"It is the ones we send there (to DC) are who are out of touch."

Right! Thanks for clarifying, Curly.

The average person in DC is struggling too. It is the ones we send there are who are out of touch. Mostly the ones who have never been anything but "public servants" for life. Something is wrong with the system. I think perhaps some term limits might help.

This latest inauguration is proof again how very out of touch the people in DC are with the rest of the country.

Many Americans have been out of work, some for months. Many have had trouble staying in their homes. Many have had their unemployment run out. Many have had to go on food stamps for the first time. Many do not have any better prospects yet.

But the President has chosen to be lavish in this second inauguration, instead of leading by example in doing the event in a simpler way.

I guess there is a difference between the taxpayers and the tax-makers & takers.

This whole thing can be summed up in one word...

That's where the majority of the federal tax dollars do get wasted right there in DC!

I just was in Washington DC. I saw a building that was built on Penn. Ave for parade viewing. It was built so the pres. could shake hands with the mayor. Our tour guide told us it cost $150,000 and will be torn down the day after..... We are paying for it. How stupid and what a waste. It has been going on for years and needs to stop.
