How many dollars are we going to waste on "global warming" before we realize that there is not a darn thing that man could do, even if he tried, to change the global climate.
Here is one more item to add to the list. 10 senators, their spouses and their staff went out on a "fact finding mission" to Hawaii, Australia and Antarctica. This little 11-day joy ride only cost you and me $500,000. I bet snorkeling the Great Barrier Reef and seeing the penguins was a freakin' blast.
Since 2007, the Democrat-controlled Congress has torpedoed our economy. The last 6 months of ridiculous spending has only made it worse. This is the type of wasteful spending that must be stopped now! Congress critters are NOT royalty. They are public servants, or at least they are supposed to be public servants. It is infuriating to read about this in a time when so many Americans are out of work and struggling to make a living.
I can't lay all the blame on Democrats for this. This was a bipartisan boondoggle with 6 Dems and 4 Republicans. They all should be forced to pay this back and be kicked out of Washington for good!
