    The OIG has already done that. It's mentioned in the original article. Of course the OIG is part of the GSA....

The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    You are joking right?

    I used contract in this form:

    verb (used without object)
    20. to become drawn together or reduced in compass; become smaller; shrink:

    However, I can see the confusion and would of had the same reaction.

    SO now, in order to not look like a hypocrite, you need to say "It was not bush's fault either"... on the count of three...
    Uh, hello? You claimed that you were citing an article that showed the Obama administration knew of the problem. The article you cited only identified two people who knew of the scandal, outside the OIG, and they are both gone. So WTF are you talking about? Who are the other administration figures, and please include a link?

    If there are such folks I certainly agree that they should be ****canned immediately.

    Martha Johnson resigned...wonder what lifetime benefits she'll receive from taxpayers?

    Seems most government agencies have these worthless conferences with a number of them held in Las Vegas. Most just show more waste and fraud in Washington...what else is new?
    If it sounds like Marx and acts like Stalin...it must be Obama
