Thanks for posting that link to Heritage, Hazaa. Very informative. While so many Americans are suffering in this economy, we find out that "nearly half of all purchases on government credit cards are improper, fraudulent, or embezzled. Examples of taxpayer-funded purchases include gambling, mortgage payments, liquor, lingerie, iPods, Xboxes, jewelry, Internet dating services, and Hawaiian vacations." Unbelievable.

It's so easy to spend someone else's money, isn't it?
