Waste, Fraud, and Abuse

Posted by madjillmom on November 10, 2011

President Obama signed an executive order in front of a beaming crowd to eliminate waste, fraud, and abuse.  He made it look like he was signing an actual bill.  He wasted some pens with his staging.  He wants to look like he is doing something to cut down on the government. If you go to and search “waste and fraud” you will find hundreds of announcements telling us how they are gonna cut it.  Remember when Sheriff Joe was gonna keep the stimulus from wasting money.  Then health care reform was gonna do it too.  Even as recently as 4 or 5 months ago, Obama appointed another board to deal with waste and fraud.  They always talk about it, but rarely does it impact.  Waste is $70,000 dollars worth of Obama books handed out in the State Department.  Waste is loans to most green companies and buyouts of car companies.  Waste is another Air Force One trip to call for passage of another wasteful stimulus package called a jobs bill.  Waste is another government committee/Super Committee after the Debt Commission did the job already.  Waste is $16 muffins.  Keep talking about it and don’t really do anything.  After all it is the speech that counts, not the actual cutting of waste, fraud, and abuse.
