Liberals Can't Stop Spending Money

Liberal politicians are addicted to spending money like someone addicted to meth.

From AllGov, Congressional Foreign Travel Triples since 2001:

    Senator Daniel Inouye (D-HI) led a small group of senators and their spouses on a four-day trip to see the Paris Air Show in France. They used an Air Force plane that costs $5,700 an hour to operate and stayed at the Intercontinental Paris Le Grand Hotel, where rooms go for $460 a night.

    [...]

    Nancy Pelosi and seven Democratic lawmakers prepared for their one-day visit to Afghanistan by first staying eight days in Italy. Cost: $57,697.

    [...]

    Congressman Brian Baird (D-WA) and four other lawmakers took their families last summer to the Galápagos Islands. They spent $22,000 in an effort to learn about global warming.

Oh, the story lists a Republican too. Congressman Bud Cramer (R-AL) who spent a paltry $5,700 dollars for two weeks in Europe on “government business.”

They just can't stop, can they? We need a government program that you and I will run to help them stop their addictive spending of other people's money.
