Washington, D.C.: Homeless numbers double amid highly-paid government households

Throughout the past 20 years, the salaries and benefits of government workers have increased substantially, even as the American people struggle to survive in trailer parks.

Lawmakers at the federal, state and most local levels have been transforming government employees into kings and queens walking among peasants.

In many locations, the largest mansions are owned by government bureaucrats. Government workers often get many weeks of paid vacation annually, totally-free medical and dental treatment, and extravagant retirement benefits. Many brag that they work only a few hours a day. THOUSANDS of applicants now apply for even the lowest level federal job opening. Bookstores are filled with books on how to apply for a federal job.

Now the New York Times reports that the numbers of homeless have doubled in communities around Washington, D.C., where large numbers of government workers live like kings among starving peasants. These communities have some of the highest household incomes IN THE WORLD.

Socialism is a curse that should be wished only on a hated enemy.
