Politicians are continually not held accountable for the misuse of federal funds. We pay hard-earned tax dollars for them to have our best interest, not their own. Too often they are selfish and intent on lining the pockets of their friends. If they are found to be abusers of the perpetually short government budgets they should absolutely have to repay it to the American Public - if not in funds, then in some other meaningful and comparable fashion. Politicians should not be allowed to treat our tax dollars like Monopoly cash.
