Damaging GAO report released as HR-3790 hits 101 co-sponsors
One thing I have learned in the last 2 years about U.S. Government reports is that legislative aids use them to make decisions and they base their decision on the "Page One" summaries. Just two weeks ago I received the following email from a congressional aid in one of the Round One areas.
"The congressman asked that I contact the Congressional Research Service regarding the Competitive Bidding Program. Can you take a look at this and tell me why they are wrong. I need to know because if they are saying it saves money and does not disrupt service then it is hard to sign onto a bill scrapping it."
