No paperwork spared for ordinary citizens
Why should we have a double standard where politicians are able to purchase whatever they want without receipts? They may not even need the item; they just take it and don’t have to prove they need it.
I work in a nursing home where I spend a great deal of my time filling out papers on behalf of residents whom I could be better serving in other ways. I must put these residents though tests trying to prove that they need a particular piece of equipment or, mostly, a certain medication that their doctor feels they need and has already ordered. Many times someone in government denies a legitimate request.
Doctors spend much of their time filling out papers for the government – time that could be better spent with patients. Many times when they must fill out papers for a patient who needs a product or a service, the fee for doing this is passed on to the patient.
I guess the politicians feel they are more privileged than the rest of us and they should not be subjected to this complicated way of doing things, or they may not get what they want if they have to prove need. So they pass rules saying they don’t need to do what the rest of us have to do, and we allow it.
If the government is the people, I think it’s time the people took their power back and did not allow the politicians to make their own rules. It’s time for equality.
