Oinking at the Trough

Democrats in Washington have become completely oblivious to the fact that our money is not their money.  They're like a bunch of fat, greedy kids in a candy store, charging their gluttony to someone else -- that would be us, the American taxpayers.

Over at NRO, Daniel Foster totes up the expensive goodies that Democrats inserted into the health care bill

And Donald Lambro details more fat larded into the appropriations bill, also passed by Democrats largely on a party line vote.  Remarkably, there is a 12% spending increase -- even as regular Americans remain unemployed and those not supping at the government trough continue to cut back.

It may be that "love means never having to say you're sorry,"  but it's certain that working for the government means never having to live within your means.
