Re: Vote em out!
....because they had money left in their budget and in Washington it's "use it or lose it".
Yes, this is true for all federal department offices, and this includes budgets for office furniture, computers, renovation, and office supplies. That's why you'll see huge trucks of office supplies backing up to your local federal office buildings at the end of their fiscal years. If they have money left in their office supply budgets, they have to spend it, otherwise the next year their office supply budgets will be cut to reflect what they didn't use/spend the previous year. Then they lose $X number of dollars for their office budgets the next year and they never get it back.
Just another example of federal government inefficiency. As my old man used to say, "They could f--k up a free lunch". Man, good thing the federal government isn't running something as important as...oh I dunno...our healthcare. Whew. That would be a total cluster f....oh wait...that's right...
Edit: Oh, and I just looked at the renovation pictures. $222,000 renovation for a 10x10 bathroom? Yeah, that contracter just put in an order for a brand new boat, camper, and pickup truck. Plus, he just ordered bumper stickers that say, "Thanks for this US Taxpayers!" for all of them.
Wow, what a rip-off. Sadly, this shouldn't surprise any of us.
