The other entity who got us into this financial mess has no problem whatsoever about using the equivalent when necessary or convenient while lecturing others about their insensitivity to the times:
A government plane will ferry Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) back to Washington from his mother’s wake in Ohio in time to vote tonight, courtesy of the White House.
Brown won’t even be leaving until viewing hours end at 8 p.m. He then travels back to Washington for his mother’s interment, vote and fly home for his mother’s funeral tomorrow morning.
Nope, when government decides it must “maximize the time” of it’s members, it pulls out all the stops and, as usual, you pay for it.
What was the line – “as long as you’re taking our money”?
Well, that’s all government does.
Do as I say, not as I do.
Hope and change.
