We may need to rethink this whole Congress thing

| politics |

I saw on the news today how Congress has commissioned two gulfstream private jets in the defense budget bill that cost $65 million dollars a piece.

Let’s think about this for a moment. Why in the world does the airforce need two $65 million dollar private jets. They have tons of little planes that can do the same thing right? Well guess who is going to be utilizing these jets? You guessed it, congressmen.

I guess they are too good to fly on a commercial/military flight. It just makes no sense. They have the audacity to sit there and criticize the CEO’s of the auto companies for flying into Washington DC in their private jets but they are doing the same exact thing! Its pure hypocrisy.

I do not think that people in Congress are able to make laws and rules that apply to all of us because even thought they claim to represent the common man, they have no idea what it is like to be a common man. They have private jets, they make tons of money, they live in nice houses, their kids go to private schools, hell they even get to utilize the military health system for free.

This is the exact reason why they are not fit to make a health care policy for America. They get free health care so they have no idea what it is like in the real world.

Time to rethink this whole thing. Is it really the best idea to be wasting this kind of money in the middle of a recession?
