Congressional Distractions

It’s a scandalous time for Capitol Hill and one company is hoping to cash in.

Florida based Spirit airlines has taken the recent GSA spending and secret service sex scandals and turned them into a marketing opportunity. Right now they are offering a GSA sale with fares starting from just $19.80 one way. Spirit says in the case of their campaign GSA stands for “great savings always.” It is also offering cheap flights to Colombia; the sight of an alleged tryst between secret service agents and a prostitute. Spirit says upfront payment for this trip is required.

But not everyone is laughing; I recently spoke with Congressman George Miller about the congressional distractions.

“It’s very discouraging to see government workers and government workers with a lot of experience behave in that fashion as they did in the GSA and the secret service.” “We have the oversight we have the investigations taking place but we have to grow the economy it’s starting its working we have to keep it going.”

Business opportunities can strike anywhere; even at the expense of our country.
