When I first looked into this a few days ago, in the middle of the 24-hour outrage over this, I couldn’t find anything. I made a meme about it where I very conservatively estimated the cost couldn’t possibly be over $10,000.

Now it looks like Snopes found the answer. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/impeachment-pens-15k-dollars/

The total cost of the impeachment pens was $450.

OP is flat out wrong and my initial guesstimate was way too overbudget.

As much as I personally like the Mikkelsons, they are not unbiased.

Got another source?

Snopes got that information directly from speaking with Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff.

https://magazine.promomarketing.com/article/nancy-pelosis-impeachment-pens-did-not-cost-15000/

And these guys talked to the pen supplier, Garland Writing Instruments in Rhode Island, who reported they cost about $20 a piece.

Uh huh. And Pelosi's deputy chief-of-staff has a vested interest in telling the truth, does he...?

What he has to say about it is more reliable source than whatever this Twitter guy threw out without any backing evidence at all

Does this Twitter guy have an agenda of his own? Clearly. It’s all over his entire tweet

And again: Pen manufacturer. $20. This issue is dead as a doornail unless you have something solid to counter it.

I don't care about the "twitter guy." That's the difference between you and me. I don't accept someone's word just because they say it. You do, and have, and will almost certainly continue to do so in the future, for no reason other than they're on what you perceive to be "your side."

And that's where you fail.

As for Pelosi...she ought not have spent a dime on special "impeachment pens." It's just more of the same shameful behavior she's infamous for.

trump also uses sharpies to alter weather maps. $ 2 goes a long way.

How is that a deflection, the meme mentions trump and sharpies, I was just expanding on the convenience of sharpies. Heh heh.

Hell no. You're comic gold. I would hate to lose you because your machismo is bigger than your brain.

But I'm saving all these memes, and will revisit them in November.

You so funny with your projections. Why would I "slink away" if Trump loses...? Because that's what you think you should do if he wins.
0 ups, 4m
You keep using that word, I don't think it means what you think it means. If he wins I wont slink, I'll just hit delete, no pomp and circumstance, just a red button delete.

$15,000 pens? Hardly. More like under $15 each.You're falling for fake news.

The pens are not $15000 worth. they are not engraved they are embossed, they are 90% plastic.
Her office reckoned $15 each. Just go look at a Stationary supplier, they shouldn't have cost more than a few dollars which makes me doubt the $15 quoted from her office and I think they just said that too attempt to shut all the talk down. The platters if real are more of a waste especially if Nancy is taking them home with her.

Not what I heard, I heard the gold was smelted from Capt. Cooks hidden treasures found on Oak Island, the ball in the ball point is made from blood diamonds, the casing is from recycled straws, the ink is actually tears from children and eye of newt, while the signitures were done by a blind Tibetten monk on the peaks of the Himmaleyas. That's why she waited so long to send the articals, that and Kevin Costner reprised his role as the Postman to deliver said pens. THAT'S what your paying for. Totally worth it

That sums it up. I cant believe that it has continued but also that someone managed to find the most ridiculous of all the claims. Maybe it's just trolling but i dont think so because it's only a few of us pointing out the reality. I dont get how they cant see they are plastic pens.
You Should try make a meme around that list. I know it would be long but worth it. Maybe a Mastercard style, Starting with" Smelting gold from captain cooks treasure $8000" etc and so on. So that it doesn't get tiring.
