Mo. governor flies while cutting others' travel - Yahoo! News

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – As part of his plan to shrink government, Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon ordered state employees to travel less, and he sliced their per-mile payment.

How did Nixon break the news? By flying to Kansas City.

To drive home his point, Nixon repeated the announcement the next day by traveling to Columbia and St. Louis.
What a hypocrite!

Nice to see that some State's Executives are taking serious steps to curtail their own State's expenditures.

Apparently Mr. Nixon thinks his own comfort is more important than his State's finances.
What an idiot!
