HA, politician's make very little from it. Sure, they pander ad stoke their reelection funds and try to pocket some of it but that's how the vaunted "system" works. They are relative pikers in the process. The real gorgers are "the private sector." Where does all that money go? Poor people or delusional middle class people who would be poor without their government money live high on the hog and send the rest to Swiss and Cayman island bank accounts? Ha ha. No. The people those people buy things from and slum lords and cruise lines collect it at the distal end.
