Why would American taxpayers be cynical? We pay the salaries, perks, pensions, entertain expenses of these nitwits in Washington. We foot the bill for their lousy, wasteful, bloated, overlapping and ineffective programs! Because the criminal Senate refuses to write a budget, Obama's trillion dollar stimulus became the baseline spending under the continuing resolutions. Ba$tards$! Thieves! Incompetents! Con Men! Ham actors! Cowards! No, I'm not cynical! I'm FURIOUS! There is NO accountability! Half of our politicians should be in JAIL for their malfeasance, dereliction of duty, betrayal of the public trust..... !!!! What's 100 politicians at the bottom of the ocean? A great start!
