    Hard times hit our fellow Americans but not our politicians.


    Besides rooms for sleeping, the 12 members of the House of Representatives rented their hotel's fireplace-equipped presidential suite and two adjacent rooms.

    The hotel cleared out the beds and in their place set up a bar, a snack room and office space. The three extra rooms -- stocked with liquor, Coors beer, chips and salsa, sandwiches, Mrs. Fields cookies and York Peppermint Patties -- cost a total of about $1,500 a night. They were rented for five nights.

    I could tolerate that a little better if they'd at least got decent beer.

    Nothing here surprises me!
    Politicians serve only themselves and those of like minds and interest – greed!!!!!
    The welfare of the populace is the last thing they care about.
