The GSA has suddenly gone all “Eric Holder” on Congress, testifying to the House subcommittee that the broken lease won’t cost taxpayers a dime, when in fact it will cost at least $250 million- or more.
Social Security's board of trustees may have had the president in mind when they released a grim report on Tuesday that said its trust fund will be depleted by 2033 -- three years earlier than forecast.
The national media is dominated at this moment by two gigantic scandals involving the U.S. government. One involves the GSA- General Services Administration- and their excessive spending on a conference in Las Vegas. The other involves the U.S. Secret Service and their excessive behavior on a Presidential trip to Columbia. Both scandals present valuable lessons about the way our government operates.
With the number of Secret Service members and agents caught up in the partying-with-prostitutes scandal in Cartagena now at a dozen, and six already gone, how much wider and deeper does this go?
Increasing public disapproval of Barack Obama is based on more than his extravagant spending, which hangs debt like an albatross around the necks of our children and grandchildren. He is presiding over the most scandal-ridden administration in decades, from Colombia to Las Vegas to the Mexican border to Solyndra and more.
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.
