Hey, Mitt, welfare saved your butt as a child. Today there are people who are really qualified for welfare which is an opportunity that saved my butt when I became disabled a few years ago. It was a bridge between IBM and Social Security which took my paying $3000 and waiting a whole year! I am retired now on Social Security and Medicare which has a premium. You and Paul Ryan would drive people like me into the street,living under bridges…and a quick death! —GOW

Washington (CNN) — The Inspector General of the Department of Justice, whose office published the report on the botched gun probe “Operation Fast and Furious,” will testify Thursday before a House oversight committee a day after the report’s release.
More than a dozen officials at the Department of Justice and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) are potentially facing punishment in the wake of the report.
Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz is in charge of identifying and preventing “waste, fraud, abuse and misconduct” at the Department of Justice, which oversees ATF.
While pinning the blame on officials in both Washington and Arizona for allowing guns traced in the operation to “walk” to drug cartels in Mexico, the report by the inspector’s office also takes pressure off U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, whom the House, in a largely partisan vote, had cited for contempt of Congress.

Holder “did not learn about Operation Fast and Furious until late January or early February 2011,” the report said. FULL ARTICLE
