Americans can't work enough to support all the government elites and the entitled Democrats.

Draining the swamp is only the start. I unfortunately worked as a contractor in the Government for nearly 14 years. I did not ONE TIME waste Tax Payer dollars, and was even scolded numerous times for suggesting that items purchased was. It is the norm. And that is what is wrong with the GS force. Show up on time, answer some emails, go to a meeting, clock out on time and go home. Done. You want to trim the fat? Start with making it more feasible to FIRE GS employee's. That is the number one issue. EVERYONE knows this. The lavish spending on unneeded equipment is astonishing. I won't even comment on travel expenditures.

Not all Govt organizations are the same though, that is for sure. Some are water tight, some just bleed money.

It really is criminal what goes on. $40 breakfast? Sh$t, I was eating leftover subway sandwiches and food from the local grocery store. I would spend $40 for an entire WEEK of eating.

Whatever, Rome is crumbling in on itself. History repeating itself.

if ever a CZAR was needed, it's one to go thru every department, every budget, top to bottom and ferret out all of the waste. And yet it's the one thing you never see being done. Call him the Waste Czar.

" The rest of america would never concieve of a 7 dollar monti cristo sandwich"

Ummmm.... i have a beer and a burg for just under 15$. This evening's meal out will be over 40$ each.

When i travel on business i typically am researching and packing on saturday, flying on Sunday. I am on salary so i don't get paid a cent extra for that time, and in most cases i would MUCH prefer to stay home. To make the task more palitable our boss says we SHOULD go find the best meal in town once each trip. Sometimes we do. Nobody says boo about it.

I can not imagine being a politician, having to hang around with such petty morons, enduring firey blasts being broadcast on TV at great expence to the Tax Payers over a 7 dollar breakfast sandwich. We are 20 TRILLION in debt, we are angry, there are many things that need to be discussed, wars to be waged, wars to be avoided, failed projects that cost us hundreds of billions that need to be fixed or shut down. So my opinion is - Feck you Trey Goudy! Do your fecking job, and stop wasting time and credibility over a fecking 7 dollar samich.

actually he is trying... he even complains about having a hearing concerning this very issue... hearings are ALSO a waste of money, he makes that clear in the video.

but he is but one man surrounded by others that can give a damn... after all, this whole thing really is nothing more than a dog and pony show meant to appease the stupid majority that bother to even watch whats going on...

80% of American are either too busy working and the rest too busy facebooking/ youtubin...

Lunch update: A full sized "Fina" grilled samich, served in a plastic basket with REAL PAPER, an ice tea, WITH LEMON !!! and no coupon! I hope Trey doesn't find out!

The sandwich alone is 11.50$ add in the ice tea and a tip puts me at almost 3 times more sickeningly terrifyingly horrifyingly horrible than the evil ones!!! No human on earth could possibly conceive of such a thing!

For God's sake!! Why!?!? Why didn't i just go to the dumpster out back to see if they threw away a samich from yesterday like Trey does?!?!!

I spent $14.43 for lunch today. And I will sleep just fine tonight.

Spending that kind of money for lunch today, out of my own pocket, makes me a privileged white man with a job.

Truth be told, I spent $29.76, plus a
$6.00 tip for dinner last night. And slept just fine last night too.

Deplorable Me ..

your missing the point of what dowdy was saying... the $7 sandwich in question was charged to the government... rather than the rich GS civilian leeching SOB that should have paid for that out of pocket.

Watch the video again, and listen to the whole thing... about other issues like how they donate money to buy bicycles, but not from their own pockets but rather from operating funds etc...

Breaking News: spaceman spiff seen gorging on lunch sandwich...
...he said it was the $3.98 special and just couldn't stop himself.

It was reported he staggered from the lunch counter after finishing the yuge sandwich and then asked directions to the nearest "Sandwich Anonymous" headquarters to turn himself in.*

...and confirmed by a toy helicopter internet website...

gotta admit though the SOBs that spent $800,000 to check out a site in Las Vegas should be in jail IMO.

I would like to hear more about hundred billion dollar walls, shutting down bummer care, reintroducing tarrifs without fecking everything up, ending hundreds of billions of dollars of illegal spying on americans projects, enforcing sensible banking regulations... ending hundreds of billions in giveaways to countries who openly threaten us...

I do not want to hear about what obama's imaginary sons look like, I do not want to hear bathroom guidance from the White house, I do not want to see republicans pointlessly voting to dump bummer care 50 ****ing times for no fecking reason, and I don't want Trey wasting many thousands of tax dollars a second in TV time jibber jabbering about sandwiches and bicycles.

My point is very simple, and it saddens me that only one person on this board gets it.

Good point. I would like to know a little more about that. Trey would do well to stick to the good points.

Some things are worth fighting about. Some are not. I don't think many folks in DC have the ability to distinguish between the two.

yes, but that is your money and your decision to spend it, it's not some one else tax money you paid out, so with that, why is it that the American citizens even have to pay for those congressmen's breakfast and lunch, I mean like all American citizens>, they got their own pockets
