Pelosi Anounces Democratic Truth Squad to Expose Bush Administration's Waste, Fraud and Abuse

News From House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi
August 24, 2006

Washington, D.C.---House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi announced the formation of Democrats new Waste, Fraud and Abuse Truth Squad. The Truth Squad will be chaired by Congressman Henry A. Waxman (D-CA) and Dennis Cardoza (D-CA).

The Truth Squad will conduct oversight of the Bush Administration's handling of taxpayer dollars. Under the Bush Administration's watch, billions of taxpayer's dollars have been squandered, contributing to the largest annual deficits in our nation's history. Despite documented instances of waste, fraud and abuse, the Republican Congress has failed to provide meaningful oversight or hold the Administration accountable.

"The alarming amount of waste, fraud and abuse by the Bush Administration and the Rubber Stamp Republican Congress is egregious," House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said. "The Democratic Truth Squad will keep the Bush Administration honest by documenting and exposing waste, fraud and abuse. Democrats are committed to a new direction in the way our government does business so taxpayer's money is handled responsibly."

Today, the Truth Squad is releasing a new report on wasteful procurement spending in response to Hurricane Katrina. In the year following Hurricane Katrina, citizens of the Gulf Coast needed government to be at its best. Instead, they got the cronyism, corruption, and incompetence that has been far to commonplace under the Bush Administration and the Republican Congress.

"The way the Bush Administration has spent taxpayer dollars is shameful," Congressman Waxman said. "They've wasted billions and held no one accountable. And the continuing indifference of the Republican Congress has allowed this to continue unchecked."

"The Republican leaders in Congress and the White House have abdicated their responsibility to manage our nation's finances," Congressman Cardoza said. "Congress cannot continue to buck its constitutional duty of check and balances. Future generations will have to pay for the money the federal government is borrowing from other countries to spend in Washington."

Joining Congressman Waxman and Cardoza on the Truth Squad are:

Congressman David Obey (D-WI)

Congressman John Tanner (D-TN)

Congresswoman Eleanor Homes Norton (D-DC)

Congressman John Tierney (D-MA)
