American VoicesPolitics ISSUE 44•49 Dec 4, 2008

Three years late and nearly $360 million over budget, the Capitol Visitor Center is finally open in Washington, D.C. What do you think?

  • “My family's so excited. We can't wait to ride the Supplemental Appropriator, catch a bite at Filibuster's, and have our picture taken with Peddly the Lobbyist.”

  • “Perhaps this can pave the way for other over-budgeted visitor centers at federal landmarks. I always thought the St. Louis Arch should have an underground visitor center directly beneath it that is shaped like a 600-foot-deep subterranean arch.”

  • “Oooo, I can't wait until it's closed for renovations.”
