It's ill-gotten, and ill-spent, and then they keep wanting more--removing the debt ceiling every year.

That is greed AND squandering it, and having no qualms about squeezing more out of working people.

If they put the money directly to the people in need first, instead playing games with it to get re-elected first and foremost, it would be alright. As it is, it's just a drunken binge applied to greed for power, for which we pay.
