    As opposed to waste where something someone else doesn't think we need to spend money on, but where we spent money on it twice.

    2013 Waste List: Diesel Emissions
    ~ $740 million wasted

    2013 Waste List: Financial Literacy
    ~ $31 million wasted

    2013 Waste List: Information Technology Investment Management (Personnel Assignment Management)
    ~ $39 million wasted

    2013 Waste List: Unmanned Aircraft Systems (Aircraft)
    ~ $5.8 billion (with a 'b') wasted

    2013 Waste List: Information Technology Investment Management (Promotion Rating)
    ~ $3.3 million wasted

    on n on.

    Without losing anything, just by cutting duplicative funding we can fund those projects we would cut otherwise.

    What difference does it make at this point, really? With trillions in debt which we'll never hope to get clear of, and the completely worthless dollar, coupled with government spending out of control, there's no way we can recover from this. Illegal immigrants and others on the dole compound the problem further.
