    "In 2010, the agency used money that had been budgeted to hire enforcement agents to instead help pay for one conference that cost $4.1 million, according to the watchdog's report."

    This may be fraud, government money frequently can't be spent on things other than what it was appropriated for without committing fraud.

    Rep Mcdermott is very possibly right about American voters learning things the hard way, exactly what is it that he thinks we are going to learn?

    The only way to shut down Obama is abolish income tax and payments to government by a nationals outcry and everyone stops tax withholding from their pay checks. If the american people are brave enough we con dethrone this dictator and his opulent throne of power in less than one year by not paying income tax deductions.

    If we stop the treasury from receiving money then they have no funds to spend or hide in off shore banks if impeached or ousted from the country. Tax may be mandatory, but we don't have to use the IRS to store it.

    Law funding? Government forcing people into an unknown health care racket full of taxes, and mandates doesn't sound like American freedom.

    These aren't public servants anymore, but masters of our lives. This is redistributions, and transformation as was promised during the 2008 campaign.

    We've been scammed, and a few still can't see it.

    The patriotic thing to do would be to staunch the flow of money to the cesspool in Washington in any legal way possible. I don't know whether any politician can be trusted, but if a few are willing to strangle this suicidal government program, they got my vote for another day.

    No! Obama, will not increase taxes a single dime in any form.

    Would the president of the United States lie?

    Health scare is alive.
