Commentary

May 18, 2015

San Diego isn't the only one with a team of Chargers! The government has professional ones too. Hi, I'm Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council in Washington, D.C. If you thought your credit card bill was bad, you should see Uncle Sam's. The Coast Guard kept its bean counters busy when members charged more than $12,000 at one coffee shop. At the Department of Labor, employees shaved plenty off the bottom line with nearly $100,000 racked up in haircuts, clothing, and personal cell phones. The Pentagon took a gamble on its credit, with civilian and military employees charging more than a million dollars at casinos and strip clubs. And although workers are paying back their tab, it's a huge misuse of government credit. A whopping 364 employees are in trouble, and most are going through "counseling" for their card abuse. But most taxpayers want to know, when is the government going to do the same? People are frustrated with the double standard-and I can think of 18 trillion reasons why!
