Parliament of Whores is an entertaining book that aims to explain the American Government The author PJ ORourke is a brilliant satirist that attacks all of the most important aspects of our Government ORourke has an open opinion about American Politics that is controversial and thought provoking This book offered a wealth of back round information that was very fascinating There are many things about Congress that made one grasp a greater respect for their profession Even though they only work 145 days a years there is an incredible amount of information that they have to sort out In just one short week each congressman has to deal with about 275 items that are on the congressional calendar They are assisted by their nine staff members They are given voting cards that give brief overview of what is on each item One that may have perceived congress as lazy will now see them as underpaid workers of the most powerful nation in the world In regard to taxes it is interesting to see that ninety-five percent of the population is takers of the taxes This means that only five percent of Americans pay more in taxes than they receive in benefits from the government programs But does anyone really pay more It can also be seen as a protection of your guaranteed natural rights and it is hard to believe that there can be a price given to those From taxes to drugs it is odd to me that most employees are tested for drugs and yet our government officials are not even subject to this same standard This is extremely intriguing since almost all of public officials consider a drug-free America such a significant concept Now we turn to how much money is wasted by our federal government A vast source of wasted money in our federal are in programs that are outdated and no longer have relevance in our society today
