PUNISHED?!?!?!?! Sh1t. In THIS Administration the bastids get PROMOTED......

As far as CONGRESS goes... THOSE azzwipes see taxpayers as THEIR personal credit cards for pet projects back home to win re-elections. Less than 5 % of the 535 members of Congress have shown any responsibility OR intent to be frugal with money THEY legislatively extort from us(US)........

The ONLY thing that matters in Washington today is Big Campaign Donations. Just follow the money at Opensecrets.org , and then see how these clowns vote at VoteSmart.org . One hand washes the other.

Anyone who thinks that Either Party has the average persons best interests at heart is living in a fantasy world

Final answer..."We the People/Taxpayers do!" The big ugly, not very well-kept secret is that both DEMs AND REPs lack the spinal fortitude to rein in spending, for fear of losing their own cushy, privledged, royal lifestyles. What other job(s) lets you show up for work 25% of the time, accomplish virtually nothing, have almost no risk of getting fired and keep getting paid?

How much money is being spent now to ensure equal benefits to the gay and lesbian life style and how much are we saving by taking the bible out of our schools and God Bless America off our currency? The dollar ain't worth a dam anyhow, but we can still spend heavily when it's OPM.
Ummmm.... WTF are you talking about? Gays? Lesbians? That has DICK to about the topic....

What happens to us as tax dollars is figuratively similar to what happens in the Middle East, and I am not making light of that. Women get horrible crimes committed against them, then they get punished for it happening to them. I know, what we face is nothing in comparison, but the dynamics are remotely similar. We get screwed, then get punished for getting screwed.

okimar your so right!

seagate you nailed our current congress
did you two see the thread I started ;
"Time to Fix Government"
this is the only way we'll get it done!
If he's a taxpayer and wants to make his point, he's got the right to do it,
and I agree with his thinking. Special interest groups are taking over this country and have more influence than the ones that are paying for all of it.
It's time it stopped and the money was spent on the ones that earned it
and benefited from it's expenditures!
No more anything until we've been reimbursed for all our suffering enduring with government!

And Chilli is always on the 'mark' when it comes to common sense and practicality!

$6 Billion Goes Missing

By Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon

The State Department misplaced and lost some $6 billion due to the improper filing of contracts during the past six years, mainly during the tenure of former Secretary of State Hilary Clinton, according to a newly released Inspector General report.

The $6 billion in unaccounted funds poses a “significant financial risk and demonstrates a lack of internal control over the Department’s contract actions,” according to the report.

The alert, originally sent on March 20 and just released this week, warns that the missing contracting funds “could expose the department to substantial financial losses.”

The report centered on State Department contracts worth “more than $6 billion in which contract files were incomplete or could not be located at all,” according to the alert.
