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!
