How Washington DC is BOOMING with your tax dollars
 
I watched this on Friday night and even though I've lived here since 2007, the amount of largess in this area is mind boggling. :shake:

Taxpayers should revolt!

I see 2-3 Maseratis EVERY week and a Lambo at least 1-2x's a month.

Just about everyone you meet there is an attorney it seems like.

Yes, this has been written about elsewhere, for awhile. It's high time it was on a ms media site for a change. It's the political classes that are enriching themselves and getting wealthy off govt—'er the U.S. taxpayers. That's you and I. This includes certain corps that are connected to govt for increasing their market shares.

Well you've never seen a congressman leave a high govt office without being millions of dollars richer than from the time they stepped through the door on day 1.

They're essentially allowed to insider-trade on the stock market and it's not illegal. It's "unethical" which is a word that really doesn't mean shit to them, but it's not illegal.
