Just when you thought that those thieving, lying, cheating politicians on capitol hill couldn’t surprise you any more than they already have with their bloated stimulus packages and righteous indignation at corporate compensation and big money corporate retreats to fancy resorts they come along and do it to us again. This time in the form of their own high dollar luxury resort retreats.

That’s right the Democratic Party, the party of change, the party of transparency is taking an all expenses paid party caucus retreat to Kingsmill Resort and Spa in historic Williamsburg, VA. That’s right it is apparently time for them to come together, regroup, and strategize on how best to run the country and ram home their un-stimulating stimulus package and the socialist policies they so desperately wish to share with us the tax payers.

The best part of this whole retreat for them is that it won’t cost them a dime, because we the tax payers are going to foot the bill for them. That’s right the tax payer is paying for this unnecessary junket to one of Virginias most attractive spots. While they are there we will also be paying for their rounds of golf at the local PGA course, massages, and four star dining experiences during their stay. All of that is in addition to their transportation to and from Kingsmill as well as the luxury suites they have obtained for the duration of their stay there.

However the Dems are not the only ones guilty of this sin at the tax payer’s expense. The Republicans did the same thing at the Homestead Resort in Virginia for their annual retreat. The Republicans are supposed to be the party of smaller government, low taxes, and conservative spending, yet they go off and do this retreat with the very tax money of ours that they are supposed to be protecting.

What exactly do these retreats have to do with saving the economy, creating jobs, and lessening the debt on the tax payer’s of this nation? I’ll tell you what these retreats have to do with all of that, NOT DAMN THING!!!!!

They do not create anything but tax payer debt so each political party can enjoy the good ole boy’s club for their respective party’s. Even Barack is going to show up at the Kingsmill retreat for the Democrats, which makes me wonder when exactly we are going to see all of this change in government that we have been hearing about. It looks like business as usual to me.

These party’s are running off and doing all of this nonsense while at the same time attacking AIG for their corporate sponsored retreats, Detroit for their corporate jets, and CEO and executive salaries in companies that have taken tarp and bailout funds, what a bunch of hypocrites.

These idiots whom we the people have elected to represent us are acting just like the very businesses and individuals that they attack for behaving the same way. I guess we the tax payers have created an entitlement program for Capitol Hill criminals…..oops I mean politician’s.

Well my friends that is my rant for today I hope you all have a great day, see you all later, CIAO4NOW!!!!!


Not only are they taking advantage of the taxpayers with their caucus retreats, but they do so with their constant pay increases and their health benefits to. They are not only over payed in my opinion, but we keep them to healthy so they can screw all of us. If I had their pay and benefits package I wouldn't complain about anything.

This is definitely ridiculous. You know, I wonder...if becoming a congressman required going without pay and doing it as only a duty to the many would actually still keep the job???
