What ever happened to public service? decency?

We have enormous problems in this country …..people desperately wanting jobs to support their families etc…and all I see are huge fights between the political parties and reports that President Obama is going on a vacation that will cost taxpayers 4 million dollars.  What happened to REAL public service? or just old fashion decency?  It disturbs me that some politicians just blah blah blah….and really don’t mean it ….and are committed only to themselves.
