    Less money for dead people: Obama signs waste law - Yahoo! News

    I am truly shocked. Aren't the dead an important voting bloc for the Dems? :lol:

    Also - anyone notice any group missing from the "improper payments" category?

    Any President supporting the elimination of wasteful government spending is OK in my book. I wonder why previous Presidents haven't taken this on?

    No doubt tuning-in to Porky Limbaugh, for today's thinking-"orders".

    ****

    Maybe the 'Baggers are havin' a BU$HCO Bonu$-Buck$ Party, somewhere.

    :confused:

    Oh I'm all in favor of cutting government waste. The irony here is that $110 billion was paid fraudulently, but this new bill will catch less than half. What's an acceptable percentage to you?

    Aren't there audit controls within the bureaucracy now? Could it be possible that people are not doing their job? Or is the entire system so corrupt and wasteful that we need auditors to audit the auditors?

    No mention of the missing subgroup. Anyone?

    I haven't listened to Limbaugh since the 90's. I get all the good stuff here.

    Even if we only catch 1%....that is still 1% more then we were catching previously.

    Only if the 1% equals more than the cost of the dept.

    Fair enough. So, you support this new legislation?
