  •  Good question! (4.00)
    Very good question on use of taxpayer moneys.  And does the 1.6 Billion include the money Bush spent going around the country "catapulting the propaganda" on Social Security?

    •  Taxpayer money is the key issue here.. (4.00)
      This GAO report only included "self-reported information from the agencies."  There should be an accounting for all taxpayer dollars used in this way.  This should be public information, and the Bush Administration needs to come clean with us about exactly who got PR $$$ and how much did they get.  Bush is running this country like it is his own company.  Heaven help us.
      •  yeah, and every company he ran (4.00)
        ran into the ground....  ggrrrrr.

        Thank you Congresswoman Pelosi.  I appreciate the information, and hope to find a way to insert it into local political races.  I don't know what else to do with it because the enormity of the corruption is sometimes a bit overwhelming...

      •  Great idea...a step further even (none)
        I think it would be awesome for our government to send a statement/receipt of sorts reporting to us how much they received from us, where the money went, and what they're doing with it.

        It wouldn't be much different from the Social Security statements we all get each year.

        It would be full disclosure and we'll know just where our hard-earned money is going and how it's being managed/spent.

        What do you think?

        Oh, and of course, those who are concerned about wasting paper can opt to receive such a statement via email.  :-)

    •  Sorry Barbwires (none)
      Responded with the same thought above, before seeing yours.  Must... read... comments....
