    Why should we be worried? Government institutions have always spent our money with our best interest in mind.


    For example, the bailouts kept employment rates below 8%. Whats not to trust?

    I am more disgusted by the politicians that are grilling them. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. The Senators steal thousands of times more from the taxpayers, yet they act holier than thou against the little guys.

    Panetta spends more tax payer dollars flying home every weekend then the whole GSA party.

    They all disgust me.

    I care, but what am I gonna do?

    Vote? ha.

    Choose the lessor of two evils. Man I gotta tell ya that sucks.

    Am I going to change the way things are? Nope.

    Any ideas????? I got some, but everyone of us who cares has to get together and agree.

    Not gonna happen or be allowed to happen.

    850k.....how much will it cost me for puttin them in jail or fining them? how much did it cost me to fly the space shuttle to Washington?

    Right now screw all that.

    Time to get Our Country outta dept.

    So yeah, I care, but what am I gonna do about it?

    I'm guessing we misunderstand the committees point. I think it is a GSA session on "how to", not to stop it.

    The GSA got caught with their pants down, but are they the only ones? Hell no. Look at ATF - the former director (Truscott) spent $300K just remodelling his office. He also went over budget - without Congressional approval - by $23 million on the new HQ building. Now, as we learned recently, the Government routinely sends 400 people (Washington post article this week) to oversee security whenever POTUS goes overseas. 400 people? WTF?

    I'm sure that there are more examples out there. Is anyone surprised?

    This was found out by the GSA itself, and as such, THAT is a good thing. The waste is not and those who did this need to be fired at least.

    You must realize that there are whole entities that want our Prez dead, and I'm not at all surprised the number is near 400. I do not expect penny pinching AT ALL, EVER when it comes to our Prez's life, even the current idiot occupant. Not ok with waste though, but who is ok with that?

    There is so much waste within the Govt it is mind boggling. Are we going to do anything about it? No.

    As long as we keep paying our taxes like lemmings to keep all these agencies partying like rock stars, that's all that matters.

    I believe this was discussed quite extensively when it first broke.
