Tell Congress: Publish Federal Credit Card Transactions Online!

It's time for the American People to provide the oversight needed to thoroughly and regularly review federal charge card transactions, report abuse, and see that employees are fired.

The GSA’s SmartPay program has been rife with waste and fraud since it first began providing charge cards to federal agencies in 1998.

Transactions for cruises, household appliances, lingerie, dating services, brothels, jewelry, and personal computers have appeared on executive agency credit card statements in recent years.

A June 25 Associated Press report noted that I.R.S. charge cards were recently used to purchase expensive steak dinners, wine, baby clothing, as well as internet pornography.

These things stated, it’s time for Congress to end such clear and ongoing abuse of taxpayer dollars.

Since laws designed to punish those who improperly use federal charge cards already exist, the trouble is with the current, insufficient auditing process.

Rather than leave oversight to government alone, Congress must pass legislation that would require all federal credit card transactions – with the exception of those that relate to the security of the nation – to be published online and subject to public review.

It’s time for the American People to provide the oversight needed to thoroughly and regularly review federal charge card transactions, report abuse, and see that employees are fired under the"Government Charge Card Abuse Prevention Act of 2012."

With the federal government $16.6 trillion in debt, Congress must do everything in its power to eliminate waste and fraud. There are no excuses.

Take action! Demand that the United States Congress pass a law requiring that all government credit card statements be subject to public review! Excepting only transactions relating to national security, lawmakers must mandate that every credit charge from every government agency be published online.

Stop the waste. I pay enough taxes already. Stop the fraud. We need accounting to end the freeloading in the GSA. Stop the abuse. Cut the budget of the GSA and make them pay just like the military. Abuse it and loose your job with some nice jail time.

This is a lot of BS! AND IT NEEDS TO BE STOPPED NOW, RIGHT NOW! I am tired of the corruption & theift. Everyone within the IRS that is involved in this misuse of credit cards needs to be prosecuted for theift & jailed. Also those responcable for the attacking conservitive groups must be jailed as well AND ALL THOSE INVOLVED WITHIN THE BARACK OBAMA ADMIN. INCLUDING BARACK NEED TO BE TRIED, IMPRISONED & FINED! Everyone involved needs to be brought to light & imprisoned for the crimes commited. I am sick of inaction....GET TO WORK NOW! GET OFF YOUR *SS AND GET TO WORK NOW!
