When it comes to our ‘public servants’ spending taxpayers money, very few can resist, and when it comes to getting their hands on taxpayers cash, it seems our public servants just can’t help themselves. They’ve got to spend it on parties and vacations, and celebrate all their birthdays!
When Nancy Pelosi wanted her own private jet to take her back and forth from Washington D.C., to California, every week, stocked with a full liquor cabinet and chocolate covered strawberries, she got it.
When Leon Panetta wanted to go back to his walnut farm in California every weekend, he costs the taxpayers around $860,000, due to his special needs for a big plane. He said he needed to get back to his walnut farm because it’s important “just to get your mind straight and your perspective straight.” He got it.
(What? There are no walnuts in D.C.? )
When the Secret Service had to order up 21 prostitutes for their party in Cartagena, Columbia….they got it. After all, they are probably tired of watching the “President” and his family getting to have all that fun all over the world. Maybe they figured it was their turn to relax.
When the GSA was found making a video about their expensive trip to Las Vegas…they got…brought before Congress. What?
“WASHINGTON (AP) — General Services Administration witnesses came under sharp criticism from Congress for a second day on Tuesday, as lawmakers expressed outrage over junkets, bonuses and parties paid for by taxpayers. Questioning ranged beyond the $823,000 paid for a Las Vegas conference in October 2010, to a culture of the nation’s government real estate agency playing fast and loose with taxpayer money.
Family members often were taken along, and in an email exchange between GSA regional executive Jeffrey Neely and his wife last November, they wrote of a planned trip turning into a birthday celebration. The 17-day trip took place last February to Hawaii, Guam and Saipan. Neely – who was placed on administrative leave – wrote his wife:”Rough schedule per our conversation. Guess this’ll be your birthday present?”
Nobody Wants to know: Where’s MY birthday present?
Why is the GSA being singled out? Obama and his wife have wasted more of the taxpayer’s money on their own personal pleasure than any past President in American’s history. Aren’t they ”public servants”? They even went so far as to give their dog his own private jet. Michelle likes to take her own vacations. …on her own personal plane. With 27 people just to dress her.
Can you think of any two public servants who waste more?
Now, we remember Hillary going to Africa with Chelsea, and Laura Bush made a few trips of her own, but is this all really necessary? What are we paying the ambassadors for?
It’s gotta be good to be a ‘public servant’ these days. If anyone cared to check into the many “vacations” held in Las Vegas and Hawaii for the Post Office employees, or state employees, or for that matter, any bureaucracy in the overstuffed turkey called our government, you would find billions of dollars wasted on parties and vacations,( and big expensive offices) all paid by the taxpayer, many of whom can only dream of going to Hawaii.
This is nothing new. What is new is that Congress is looking into it.
Like good politicians, they had to pretend they are mad, because—
IT’S AN ELECTION YEAR!
Even Obama, the one who parties harder than anyone, had to come out and say he would be angry if it was found out his Secret Service had not paid the prostitutes in Columbia. (Did I get that right?)
And Nobody believes that Obama is mad. Obama believes, like most “government servants,” no matter what the cost, they all feel they deserve to party on the taxpayer’s money, because it’s a once in a lifetime piggy bank of free cash that they (and he) would feel stupid not to take advantage of.
Is it any wonder they all like to brag about it?
The only solution for the nobodies working hard while the govenment employees celebrate their birthdays with thousand dollar lush vacations is: Everybody stop paying taxes.
(Okay, I have no clue)
