I am curious. Someone always says that "Somebody needs to do something about the criminals running America but no one does anything". What exactly are those somebodies empowered to do if they are ignored?

As far as military budgets go:
My late father's last job was as a civilian accountant at a nearby Air Force base
...what I heard the most from him about it was mainly diatribes about "$700 screwdrivers", "$1200 staplers", "$13,000 lug nuts for military vehicles" and the like.
Just so one can make a good guess as to why their multi-billion dollar budget is so "necessary".

And to think that, lately, they've been cutting into the Social Security and Medicare tills to help dig up the funds necessary to keep this budget going ....
