Obama Administration Flips the Bird to Taxpayers

GSA holds conference at luxurious Opryland as House convenes hearing.

The embattled General Services Administration isn’t exactly taking its lumps.

While a House panel convenes a hearing Wednesday morning to hammer the free-spending GSA for its frequent and costly conferences, the GSA will be holding yet another conference — this one at the sprawling Opryland convention center in Nashville, Tenn.

The 2012 GSA SmartPay Training Conference runs from Tuesday to Thursday this week. It’s for banks investing in the agency’s so-called SmartPay system, but also invites a range of officials within GSA.

The visuals of the Nashville conference will likely prove irresistible to lawmakers who are expected Wednesday to point to the gathering as a prime example of GSA’s over-spending.
