So let me understand…….
The GSA (Government Services Administration) is tasked with the job of maintaining all government buildings. We currently have 45,000 buildings across the nation that are empty or mostly under -utilized. The cost of maintaining these empty buildings is about $2billion annually
Yet the Sequester cancelled over $300 million dollars in Veterans Tuition Benefits. Why not sell these buildings, save the maintenance costs ($2 Billion) and make a profit over the sale of the buildings and contents? How about we use the funds to cut the deficit or to lessen the effects of Sequester?
Maintaining empty government buildings? Or Tuition Assistance for our Veteran Soldiers who risked their lives in defense of our Nation? No place to cut expenditures?
