The DOD represents $799.1 billion that can’t be audited, and the Dept. of Homeland security has $48.7 billion that can’t be reported on. There is no reason to believe that 2013 or 2014 will be any different. Who has the legal responsibility to have oversight on these departments? Congress. Apparently Congress doesn’t have enough time to do this, but is on its eighth investigation of Benghazi and has repealed Obamacare 58 times (as of 3/2015). And 47 senators have time to take on negotiating a nuclear treaty with Iran.
