The current admistration is crumbling, I know. I want to see the other fools follow. Can you believe this administration and CONGRESS? This may have happened two years ago, but it still applys, and gets me mad! I know the have only gotten better at covering up the abuse, They haven't stopped or curtailed it. http://www.senate.gov/~grassley/releases/2002/p02r10-08c.htm For Immediate Release Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2002 Grassley: Military Must Stop Abuses on Taxpayers' Dime WASHINGTON – Sen. Chuck Grassley, ranking member of the Committee on Finance, today urged military leaders to stop employees from using their government credit cards for personal items including jewelry, ball game tickets, and visits to Nevada houses of prostitution. Grassley's comments came after new revelations of abuse from government investigators. ============= It made me think of a statement I heard about the Pentagon spending unlimited amounts of money, without checks and balances and abuse of public tax dollars used to finance the Patriot Act. I have always felt money was spent without checks and balances. This is a small admittance, but I know like this case, our tax dollars aren't getting down to the street or the people. Or as Ronald Reagan said, trickling down to us like they should. The current administrations lack of policy monitoring checks and balances not in place or not used waste our tax dollars. This concerns me too because Congress have all the benefits of free cars, gas, flights and entertainment and fully paid medical without resorting to ( what I term blatant corruption as usual ) ignorance.
