Skip to comments.Congress Should Seek The Help of BIG Accounting, Consulting & Law Firms to Deal With The Scandals

Congress should get the major accounting firms, consulting firms and law firms on board to investigate the administration on the VA, the IRS, Fast & Furious, the border crisis, Obamacare, the stonewalling, the lies, the coverups and even Benghazi. They have the manpower and the expertise to unearth the corruption, lies, deceit and the truth that the administration is hiding.........
This is actually an idea that has merit. The House could establish an HOR Commission with investigative powers. If the Commission is blocked by the Executive Branch, then a special committee with full power could follow.
Good idea if the GOP, lead by Bonehead actually wanted to find the truth.
However, Bonehead just wants to use it, like every scandal as a campaign
I have long been of the opinion that any organization or person who receives money from any State or the Federal government agency for any venture be required to publish a financial report on-line once a year. Complete disclosure including bank statements, listing of checks paid by number, date, payee, purpose and all invoices received requesting payment. I also think all government employee should file a copy of their travel and expense requests on-line.
It’s way past time to open up the check book so everyone can see where all the money goes.
With corruption rampant at every level of government there is no possibility of uncovering anything. The only solution is to bring down the government.
I read sometime back that the Federal Reserve cannot balance it’s book to less than 200 million a day. If that is true then a complete and through audit is definitely needed. The public needs to know where that money is going, who gets its and those stealing it need to go to jail or be executed.
It is after all the tax payers money.
Can’t do it. That would probably yield results.
I can understand with all the financial movement continuously going on why it would be impossible to know exactly how much money there is at an exact moment. In spite of this, however, there should be a detailed report available of all government funded grants and projects on a regular basis. As an example the $500,000 grant recently made to study the mother-daughter obesity issue. Who is getting the money and then who have they given it to and for what purpose.
IMO the funding should come with the provision that reports are filed on a regular defined basis and if they aren’t, the money has to be returned with appropriate steps taken if it isn’t. I know that this will not happen in my lifetime and I have written lots of letters about it, most of which are ignored. But I can still voice my wishes.
Because everyone knows that nobody is more trustworthy or more pure of heart than accountants, consultants, and lawyers.
Really funny satire, but it would be even better if you threw in the Banksters with the accounting, consulting, and law firms. They you could call it 'New Enron'.
Yeah, like Arthur Anderson. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthur_Andersen#Enron_scandal
Congress should cut off all funding that directly or indirectly finds its way to accountants and lawyers for at least three terms, then see to it that none of them are paid more than $10 per hour thereafter directly or indirectly by any government entity or any victim of any government entity or government-linked associate. That would solve most of the problem with contemporary corruption.
