Government should be held accountable

Wow! $4.1 million dollars. I am really glad IRS measures are in place to see this does not happen again in at least the next six months. That is just about the lifespan of measures. Salmon have a longer life span than measures.

Multiply that times 1,000 times for agencies that feel they need more bonuses or more dinner parties. The heads of these agencies should no longer be heads if they don’t realize what is going on with their departments.

Take care of taxpayers’ money as if it was your own. Green fees are not a part of department expenditures. How many times have you heard about a government agency apologizing for moneys unaccounted for in the last six months? Who is the responsible person in charge, and what recourse do we have? Will we ever learn the answer to that question?
