Peeved

I am a little bit peeved. Did you know that we paid for Ronald Reagan's funeral? It cost us in excess of $400 million dollars. That is right you heard me. How do you ask? The funeral itself cost several million, then all government employees were given the day off with pay. Why?

Our tax dollars at work.

  1. I was wondering about who paid the cost.  I think $400 million is a tad much, even for an ex-president.  Why was there a service of some sort in Calif, then move him to Washington DC only to move him back to Calif?  And it has taken a week to bury the man.

  2. I,m with you, They can spend all of our tax dollars on this. But don't have enough to pay teachers what they are worth. Older people on a fixed income, worry if they will be able to EAT and pay for theirs meds. I think Mr. Reagan should have been honored in a proper fashion, but this was waaaaay over the top.

    This is a crime and a sin when there are children going to be hungry in this country and people without health care.
