Incredibly, there will be some so-called Americans who will feel sympathy for these "people". Why would any self-respecting person allow themselves to be quoted in a published article about this subject?
When times get tough, you make adjustments, work a little harder, and travel less. It's different if you're getting fukced over by an insurance company, a lawyer or the corporation you work for that's moving your job to India.
Yeah, all that money they have to pay in taxes is always used for good purposes, never any scams, never any misuse of those public funds, never any kick-backs to the Senators and Congresspeople who pass the budget and tax laws, like this:
Senator's husband cashes in on crisis
Feinstein sought $25 billion for agency that awarded contract to spouse
By Chuck Neubauer THE WASHINGTON TIMES | Tuesday, April 21, 2009
On the day the new Congress convened this year, Sen. Dianne Feinstein introduced legislation to route $25 billion in taxpayer money to a government agency that had just awarded her husband's real estate firm a lucrative contract to sell foreclosed properties at compensation rates higher than the industry norms.
Mrs. Feinstein's intervention on behalf of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. was unusual: the California Democrat isn't a member of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs with jurisdiction over FDIC; and the agency is supposed to operate from money it raises from bank-paid insurance payments - not direct federal dollars.
Documents reviewed by The Washington Times show Mrs. Feinstein first offered Oct. 30 to help the FDIC secure money for its effort to stem the rise of home foreclosures. Her letter was sent just days before the agency determined that CB Richard Ellis Group (CBRE) - the commercial real estate firm that her husband Richard Blum heads as board chairman - had won the competitive bidding for a contract to sell foreclosed properties that FDIC had inherited from failed banks. http://washingtontimes.com/news/2009...-in-on-crisis/
Next you'll have some inside dope on a nice bridge to buy down in Brooklyn.

Don't know if this is the first dirty deal by Feinstein. What a sleazeball, though. This seems to be the norm in Congress, the State House, and City Hall since the country started. I love when the Dems and Repubs pick one side to highlight and then someone else from the other side counters with a "Well, your guy did this last year" comment...Cracks me up. It's a disease in the DNA of politicians.
