The same budget would have been used no matter what the inside of the room looked like, maybe you idiots should go and learn how compartmentalized government spending really is, you know nothing about how the government spends money. The fault lies with the people who make the budget, your congressmen and women, it has nothing to do with the people who actually spend it. Why you ask? Because once the money is budgeted, it is gone. If you don't spend it it doesn't go back to the government, it doesn't go anywhere, and if you don't spend it this year next year you will be cut, and what if you need money for essential items next year? There is no way to reliably get a budget increase.This country's people are degrading at a rate faster than we can keep up. Right on fools.
If a corporation wants to spend lavish amounts of money on a conference room, that's fine (still wasteful) they earned that money with their business selling products. It wasn't given to them by tax payers to spend on education, health care, etc.
I guess you're correct about that 2nd statement... you and many other 'fools' seem to perfectly fine with our government officials building lavish work areas at our country's expense. We don't (or weren't supposed to) pay taxes for them to waste on 'pet' projects in the work place.
