Congress Flies in Private Jets

Please read this Wall Street Journal article about how Congress has appropriated $550 million to buy some new private jets. And not even simple jets,  but the highest end of private: Boeing 737 business jets and Gulfstream Vs. This was an appropriation beyond what the Defense Department asked for. And this is the same Congress that lambasted (rightly) banks and car companies for flying private. This is the hypocrisy that makes citizens hate Congress. Let’s hope that during the August recess our representatives get a full dose of voter anger during town halls and constituent meetings.
