Comments

Did you notice that the Representative's letter was dated 04/18/2013 and requested a response from Steve Miller by 04/12/2013? Poor proofreading by the staff and Representative lessens the impact of the requests. Did the Representative mean for the response to by by 05/13/2013 or some other date?

When all these agencies have cut out their conferences, and their phony diversity training, and other garbage, and then they start furloughing people, then I might beleive they have a real budget problem. But when they furlough the front line employees first, while doing nothing about the waste, I cry foul.
