Let me get this straight: $621 million divided by 580,000 thousand square feet equals $1,070.68 per square foot to build the Capitol Visitor Center in Washington (12/26, A-1). This is a gross waste of taxpayer money.
How much was used from contractors who made political contributions to members of Congress? Again, the people of America got ripped off by the bailouts of Wall Street, the auto industry and banks, and pork.
Wake up, America. Spending is out of control, and you and I are suffering the most.
