Congress Commits Employee Theft

The Big Joke was on US Taxpayers on Friday, as Stephen Colbert took his comedy routine to the US Capitol. During a time when the average Joe and Jane USAmerican citizen is struggling to put bread on the table – Team Pelosi elected to waste an expensive Congressional  hearing as a venue for Colbert to perform his comedy routine. Stupid is as Stupid does!  From the estimates I have heard, basically -we the taxpayers- just paid over $120,000 for a congressional hearing, so that Colbert could sharpen his political satire routine. Although I am not a regular watcher of the Colbert show – most of his routines I have viewed were very funny. It is also hardly a secret that Democrat and Republican legislators ineptness have made the  US Congress into a comedy club – posing as a legislative body. And though the performance evidently created a thrill up Nancy Pelosi’s leg, the US Congress is still not the right venue for a Colbert routine. The event was little more than employee theft by members of the Team Pelosi Congress. In the business world – people in charge would be fired for this flagrant waste of company resources.
