    ...and think about how much good could have been done if that money was put towards reducing the deficit or paying off our debt. Instead, billions, wasted.....for what? To be exactly where we were 4 years ago.

    The priorities in this country are so far out of whack it is scary.

    The media companies and their employees loved it, certainly.

    I read somewhere it kept the USPS solvent for another couple of months.

    Yeah no shit. No need. If Hillary isn't destroyed by the Libya scandal and Obama doesn't throw her under the bus, she will be the next POTUS. She has at least 47% of the vote in the bag right now.

    The amount of money spent on campaigning wouldn't even cover Congress' bar tab.

    no way.....the overtime alone used to get that shit out was ridiculous....and they dont pay first class rates even though it has to be treated as such.....Political Mail is a waste of time and money.....everyone hates it.....the people hate getting it.....Letter Carriers hate dealing with it.......basically..... its a waste....
