We have to look at politicians as regular job-holders who have a certain budget to spend. That budget includes their paid time on the job description. If we can take a Boeing to task for paying another government for corruption, we should take our government to task for its own corruption. How do we prioritize which action to audit? We look at the dollar amount. All dollars wasted are being taken from the plate of every fifth child in America who, the government officially acknowledges, goes to bed homeless or/and hungry.
