The Great Barrier Reef 'Junket'

Let's see, I canceled my vacation for this year...expense savings mind you.

But what do our legislators seem to be doing now-a-days?

And they do it on company our expense

Congressmen Took Exotic 'Climate Change' Junket

Diving and snorkeling at Australia's Great Barrier Reef, watching New Year's fireworks in New Zealand, and sleeping in a luxury Hawaiian hotel is the vacation of a lifetime — unless you're a member of Congress. Then it's a fact-finding mission to study climate change.

Ten lawmakers — six Democrats and four Republicans — spent 11 days on an international junket in some of the most breathtaking spots on Earth. Then they stuck taxpayers with the $500,000-plus bill.
