    Joe Biden went on vacation and made you, the tax payer, pay for it.

    Now that it's in the news, he's got a $1,200 check ready.

    Corruption at its finest. Sick of this administration.

    Another black mar on this administration and very embarrassing for Democrats.

    I really hope the GOP makes this an issue so that people know what's been going on.

    Wait, he's still alive?

    I can't recall who said it.. "One must work before they can get a vacation"

    Maybe. Maybe not. They'll have to make sure none of their politicians have done the same before they start throwing stones.

    Politicians suck. Both democrats and republicans.

    Firstly, source?

    Secondly, I can play this game too: George W Bush lied and went on a crusade against Saddam Hussain, and made you, the tax payer, pay for it. Still waiting for him to write a check though.

    I'm a supporter of neither party, but anyone who thinks that only one of the two parties is corrupt is deluding themselves.

    Of all the things the politicians do wrong( both Dems and GOP), you want to use inappropriately using a cabin as a big issue with our government?

    Hell even in the article it states this isn't a new practice. So you can probably assume the GOP has done this as well....

    This is in the wrong thread. Please start a George Bush thread on this if you like.

    Let's stick with Joe Biden here.

    Thanks for sticking to the rules.

    yes, of course, because the economy is going to get fixed & the wars are going to end once Biden pays that tab :rolleyes::rolleyes: there are much better things to discuss other than Bidens fleecing of the tax payers, I bet plenty of republicans have done the same thing . pretend it's "business" while out on vacation.

    Your own article. But I will post the quote again....

    It isn't a new practice according to that statement. So you can bet the GOP has done this as well.

    Gas has been cheap the past several weeks. It's saved Americans far more than a measly $1,200.

    Let Biden live. :D

    Uncle Joe is a career politician who never cashed in. I respect him for that and for his ability to gaffe, so I think I'll give him a pass on a ****ing cabin in a National Park.

    Him and his wife have a net worth of $600,000. My townhouse is almost worth that much.

    I'll give you that. Joe definitely isn't as rich as most politicians.

    I guess that's good.

    This is government. Don't follow politics if you can't stomach it.

    Raaaaacist!

    But seriously, Biden likes to play Chuckly Uncle Joe Whom No One Should Take Too Seriously, but he's as corrupt as they come.

    And he made it his personal mission to criminalize encryption when he was in the Senate. He is no friend of liberty.

    Aren't there way bigger issues that should be addressed than $1200?

    This thread is the perfect example of what's wrong with politics in this country and why nothing never gets done, but it's not for the OP's reasons.

    If he was as corrupt as they come his net worth would be more than $600,000.
