    Audit Finds Waste in 'Green' Projects
    Energy Dept. Acknowledges Problems With Outsourcing, Need for Oversight
    (By Robert O'Harrow Jr., The Washington Post)

    I'm pretty sure those that were screamin' for 8 yrs about lack of oversight won't stop now, right?

    Listen, Obama pledged to "call out" mayors and governors if there was waste and fraud in the stimulus spending. There has been massive waste and fraud and he has yet to say a peep. In fact he wants to push the stuff out faster.
    You cannot have a gov't program that shovels huge amounts of money through the system without waste. I don't care whether it's a Republican or Democrat doing the pushing. It will result in waste.

    Can you provide a link to the actual story? Or at least give examples of the waste found?

    Oversight is a joke 99% of the time. A team tells the organization where and what to cut from its bloated self, and then the same organization that hired them tells them to shut-up and stop worrying about it. Oversight rarely works unless the organization requiring it has not relationship with the program/organization being reviewed.

    That would require oversight.
