I take it you do not, nor have you ever, traveled on business...try it sometime, then bitch about it
The real problem is government is doing things it should not. Then because they do things they should not do, then they spend money they should not spend.
Tell me why does a government worker need to go to training or a conference? Just have the training in house, same with a conference. Why does the government have to send people to another state or country?
