Blame Congress for the GSA Scandal

Good grief, Mr. Reagan -- howsabout we hold responsible the people WHO ACTUALLY spent all the money -- as in the employees and managers themselves? These people are public employees -- aka public servants. They behaved very badly with money that was not their own. There is nothing more to it. I am so weary of this "who is to blame" game. BLAME the people who committed the acts -- and fire their sorry behinds immediately. Period.

Like all Federal agencies, it's a monopoly can not be made accountable and with time they all become corrupt as well as inept. Fire them yes, but that won't change anything.

Who should we tar and feather for the scandalous spending spree at that General Services Administration “conference” in Nevada two years ago?

Whose fault is it that a bunch of GSA bureaucrats wasted money on $44 breakfasts, a clown and a $75,000 bicycle-building exercise?

Not the GSA’s bosses. Not the Obama administration. I pin the blame on Watergate and Congress.

This week Congressional hearings all over Washington have been grilling past and current GSA officials about a $850,000 conference that blew thousands of dollars on things like a mind-reader and “yearbooks” and commemorative coins for the 300 participants.
