Your "Box Score" editorial of March 29, citing a Government Accountability Office report, faults our Washington political leaders for allowing $124.7 billion to be paid out in fiscal 2014 to people who weren't entitled to the money.

This kind of scandal happens every year! Why aren't our politicians, including Rep. Peter King and Sens. Charles Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, apologizing for their mistakes? Where's the oversight and accountability? They let it happen year in and year out!
