Public Outrage Of The Day

The joke's on the TreasurySometimes we think we don’t have the power to stop an out-of-control government and its irresponsible spending. Then again, sometimes we have more power than we think…

The Treasury Department is scrapping plans to hire a cartoonist to lighten the mood of its employees who manage the nation’s $1.2 trillion debt, after a senator questioned its merits. The cartoonist would have been hired by Treasury’s Bureau of Public Debt, which accounts for borrowed federal spending, at a time Congress is embroiled in a debate about increased government spending.

“Our training staff felt that at a time when employees are working extra hours, it might have been helpful,” said Kim Treat, a spokesman for the bureau. But the effort was canceled because it had become “more of a distraction than an opportunity,” he said.

Nice spin, but once the “job description” was unveiled, the American people had a collective WTF moment, heard loud and clear by the elected.

    Too bad there hasn’t been a very loud, very clear, very collective WTF moment at the ridiculous Porkulus, Cape and Trade and coming Healthcare theft of Trillions of dollars as well as the gov’t takeover of private industry. I just wish the people of this Nation had the same common sense, sense of duty and patriotism that our people did over 200 years ago when the British pulled their tea tax stunt…..which was NOTHING compared to what is happening today. Our Founding Fathers must be turning over in their graves.
