The new $600 toilet seat?

We are all glad that the Obama administration is keeping a tight rein on government spending. From the Washington Post:

Where does a muffin cost more than $16?

At a government conference, it turns out.

They may run just over $2 at your average coffee shop, but the Justice Department paid seven to eight times as much at a gathering it held at the Capital Hilton in Washington. And on Tuesday, the muffins seemed well on their way to joining the Pentagon’s $600 toilet seat as symbols of wasteful spending.

Justice Department auditors also criticized a $76-per-person lunch at a conference at a Hilton in San Francisco, featuring slow-cooked Berkshire pork carnitas, hearts-of-romaine salad — and coffee at $8.24 a cup. . . .

The Obama administration has much more money on its EBT card than the average food stamp recipient, but they still have that same sense of entitlement, don't they?
