That is a very interesting find! It's things like this that add up over many departments into huge costs!

I wonder just how many other such "Getaways" there are? I wonder how many the IRS has?

There really needs to be some kinds of governmental department that investigates this. Or maybe there is, The U.S. Government Accountability Office and they aren't doing enough

Both of you have some good points. You know the problem is that these agencies are supposed to be accountable to us, the taxpayers. But I fear this is where we, the taxpayers, have failed in our duties. Our duties to "fire" or not "re-elect" these same mistakes of elected officials.

I don't believe that we need another government agency. That government agency would then need a resort of their own. It is our job (us citizens and taxpayers) to hold these folks accountable. Our government is TOO big the way it is. We need to get rid of at least 1/2 of the government offices.

But that may just be my take on it.

This administration is the most unaccountable in our history! Our Presidential candidate - Orack Obama - has removed the word accountability from the Washington dictionary. I call him candidate Obama because he is still campaigning (only now for president of the world).

He has a Cabinet, one that he has met with twice in the last 10 months. But, he meets with his Czars twice a week. The problem is, that they (the Czars) are not accountable to anyone but him (and the Unions). Congress has no oversight of them whatsoever. It is them who now make all policy immune from checks and balances. They have zero vesting or investigations or background checks (except by Washington outsiders). The mainstream press covers for them by not reporting or distracting coverage.

There is probably a few resorts just for them!

Unemployment is ramped everywhere in this country except for Washington, DC! There the Czars get all the help they need to subvert our rights and they get it at our expense - both financially and in the usurpation of our rights!

It's time to get tough and fire anyone who just blindly follows their party's wants and forgets that they work for us. And they work for us on a temporary basis.

I am rather partial to the Constitution Party due to their stance on many issues. I do believe they have the most stable platform of all "3rd parties"... And definitely a more stable platform than the "primary parties".
