Oh, Mr. Witt. With every post you make, you confirm that you have no grasp of the issues you post on, don't read the accompanying articles and only come here to post your ideology. Sad.

From the first paragraph:

Quote:
A $222,000 renovation in 2007 was expensive enough to prompt an internal investigation.
Mr. Witt, who was president in 2007?

It's from the Bush era.

The biggest myth in politics is that there's a huge difference between the two parties. They are both wasteful with our money.

Good that you posed that question, I believe that it was none other than your very OWN . George W Bush.

Actually that calls into question, why is this news being reported now? I think the investigation was completed in 2009.

Yes both are wasteful but this is yet another example of the GOP blowing money. Sorry but 10-15k should of been the most spent there.

You didn't read the article did you? Or is it hubris that the current administration looked into things done by the previous one, how horrible that they would try to figure out why so much money was wasted on something like this.

But I'd assume you'll be happy about this that the current administration is doing...

A GSA spokesman says the work happened before the current administration took over and that more oversight is in place now to protect against wasteful renovations in the future.

If you don't spend enough money on the bathroom it'll be crap, or it'll leak and damage the building, neither of which are good.

We shouldn't be putting our top elected officials up in crap accommodation.

That said $225k is a ridiculous amount to spend on a bathroom.
