Let me see if I understand this. We (the taxpayers) are providing security to the family and home of the vice president in Maryland at no cost to the vice president. Then the vice president turns around and charges me and you (the taxpayers) for a "cottage" on his property to provide him and his with "free" security. Now you wonder why there is a new political uprising in America labeled the "tea party terrorists" by Vice President Joe Biden. How low does the greed of the elected politicians go?
