I too, No T, am concerned about the 24billion wasted....If it had been all given as gifts to the non-essentials, I know I would feel better about it.

....sometimes I am really torn in making the statements like I just totally goes against my philosophy of 'gifts are good'. And if these non-essentials can get a few weeks off, even months off, and then get paid for it....then I should just be happy for them in receiving those 'gifts'......and I really should just be putting the blame on those dirty Republicans for that of what many are calling 'wasted'. But it's really's a gift.
