The Seniors Coalition is demanding that the Obama Administration severely punish both the organizers and attendees of the controversial 2010 General Services Administration Las Vegas Conference where bureaucrats spent nearly $1 million of taxpayer money dining on sushi and treating themselves to $44 per person breakfast extravaganzas. The civil servants also filmed
videos for a contest in which they bragged about ripping off the U.S. taxpayers.
"These bureaucrats were living the high life on the taxpayers' dime right when senior citizens were being denied Social Security Cost-of-Living Adjustments," says Bridges. "As far as I'm concerned, this was a fraud perpetrated against every senior citizen and every U.S. taxpayer in the country." Bridges has sent letters to both President
Barack Obama and Congressman Darrell Issa, who is investigating the conference, demanding that not only should the leaders of the GSA and the individuals who planned the event be punished, but that everyone who attended the event, and who did not report the waste, fraud and abuse, should have their vacation days cut and be forced to repay the U.S. taxpayers for their share of the conference.
