Fiscal cliffs, sequesters, what will the next national dilemma be? Get ready to sacrifice a little more unless you're a lawmaker.
As usual the obvious government waste and political entitlements will continue. Lawmakers will get another undeserved and unearned pay raise. Their free medical coverage for life is safe and secure. No one's going to touch their pensions. The taxpayer will continue to foot the bill for the best and most expensive cuisine at the best restaurants in town for our beloved politicians. The taxpayer will continue to pay for the most expensive luxury vehicles on the market for the political elite and their spouses to use wherever and whenever they please, whether job related or not. Let's not forget the fuel credit cards to fuel them. It wouldn't be complete without expense accounts and taxpayer-paid credit cards, air travel, hotel rooms, office furnishings and upgrades.
This is what they're talking about when a politician talks about public service being rewarding. Every one of them is a disgrace to the office they hold and the people they supposedly serve.
To the local media that expose and report this waste: Keep it up, we never get tired of seeing these overpaid, useless society parasites exposed for what they truly are.
