BigNews.Biz - Apr 04,2012 - LIEBERMAN REACTS TO GSA BOONDOGGLE
WASHINGTON – Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Joe Lieberman, ID-Conn., issued the following statement Monday in reaction to a General Services Administration (GSA) Inspector General report outlining reckless spending on a regional GSA conference.
“This was a stupid and infuriating waste of taxpayer dollars. The people responsible for it should be held accountable.”
Now in his fourth and final term representing Connecticut in the United States Senate, Joe Lieberman has earned a national reputation as a thoughtful, principled, and effective legislator.
He is perhaps best known as the Democratic candidate for Vice President in 2000. More than that, he is a national leader who works across party lines to find common ground, who speaks his conscience, and who gets things done for Connecticut and the country.
That reputation is based on a long and distinguished record. Senator Lieberman is one of Congress's most influential voices on security issues. He was the Senate's leading champion of legislation creating the Department of Homeland Security to better protect the nation from terrorist attacks. He has been at the forefront of efforts not only to increase our investment in defense, but to transform our armed forces to better meet the threats of the 21st Century. Senator Lieberman has been a strong and consistent advocate for using America's military might to defend America's interests and values when they are seriously endangered.
