    This is great. Our military spent $6 BILLION more of taxpayer's money and still failed to figure out where they spent the rest of the tax payer's money?? And all the GOP can do is recommend cutting and/or eliminating "wasteful" spending for it's poorest and oldest citizens? Really?

    That's just the tip of the iceberg bro. That Military Industrial Complex and Technological Ellite that Eisenhower warned us about? It's in full swing at the Pentagon.

    So.....because "everyone" knows there is waste within military spending, it is OK that the GOP will not conisder cuts to military spending?:eusa_eh:

    I am ok with trimming the military waste & corruption any day. Every large government program is full of it. Medicare lose $100 billion a year to fraud & we do nothing about that either.

    So.....because "everyone" knows there is waste within Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps, farm subsidies, "green jobs" giveaways, bailout and welfare spending (just for starters), it is OK that the democratics will not consider cuts to domestic welfare state spending?:eusa_eh:

    When the Special Commission has to initiate the "trigger" because they failed to meet the demands of enough cuts, it shouldn't be too hard on the Defense Dept. Don't get me wrong, I don't think a nickel should be taken away from weapons or arms, jets, etc. Just cut out discretionary spending...

    And then begin the audits. That should find where the waste is going.

    I do agree with you so much. Just when has the government taken waste and fraud seriously enough to do anything about it? The government cannot audit or investigate it's own. Private companies should be finding the waste and funding should be cut that exact amount.
