To the GSA scandal -- do plot from a Americans for Tax Reform is in DC and here's the question for humanity is waste like what we created the GSA conference.
Can you tell me that it is definitely widespread there is that other incidents like this amongst federal -- -- tell me that.
Right -- mean we're -- ourselves that we think this is unique to -- and you heard David say this is chump change is only a couple 100000 here there you know.
Couple 100000 here they are -- -- the entire federal government.
You got a real problem in -- -- its own numbers.
If you look at the cost of federal bureaucrat over you know forty year career it's actually seven million dollars for each federal bureaucrat that we're hiring.
As we can see look at what they're doing with that money they're spending taxpayer money to go to lavish conferences to award themselves for not doing anything although still not actually popular thing.
Do you know for a fact that there are other conferences with mind readers of bicycle building and clowns and videos.
I mean I mean you know left for a factor was this just an assumption.
That federal workers have a mind -- that irresponsible spending -- money.
Why I think that the apparel but the assumption apparel workers do have this -- that.
Is not necessarily eighty far off idea you -- look at what we have from the stimulus money alone we've had senators Coburn and McCain released reports every single year documenting -- kind of waste we've seen the and I eight.
Doing things like jello -- in the -- when they're supposed to be doing research using them trying to -- Trips on a treadmills and a really famous one you know.
This kind of waste is endemic across the federal government enacting hiring compounds but you know -- the exact same thing it's it's a it's a total disregard.
For taxpayers and where we're seeing this money going like I think three point eight million dollars a year where that money don't.
How do you stop.
I mean how do you stop -- I mean this has been Truffaut decades is not a question of the Obama -- rational bushel Clinton.
Is it this is true for decades.
How do you know.
Office right you're absolutely right this is -- aberration this is -- now we've seen over the course of time that federal government and federal workers.
Don't actually care that they're spending public money I you know and I think about the criticism here -- that this is you know witch hunt we're going after GSA.
The promise that they'll watch it and write the promise that we see this in GSA because -- -- -- -- -- we need to be diligent about looking and other agencies in making -- at this isn't happening across you know different agencies.
And this was a report put out by an inspector general.
Every agency hasn't inspector general they need to delegate into -- on their workers making yeah happening America where we say this every time it happens one that we just cut spending one that we just -- 10% -- old what have a percent you like.
At and every budget for every department a -- Sarah how are they gonna cut it.
Right you know and that would be ideal but remember this happening over the course of a federal pay freeze that Obama himself had dictated so.
The problem here is not necessarily administration.
And the rules -- -- is but the actual bureaucracy and what these agencies are -- do with their money if they want to spend their money on clowns and won't stop -- -- and that sort of thing.
You know welcome to do -- but they should be held responsible for about -- about that -- -- almost public backlash against that is the first piece of the -- -- it's made -- -- we appreciate being with us thanks very much and --
