Government pay not charity for rich

Let this be a democratic country, where the people are in charge of their own money and spending.

How dare anyone who is being payed by taxpayers believe that he or she is worth every penny for the job that they do.

First of all, if they are that good (in their minds), why are our finances not good?

My question is: How does George McMinn know better than any of us that he is worth the $480K two-year contract as a consultant?

Well, just call 99 per cent of us taxpayers, and we can do fantastic consulting for no cost. It is easy. We just have to straighten up the priorities.

In Mr. McMinn’s case, I don’t blame him for taking the money. He and others from the same group are just greedy takers.

The people in question should be the ones signing their cheques. Those are the ones who should be consulted for giving away our money with no hesitation. Let’s talk to them immedietaly. It’s never too late.

This whole thing is like a “charity organization” for the rich. First, they share our money between themselves. Second of all, they spend money on non-profitable projects. And after that, there is not much, if any, money left for the priorities. Lovely.

The deficit comes from unadjustable spendings, and if we had good consultants at any level of government, we would have no problem with the budget.

Let this be a democratic country, where the people are in charge of their own money and spendings.
