More expensive (and time consuming) ceremonies and awards for the elite in government while the regular workers have their pay frozen or their position cut, the national debt is rising faster than ever, and the country is struggling economically. When will these guys actually do some real work instead of trying to find ways to praise themselves and waste their time at taxpayer expense? No wonder the government is so inefficient.
