Big Government at it's finest. $27 million to waste on extravagances while the taxpayers who paid that $27 million are struggling to pay our bills and feed our kids. You'd almost think we were in Communist China. Is this the Democrats idea of what Government is for? It's not mine. I doubt it's the idea of most of the millions of unemployed who are either looking or have given up looking for work. The country only needs to elect 19 more Republicans in the House and 13 in the Senate to put a stop to this "in your face" activity by Government workers. I feel it necessary to point out, Government workers have enjoyed under 5% unemployment for all but a month or two of the economic hard times since 2008.GSA’s financial mess not limited to Vegas shindig

The dysfunctional culture that cost regional General Services Administration officials their jobs following the disclosure of an “over-the-top” Las Vegas conference extends beyond the Western states region and further back to previous GSA executives in Washington, records indicate.
In February 2010, then-CFO Kathleen M. Turco told top GSA bosses that the office had $25 million in excess cash, while it actually had $52 million, leaving it $27 million to spend on pet projects, according to a report from the Office of Inspector General.
