Obama Saves All Tax Payers Billions
Wow, we have been wasting billions of dollars in tax payers’ money. Obama called for a detailed report to discover areas of spending that may be redundant or just plain dumb. What they found–546 such programs that fell into one of these categories. Even republicans are stating the obvious, “[This] makes us all look like jackasses.”

The federal government could save billions in taxpayer dollars annually by consolidating duplicative government programs, according to a new report.
The newly-released report from the Government Accountability Office “makes us all look like jackasses,” Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) told reporters Monday night.
The conservative senator said the report — which identifies redundancies in more than 546 individual programs — reveals why the United States is $14 trillion in debt.
“Anybody who says we don’t look like fools up here hasn’t read the report,” he said.
