Stealing From Inventors

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel http://www.jsonline.com/business/120673029.html, Congress, has just decided to steal another $100 million from the Patent Office, which is really stealing from US inventors.  We don’t need financial reform or Sarbanes Oxley for the private sector we need if for Congress and the President.  All of them would be in jail if they pulled this stunt in the private sector.  The morality of the public sector has fallen to a new low.  One result appear that the USPTO will have to impose a hiring freeze.  This is just more evidence that Congress is not serious about its Constitutional duty of protecting the Rights of Inventors.
