Social Security spends $700,000 on bash in Phoenix

A Phoenix television station is reporting that the Social Security administration spent $700000 for a management training bash at the Biltmore hotel in Phoenix.

The actual PDF of a letter to the Social Security Administration from the House Ways and Means Committee is here.

The SSA’s reply letter to Congress is here. SSA talks about its "San Francisco Region."

The main media story came from ABC television station KNXV 15 in Phoenix. The story includes a telling video.

Of course, this sounds like a drop in the bucket as to the eventual day of reckoning for the Social Security Trust Fund. It seems like no one under 40 expects it to be there for them.
