Our congresscritters don't care, since it's not their money to waste. If this keeps up, there will come a time that their grandchildren and great grandchildren will suffer because of what they are doing today. They are like children who can't think beyond the next election.

If that was the truth, then, why in the heck can't they see where they are going wrong? Besides, they had to have spent billions keeping people out of public areas.

Might be a good time to invest in some hard assets...
