-- joins us and let me say this constant fine my.
Finally Simmons got this I've talked to so many people in Washington who say to me puzzling four million -- and it just nothing compared to grand scheme of things.
No and I -- myself people my hometown must be so enraged me when they lost jobs federal employees who were kind like federal prosecutors cross country.
-- -- able to it you know I think really drive the point home.
That this is a big deal people got furloughed while they're -- party -- stealing.
What I'll listen to a -- just opening statement Elijah Cummings from Maryland and he was talking about having to bump into people in this neighborhood and how you explain it and then I had another lot of questions books but mom I went back -- 2010.
You're live -- like king Farouk gold to a conference.
Valley will review dual role I was telling folks that you're gonna have to work two weeks with no pay.
And and and you're not gonna have any training and and if it did just that the contrast between one set -- governor employees.
To doing something is dreadful is -- blowing other people's taxpayer money juxtapose.
With the fact that there are plenty of government employees who work really long hours and do really great work.
And -- yet they get furloughed teachers firefighters police officers all of that happened in South Carolina in the exact same year.
That they're spending money on on on videos -- trinkets and the disconnect was was so star.
The end can't -- that I I read I read the other day how we've cut on one hot -- from Marines -- for doing the drawback.
Why and then some Marines work you know late hours of work on the clock and now we're cutting back one more mile high so it's partly and cost.
We have to do that.
I don't know why you weren't about the congress a conference we don't know what these are usually nothing but party's we know stupid things that they put on them at trinkets -- -- This isn't conference and they want to learn something of studies have been stay home and look at on the enacted by Skype for -- and -- and get a bunch of folding chairs the podium.
This is this is that most incredible theft.
From the American people -- -- perp walks to send the message to people wanna do these.
Well you know very -- you you're exactly right in my training or knowledge of the US attorney's offices all walk in the office next -- -- me and -- will Lucius and David -- what I should do and it was free.
-- we didn't have to travel and there were no party favors.
This conference you do need to get credit for attending it it and an -- that there was no sign and there was no record of what -- -- -- actually what did in the sessions or not it's a junket.
And and and when you're asking people to sacrifice and and remember 2010 to -- that -- people losing their houses are people losing their jobs.
And yet these government employees are spending money like.
-- I can't.
Use the analogy that comes to mind because the FCC would be upset with me but look what book but they're blowing money in the money doesn't belong to down.
And in -- we're asking all the folks do sequestration.
To tighten their belt I think it would -- the GSA.
Or -- the DA.
I think any government agency I'm so tired of having here at the hearings are necessary but they're not sufficient.
We have to do more than just have a hearing and then fly home and forget -- -- -- I think so I see is that here's some -- we need to change to guidelines sent to intercept.
Guidelines really he didn't know this was -- okay he knows just say you know terabyte tape this morning for the American people.
He didn't know that it was stealing Eminem still assay -- somebody else authorized -- on -- -- president.
But why can change guidelines -- What is wrong with the with the federal government that doesn't get that this is just -- from the kept going -- why do you -- to tell you.
That was my appointed inspector general -- the answered every saying it in DC is more training a webinar if we only did a better job of telling you this was -- You should have employees that need to be told that this was wrong there's no training that will fix.
Bad character and -- -- IRS has been around writer for well over a hundred years if they don't know by now.
If they don't know by now that that that that they're not popular that they are very invasive there were about to give them a lot more -- with respect to health.
They need to be good stewards of the trust that they haven't figured that -- -- now which they have not that we need another way of collecting revenue in this country.
Are we talked about -- I'm conferences cost one million dollars -- people are getting laid off from the US attorney's office South Carolina there -- 2609.
IRS managers at that site look I want a limb by six every single person -- -- knew that was going on all way to the top they all know what football complicit -- -- just look the other way.
No one had the guts to sort of step up and say not even the committee what first hit commissioner financing got to sit around -- and 2006 -- nine people in the party and the taxpayer dime but nothing he says -- They all look the other way.
That's why I say it's systemic it's cultural.
It -- it's a character issues -- cannot be fixed with a recommendation from the inspector general or more training.
That you you you can't.
If you don't know that this is wrong while you're doing it while you're proving it while you're flying to -- if you do not know.
That this is wrong then you don't need to work for the people and that's what government work used to -- public service now and use that phrase people laugh.
Because they see things like this conference and Anaheim.
-- we know we got a lot of challenges as the republic but if we don't restore people's trust.
In government in the people who worked at it we are finished it and we need to do more than just have a hearing that hearing is great my colleagues -- a really good job.
But they looked that.
More viewers want to see action what are you going to do now.
-- and thank you sir.
Hope you feel better to have well thank you.
