    When the government is in control, the sky is the limit to fraud, abuse and incompetency.

    Well except the Government has known of this abuse and fraud for YEARS and has failed to bring it under control.

    Wanna hear another abuse story?

    When an agency receives money from the Government it can not "save" a dime. You see if at the end of the fiscal year they have not spent their entire budget then they get a cut next year. Absolutely no incentive to save and in fact a major incentive to spend ever dime and ask for more.

    Both Parties have been aware of this for what? Two decades.

    :eek:


    Who will be the first to demagogue the issue and do nothing but provide hours of lip service?
