Congressional Hypocrisy - Synonymous Terms
If the U.S. Congress applied the same accounting standards to itself
that it is applying to the Enrons and Global Crossings of the world,
they would be locking themselves up in jail for fraud. These same politicians
routinely raid the Social Security fund, the transportation tax fund,
and scores of other funds to pay for their pet projects and pander to
their voting core groups. They meet in their sacred chambers and fetter
away taxpayer money, then grandstand in front of TV cameras to denounce
the latest breaking corporate scandal and vow to see justice done. Remember,
this is the same bunch that cooked the books and told us we had a balanced
budget in the 1990s, while increasing the national debt by $500 billion
US. The hypocrisy is astounding!
