8 hypocrites in politics and business

We're accustomed to hearing powerful people opining on how the rest of us should behave. Why don't they practice what they preach?

This is the ONLY hypocritical item they found to use here, re: 'Obama BinBiden'? What about his turning on the Palestinians, and his pirouette on PACs?! And his caving on bills full of earmarks that he vowed he would never sign...then did?

Re: the tea partier poster "hands off my medicare".  Seniors pay for medicare (about $110/per month per person), and most purchase supplemental insurance for uncovered expenses and prescriptions, (another $100 to $200 per month).  Who pays for the free medical & prescription coverage illegal aliens receive?  They have not "paid" anything toward health care as our seniors have.

can anyone tell me where i can get a breakdown of how tax dollars are spent?

not someone's opinion, or some future plan, but just a straight forward list of

where the money went. How much was pay roll, how much was defense and on what.

how much was education, how much were administrative costs. I've been web searching for over

an hour and i can't get to a direct answer.

I would love to stop any of my tax dollars from going to one conservatives' health care payment and  for  his or her family. Let them go out and shop for health care in this market and pay for it out of their own pockets, which we and lobbyist fill .  Let a few of them receive letters in the mail stating their MRI is not covered at the clinic they were sent to by their primary Doctor in error. Let them get a feel for the new kind of medical care given by the PPO's were you are hearded in and out in less than five minutes by poor doctors who are forced to make their numbers. I just have to turn the station to HBO to avoid the possibility of a self serving conservative politician popping up on the screen to pitch the evils of Obama Care and paying for womens abortions. Americans have truly been dumbied down so much they can actually listen to this stupid crud and even think Fox has news. It just has to get better.After what Bush did to this country, we are just extremely lucky Obama had the enternal fortitude to take on the tragic mess he was  left  in economically at home and abroad. Obama has done an awful lot of cleanup considering the overwhelming mound of mistakes and lies and blunders he was left to navigate. He has saved the day.
