President Obama, Do You Want to Save a Quick $10 Billion from the Federal Budget?

December 23rd, 2010

President Obama,

Might you be interested in saving a minimum of ten billion dollars ($10,000,000,000) from the Federal budget? All that would be required to initiate this savings is a stroke of your pen to remove one useless and redundant Federal agency from an executive branch department. Other than the jobs lost in boisterous congressional districts, I can almost guarantee that no one would notice the difference and those who might notice would be happy about the loss of the agency and commend you for your budget reduction efforts. I can almost guarantee that you would receive many rave reviews from those in the know in the affected business sectors. Such accolades would be lauded upon you for your budgetary reduction efforts, especially given the reputation for absurdity achieved by this unnamed and inept Federal agency.

Would you like to know who wins the title of the most inept and useless agency in the Federal bureaucracy? Last time I checked, this agency had a budget of approximately eighteen billion dollars ($18,000,000,000) and I’m certain that they have little to show for their efforts as well as our tax dollars.

If you would be interested to know where to find these savings, while at the same time improving credibility with the taxpayers for the wielding of your budget axe, please contact me. I would be happy name the agency of which I speak – and, as a hint, it is not any agency that I have blogged about previously.

I look forward to hearing from you.

PS. For whatever it is worth, it is not mean spirited for one to speak out against the waste of tax dollars even if they speak with a derogatory tone. This is true, because the waste of tax dollars in the U.S. equates to a violation of the People’s trust in their government. Furthermore, such a waste of tax dollars is a form of corruption – in my opinion. Corruption should always be routed out of our government at any lawful cost.
