WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two ex-Halliburton employees told Democratic lawmakers that Vice President Dick Cheney (news - web sites)'s old energy company "routinely overcharged" for work it did for the U.S. military, the congressmen said on Thursday.

The Texas oil services giant, which is being examined by the military for possibly overcharging for services, has consistently denied allegations of overbilling.

Halliburton did not immediately respond to the allegations or questions over why the two employees had left the company.

The two ex-employees, who contacted U.S. Rep. Henry Waxman, a California Democrat who has been critical of Halliburton, worked for the Texas firm's procurement office in Kuwait. Waxman's office said the two quit for personal reasons.

Examples of wasteful spending given by the ex-employees ranged from leasing ordinary vehicles for $7,500 a month to seeking embroidered towels at a cost of $7.50 each when ordinary ones would have cost about a third of the price.
You mean the Bush/Rove/Cheney administration would steal from American taxpayers? Say it ain't so!
