IRRITATING ATTITUDE OF THOSE WHO HAVE TAX DOLLARS AT THEIR DISPOSAL:

Sports Authority Chairman J. Kent Friedman on having to use reserves to cover a debt payment:

“It doesn’t cause me any concern at all,” he said.

Port of Houston Chairman James Edmonds on a generous severance package given to a former PR executive:

“I think she provides value. I’m comfortable with the agreement…”

Just remember, these (unelected) elites know better than you how to spend your money. Since they don’t work for taxpayers, they have no incentive to be responsive to taxpayers. Here’s an idea: Anyone who can spend taxpayer dollars should have to be elected by voters.
