In what ways was this GSA conference different from thousands of similar events held by private corporations every year?
Congress? I actually heard some lib say it started under Bush. They are programmed to say anything and everything started under Bush - they just have to connect every problem that surfaces back to Bush....STILL!
Michael is right! Congress has been giving away their jobs for the last 70-80 years, turning their jobs over to these unelected, bureaucratic dingle-berries who, once hired are more secure in their jobs (and subsequent tyranny) than the idiot Congressmen that GAVE them their power! How does Congress have time to investigate steroids in baseball, because, instead of doing THEIR jobs, like looking out for the American people and determining what really needs to be tweaked, etc... they have some twit in some office somewhere doing THEIR job, so they can get in front of a camera and POSE to help their re-election! SCRAP all these letter-agencies and start doing YOUR actual, Constitutional job and don't worry about steroids in baseball or whether we should end the BCS or declare the second Tuesday of March "Happy, Love thy Neighbor's Cat's Plush Toy" Day!
I spent ten years in the Marine Corps. I have done my fair share of HR work, since entering the civilian world, and when I see a veteran put down that he "managed a $XXX budget" while in the service, I CHUCKLE! Because, they didn't "manage" that money, they made sure that they spent EVERY SINGLE PENNY and BEGGED FOR MORE before the end of the fiscal year - EVERY YEAR!
That is how ALL government offices (city, state, county and federal) "manage" their money!
It is time "We the people" stand up and tell them - NO MORE! I cannot spend money that I don't have, and YOU cannot spend money that I do not have! After seeing these money debacles, it is just about (if not PAST) "Going Gault" time!

there are far to few Congresscritters to provide the oversight required of Federal agencies and bureaucrats.
Original Congressional apportionment was 1:30000; today would give us all about 10,000 congresscritters-about the right number IMHO to provide more direct supervision of an increasingly unaccountable bureaucracy.
