Possible. Or, perhaps, the government doesn't really care if there is fraud and abuse. The more services and money provided, the more federal employees.

The more money in budgets, the more money that can buy votes and be skimmed from the top. The mafia has done it in Vegas for years.

No its the Dems that want that since the Reps are trying to clean up the Dems mess. The Dems are trying their best to GIVE AMERICA AWAY. You can only tax the tax payers so much and give freebees away but there is an end to that rainbow. Do you realize we are in debt up over our eyes? Do you realize how much money is going over seas over a billion to Egypt? Get real and used your head and think where America is going now. Right down the toilet to be a third world country. Obama's dream.

The Senate is just a terrible legislative body. The only way they could possibly be worse is to bring back Teddy. Sessions is the only one that is a straight shooter. The rest of them are all screwed up so it really doesn't matter what screwball #1 says to screwball #2.

Ted Kennedy did more for the American people during his time in the Senate than any other members of his family combined, and yet he's reviled...while defense department shill and right wing partisan liar Sessions gets CREDIT for his obstruction?

You have to be a Republican. No one else could say something that foolish.

The big illegal alien mess we have today is largely due to Teddy. He singlehandedly
put this country on track to become a banana republic. Most superrich people love slaves and servants. Add to that the fact that Teddy was an idiot and a womanizer who had absolutely no class and you can see why his positions were so destructive to this country.

That he liked to drink and was heterosexual I'll grant you..don't know that's cause to hate the man.

Kopechne was not a "little girl," no evidence she was pregnant, and her death was a tragic accident. He made stupid mistakes and tried to cover up his role...that doesn't make you a murderer.

It makes YOu a liar, though.

I'm talking about either the dumbest Kennedy or the worst Senator in the last 40 years. Without his families money and connections, a dope like Teddy could never have gotten elected. Too bad he couldn't take all the problems he created with him.

Silly, nonsensical claim, Brenda. Argue policies, don't make stupid and offensive comments about the President.
