By the time his grueling fundraising schedule is done this week, all paid for by you, the sucker taxpayer, this clown will probably have racked up a $20 million travel tab. But hey, all that’s cool because now Dear Leader will announce he’s focused like a laser of “saving” us money by announcing a so-called “anti-waste” program. This from a guy who has his wife fly on her own plane when they go on thier 37 annual vacations.
He really thinks you’re stupid.
The Obama administration says it is saving taxpayers billions of dollars in improper payments to vendors and contractors, the result of a concerted attempt to reduce errors and instances of fraud in outside expenditures. To better coordinate the effort among executive agencies, it is launching a new online tool to cut waste.
The administration planned to announce Thursday that agencies have already exceeded President Barack Obama’s goal, set in 2010, of recovering $2 billion in overpayments to contractors by the end of September. The administration has already reported that the government reduced its rate of improper payments in 2010 and 2011, potentially saving $20 billion over the period.
The announcement comes amid a growing scandal over spending at the General Services Administration, the agency in charge of the federal government’s buildings and supplies. The agency’s inspector general reported this month that the GSA spent about $823,000 for a 2010 conference at a Las Vegas resort.
That $2 billion allegedly save accounts for about an hour of spending by the federal government. Don’t expect his media minions to point that out.
