— The General Accountability Office continues its noble task of ensuring government transparency – James Warren (COMMENT: I should write a book about GAO. I worked for GAO for almost 18 years, the last 11 years of which at the GS-13 Step 1-10 Levels, currently $104,915-$136,387/year. I would focus on how the Democrats who ran GAO during the 1980s and 1990s used massive Republican-led budget cuts to get rid of the agency’s employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they had not promoted to GS-13 (currently $104,915) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $123,978) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $145,831) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $176,300) by age 40. I would use myself as an example. My Democrat GAO superiors a) forced me to take their early retirement “offer” in 1997 when I was 49 years old, b) gave me unfair job assignments, performance expectations, and performance appraisals, c) always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, d) did not promote me beyond GS-13, e) forced the GAO manager to retire in 1987 who had arranged my transfer from IRS, who had gotten me assigned to audits of IRS in 1986, and who had promoted me in 1986, f) kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and g) forced me to take a $20,901 (21%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. They ignored, dismissed, downplayed, and belittled a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970, b) job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, c) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and d) a job-related professional license when I was 32.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The General Accountability Office is an admirable but obscure federal agency operating in a world where Americans hate government and precious little accountability is to be found anywhere. . .NewsGuard, which rates the credibility of news and information sites worldwide, is swamped by lies and misinformation. We have rated 8,000 websites and can testify to how the internet offers more junk than ever. But we also find wonderful work, such as from the GAO. . .The GAO is a 3,000-person arm of Congress with modest resources and a reputation for high-class nonpartisan work, said Jim Jaffe, a retired Capitol Hill staffer who worked for the late Dan Rostenkowski, a legendary Chicago congressman. Jaffe’s accountant dad was part of a 1950s GAO audit of the government-owned company created to run the U.S.-built Panama Canal, which resulted in reforms, including the many so-called Zonians finally paying federal income tax. Most GAO staff members have graduate degrees and previous work experience, often on Capitol Hill. Reports result from a request by a congressional committee or a mandate written into legislation. Even amid the day’s partisan bickering, their handiwork tends to be viewed as gospel. . .Now, as then, GAO is a trustworthy source. There are many more on every topic, with tools to help with a question I get often: “What can I trust? What do you look at?”)

Even though I earned a) a job-related bachelor’s degree when I was 21 in 1970, b) job-related master’s degrees when I was 27, 31, and 48, c) job-related professional certifications when I was 30, 32, 41, 45, 47, and 48, and d) a job-related professional license when I was 32, they got rid of my mentors when I was 27 and 38, they never promoted me beyond GS-13, and they forced me to take their early retirement “offer” when I was 49 years old in 1997.)
