I just saw this graphic over at Mike Miles’s place:
But Congress, which is 95% recidivists and 50% millionaires, would balk at both propositions. For one thing, the swollen Defense Department appropriations are a fertile source of pork for their constituents. For another, it’s a safe bet that a lot of them are in on the grift. How else does one get to be a millionaire while laboring on salary?
Don’t expect the people who benefit most richly from an abuse to do anything to remedy it.
