The House That Pocahantas Built: Come Tour the Gold-Plated Temple to Bureaucracy That King Obama Built for Princess Elizabeth Warren

You can always tell you're getting good honest government from the opulence of the seraglios they build with your money.

Mick Mulvaney, the [Consumer Financial Protection Board's] acting director, graciously allowed The Daily Caller News Foundation to take an exclusive tour on Feb. 1 of the federal office -- founded by Democratic Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts -- that has been widely criticized for cost overruns and extravagance.

Ignorance is knowledge. War is peace. The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau exists to spend consumers' finances like drunken sailors who just found out they've been drinking fermented AIDS.

...

The first thing that stands out is that the office space does not feel like a government building at all. It could be an upscale hotel, a college campus or a corporate headquarters.

"There was interest to move this above a Class C Building," said a CFPB source familiar with the renovation and the operation of the building. "Now it's a Class A building," he told TheDCNF.

The Building Owners and Managers Association International, which represents owners and managers of all commercial office buildings, describe Class A buildings as "the most coveted buildings in the marketplace."

The $124 million spent to date for the 303,000 square foot office building is $409 per square foot, more than Trump World Tower, which cost $334 per square foot or Las Vegas' Bellagio Hotel and Casino, priced at $330 per square foot.

Why shouldn't you have all the nice things just because you're a socialist?

Socialist Opulence is, like government, what we all do together. It's just that only a certain Elect get to benefit from it.
