Why is anybody surprized? D C has had big deficits, poor government, major corruption, a mayor in jail etc. for many years. Did Clinton and Congress think that that government was going to fix something as complex as Y2K when they can't even do the easy things right? The District of Columbia is in such a sorry situation that even the smartest woman in the World (Hillary as some have claimed)couldn't govern it with numerous Federal buildings that do not contribute to the tax base and most of the high paying officials living out of the city. Why wasn't GAO on the scene 2 or 3 years ago when there was time left to fix some of it?
