I would only add that these Washington DC junkets along with excess amounts of the 3 Bs (Booze, Broads, and Bucks) have long been ingrained as institutional perks for both parties. It is a bi-partisan phenomenon commonly seen among all government decision makers & federal money allocators.


Knowing the difference between “honest graft” and the other kind, as well as just “seeing your opportunities and taking them” is as old a George Washington Plunkitt of Tammany Hall fame. Being an elected representative to the power elite class these days means never having to say you are sorry...don’t you know?


Just remember, we the people elected and oftentimes reelected many of these scoundrels. It follows that we may not get the best government, but we certainly get the one we most deserve.
