Anybody remember last year when the big three auto execs flew into DC to beg for tax payer money? Anyone remember how congress rediculed them for flying on private jets? Well in case you don't, here's a video to remind you:
Apparently our lawmakers suscribe to the "Do as I say, not as I do" theory of fiscal responsibility. They have made appropriations to buy three new private jets, when the air force only asked for one. Here's the LA Times article. The government is over 3 trillion dollars in debt, and we're buying extra private jets. One the bright side, looks like those jets will be put to good use!
I'm glad our government is so open and responsible. It makes me want to give them more of my hard earned money, heck they are doing such a good job lets let them run our health care!
If we don't trust our politicians with our money, why should we trust them with our health care? Think about that, then write your lawmakers and tell them what you think!
