The Sewer of HUD and Its (R) Protectors

This is the kind of crap that wars should be fought over.

Congress has consistently rewarded Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) officials with bigger budgets despite their demonstrated inability to manage tax dollars efficiently...Instead of cutting the department’s funding when it failed each year since 2014 to obtain an audit opinion from its Inspector General (IG), Congress has increased HUD’s budget, to $47.3 billion in 2016....

The Inspector General for HUD is unable to audit the agency at all because its books are such a mess. 

There's every reason to suspect that 'the books are a mess' because that's what HUD management wants, by the way.

Anyhow, the REPUBLICAN CONGRESS, led by Paul Ryan, has been feeding these cancers more and more money every year.

...Congress has failed to impose any penalties on HUD, and Republican chairmen of the Senate and House committees that oversee the sprawling department aren’t eager to say why, either failing to respond to the Daily Caller News Foundation Investigative Group’s requests for comment or outright refusing to do so...
