Hey Congress where is the oversight?

Expense account dinners, first class travel, luxury hotels and top pay. Sounds nice, right?
That's how a nonprofit group "squandered" federal funding it received from Congress to help veterans start small businesses.

A Senate investigative report said the group, the National Veterans Business Development Corp., aka Veterans Corp, spent just 9 percent of its budget last year on the small business centers it was supposed to start and run.

One reader writes: "The Veterans Corporation is not a veterans group or organization. It was created by Congress and not by military veterans. Even the use of the word 'veterans' in their name is tainting 'real' veterans organizations."
