Ineffective Government Programs

Posted on: January 8, 2011

I Goggled “ineffective Government Programs and the following is what came up;  From this list surely even a stupid Washington Good Old
Boy can find a place to cut.  I am so against raising the Debt Ceiling.  And of course you realize that once a government program begins there is simply no end because the bureaucracy  created to administer the program finds ways to keep their jobs forever and ever Amen.  BB

About 341,000 results (0.28 seconds)  The following are only the first 30!  So don’t tell me there is nowhere to cut spending in the federal government.  Besides what the programs cost each year you have the cost and pensions/benefits the agencies and bureaucrats get.  Just think how many high paid high benefitcd government workers we could push out into the private market if we got rid of these programs.BB

    Well you have really hit the jackpot with this one. What we need to do is get this URL out onto the Internet where thousands of people send it to their representatives or better yet to Boehner. I hope I spelled his name right.

    It amazes me that these so called elected representatives have no idea where to start except with Social Security, Defense or Medicare and Medicaid. What a bunch of incompetents.

    Maybe we need to put this info on Facebook it seems Congress is really paying attention to Facebook lately. s

    And this was just the first 30 entries out of 341,000! BB

    I think we should try and get this into the hands of some Tea Party people. I mean really, this isa fabulous place to get ideas from as to what should be downsized and/or defunded. ss

    Good going BB
