Government bureaucrats are using our tax money to live it up, setting up conferences in exotic locales like Hawaii and Vegas. It's time to end all the travel. These overpaid government employees have meeting rooms where they work in DC or Cleveland or Baltimore. There is no reason for $825,000 bill for hotels, flights, meals, or “momentos to remember the trip.” There is no reason for $40,000 bills for top managers to “scout” the site or bill for spouses to attend.
Remember these government bureaucrats are the same ones that have spent us into a more than $100 Trillion national debt that is the greatest threat to our national security and solvency. They are the same ones owed over $5 Trillion in unfunded federal pension obligations and about $3 Trillion more for unfunded pensions on the state level.
They are wasting our money by the billions. All this while you and I have to work until the day we die to pay for their lavish salaries for 20 years...and then pay their bloated pensions, and free healthcare for life for NOT working for the next 40 years.
The solution is simple. Investigate every level of government. You'll find massive over-spending. Then fire them all.
Now to the Secret Service Scandal. Taxpayers should cheer the agents in the Columbian prostitution scandal. Heck we should throw them a parade. Don’t fire them. Put those agents in charge of our government. They did two things right that should be taught to every government employee.First, they used their own money. Glory Hallelujah! Obama spends taxpayer money by the hundreds of millions for his lavish family vacations. And of course, not only has Obama spent every cent of taxpayer money on his personal trips, he’s added over $5 Trillion in new debt for our children and grandchildren to pay. Compared to Obama these Secret Service agents should get commendations for enjoying their vices with their own money. How refreshing!
Second, and here's the truly amazing lesson for all government bureaucrats- the Secret Service agents actually tried to save money. These skinflint agents that promised the Columbian hooker $800 and then tried to give her $30 should be commended for their efficiency. They have a talent that needs to be taught to all levels of government. U.S. taxpayers should pay them to teach other government employees how to negotiate and save money. Then, when they return from these seminars across the USA, put them in charge of the GSA. They have the kind of attitude and skills that just might save America from bankruptcy.
