Phoenix -Security Administration federal employees dance the taxpayers’ money away to the tune of $700,000.
The 700 Federal government employees were flown in from all over the country to stay at the 4-star Waldorf Astoria Spa Hotel in Phoenix, Arizona. The “stress relief” getaway was meant to sooth government employees psyches and was also attended by the Commissioner of the Social Security.
Many taxpayers feel the Social Security employees could have had these meetings at their offices and teleconferenced.
At a time of severe recession, when families are losing their homes and jobs, is this the change we can believe in?
The Social Security Administration claims they chose the cheapest contract. I doubt you’ll find a taxpayer who thinks a bankrupt federal agency should be taking $700,000 vacations on their dime.
