Funny how this wasteful spending coincides with the advent of the income tax, begun as a way to pay for the WNO, discontinued after 1872, revived in 1895 until declared unconstitutional. Enter the 16th amendment and things wet down hill from there. As long as there was a source of, someone else's money, that politicians could use to buy votes, there is no restraint on use/misuse of the fruits of the citizen's labor.
