Go Get 'em Henry! End the taxpayer-funded propaganda junkets!

Rocky Mountain News , April 8, 2005:
"Waxman Seeks Cost of Bush Trips"

Spurred by the ouster of three Denver residents from a speech by President Bush last month, a congressman is seeking a formal accounting of the cost of Bush's Social Security trips.
Rep. Henry Waxman, of California, the ranking Democrat on the House Committee on Government Reform, also is questioning whether the White House is using taxpayer funds for political purposes.
'Informing the public is the president's responsibility; using taxpayer resources to mount a sophisticated propaganda and lobbying campaign is an abuse of the president's high office,' Waxman said."
Waxman said that expelling people with contrary views and promoting a partisan agenda are "hallmarks of campaign events, not government-funded political meetings."
This was the question I asked on March 30, but with so many questions and so many crimes piling up daily, where is one to start dealing with them? Thanks to Henry Waxman for his early and never-ending quest to find the weak link in this Administration's teflon chainmail of hubris and deception.
