    Obama orders federal contracting overhaul
    President says changes overdue, could save up to $40 billion a year

    How can anyone suggest there is no difference between the parties, or that Obama and the Dems aren't 1000 times better than Bush and the GOP.

    WASHINGTON - Reversing Bush policy, President Barack Obama ordered an overhaul of the way the government hands out contracts Wednesday, promising to curtail no-bid awards that have led to waste, abuse and corruption investigations.

    Obama joined Republican Sen. John McCain, his presidential campaign rival, and other congressional figures to announce an executive memorandum that commits his administration to a new set of marching orders for awarding contracts. Obama said "the days of giving government contractors a blank check are over" and said changes could save up to $40 billion a year.

    I have no problem with this. I think it is a good move. But really? Saving us money. I doubt it. I'm sure there is a pork project this will get spent on. Does it really matter? Now he needs to go through every program and do the same. Doubt it.

    I showed people like you for 8 years all these bad things the GOP were doing and you didn't care.

    Now I show you Obama is doing the right thing and you don't care.

    Have fun voting for Nader or Barr or Mitt in 2012. :cuckoo:

    We're supposed to applaud Obama saving "up to" 40 billion when he's spending trillions on porkulus?
    Besides, "up to 40 billion " also includes "zero" you know.

    Saving us money does sound good but I think he will have to save a couple trillion more to make up for all the spending he has just started. Wouldn't You Agree?

    I just showed you Obama is cleaning up Bush's mess. Bush was wasting money. I don't care if it is dems or republicans wasting money, I want whoever is in charge to clean it up.

    I don't like it if/when Dems waste money either. But you guys are referring to good social programs. You want all the good government programs ended. You want the government to only defend the nation's borders, AND THATS IT. And that's wrong.

    The government should do much more than that. And under the dems, it will.

    Republcians will say it is wasteful spending. Well lets get specific.

    Obama just got specific and found $40 billion that Bush was wasting.

    Your move. Check.
