When House proposes this, Vogler rejects the suggestion outright, and Cuddy soon realizes that Vogler isn’t trying to save money, he’s trying to get House in line.Skidmore got involved last spring when he heard Catherine Austin Fitts, former assistant secretary of Housing and Urban Development, refer to a report which indicated the Army had .5 trillion in unsupported adjustments, or spending, in fiscal 2015.Given the Army’s 2 billion budget, that meant unsupported adjustments were 54 times spending authorized by Congress.Earlier this year, a Michigan State University economist, working with graduate students and a former government official, found trillion in unauthorized spending in the departments of Defense and Housing and Urban Development for the years 1998-2015.The work of Mark Skidmore and his team, which included digging into government websites and repeated queries to U. agencies that went unanswered, coincided with the Office of Inspector General, at one point, disabling the links to all key documents showing the unsupported spending.Therefore, she has been House's boss for at least 13 years, indicating that she was 38 when the show started and is currently 45.
