Why don't you answer questions candidly instead of deflecting to everything other than the information asked?

Our goal is to help people find the best resources available to answer their questions about the government. This blog is run by people who work for the U.S. General Services Administration, which means that sometimes we can’t answer specific questions about programs controlled by other government agencies, but we will always work to point you in the right direction.
