guess I'd better keep working so they can pay those booze bills...

"Last year alone, the State Department sent taxpayers tabs totaling nearly $300,000 for alcoholic beverages — about twice as much compared to the previous year, according to an analysis of spending records by The Washington Times."

And the money quote from the article: "Taxpayer watchdogs say while accounting for a small fraction of the State Department's overall budget, some of the liquor expenditures reflect larger concerns about stewardship of federal tax dollars at a time when many recession-weary Americans find themselves struggling to hold onto jobs and pay mortgages. "

Yep. More people losing their jobs, government gets larger...and these bums are boozin' it up on our dime. And they wonder why the Tea Party movement exists.

Good Find. And I'm sure not the only example.

If you were working for Hillary Clinton as secretary of State, and it was your job to clean up the mess left by Joe Biden whenever he visited a former ally..... your alcohol consumption would be high as well.

And when your employer causes the headache, they have to pay for the cure. Basis of Workers comp law.
