Washington, D.C. has been called a swamp for many, many years.
Mostly because it is built in a swampy, muddy area of America. But in the past 100 years or so, “The Swamp” doesn’t literally mean the physical area of muggy, soggy humidity anymore.
Instead, it stands for the bureaucrats that “work” for the federal government and receive a paycheck but don’t really actually do their jobs. And on top of that, their jobs are untouchable, so they will never be fired.
And to add insult to injury, a particular swamp agency in D.C., a Barack Obama favorite no less, decided to steal $124 million from the American people to give themselves a pay raise in the form of a new luxury office building.
But now, they are finally paying for their hoity-toity snobbery. The wages of sin has come upon them in the form of a stranger-than-fiction plague.
From The Daily Caller:
Rats — actual rodents — are infesting the newly renovated Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s headquarters, The Daily Caller News Foundation has learned.
Hundreds of the agency’s employees moved into their beautiful $124 million headquarters across the street from the White House in October as construction was still underway. Upon entering, they discovered rats also were making it their home, according to two sources who spoke to TheDCNF on the condition of anonymity.
The $124 million price tag was double the original $55 million estimate and 25 percent over the $99 million estimate approved by Richard Cordray, the bureau’s first director. White House Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney has temporarily taken over the reins of the troubled bureau.
This is nothing short of hilarious. Yes, it is morbid humor, but it is also righteous humor. They overspend and overspend on an office space upgrade, only to receive the gift of vermin in every crevice of their building. That is exactly what they deserve because they in themselves are D.C. rats who feed off taxpayer money and create more problems than solutions.
Perhaps this will be a good lesson to every bureaucrat who still thinks that they can get away with working minimal hours for high pay and benefits.
We can only hope that they will finally understand the fact that their paycheck means that we are their bosses. We The People deserve hard-working, high-quality individuals who aim to work on our behalf instead of hinder and harm us.
Until then, we will just have to watch the Deep State go to the rats, literally.
