easily found that dozens of congresscritters often fly first class on the tax payers' tab... but you only mentioned an unsubstantiated claim of Warren's flight. I found it humorous to substantiate that the poster boy of Libertarians everywhere is a serial first-class airfare abuser.

As for me, I don't want anyone in Congress to fly first class. I think congresscritters should travel business or coach class on the taxpayers' dime. Upgrades should be a personal expense (no, not a campaign fund expense). I also think frequent flyer miles should be forfeited into a common pool for use by military folks and government-related volunteers (Peace Corp, etc).
