Fraud, Waste and Abuse of Tax Dollars…..

September 21, 2011

Today there are a few stories about Fraud, Waste and Abuse in our government.

From the Daily Caller:

“But in October 2010, Gregory H. Friedman, Inspector General at the Department of Energy, issued a scathing report on Illinois’ weatherization program funded with stimulus dollars. Among his findings were that 14 out of 15 “weatherized” homes failed final inspection because of poor workmanship and 12 out of 15 homes contained substandard work that could have “resulted in significant property damage or injury to the homeowners.”

That means that the government PAID someone to “fix something” and LESS THAN 10% passed FINAL INSPECTION!!!

or from the Daily Mail:

“At a single Washington, D.C., conference, the department spent $4,200 on 250 muffins — more than $16 apiece, a shocking report has revealed.”

$16 PER MUFFIN!!!

and a video from FoxNews.

I have a nice simple solution to this obvious fraud, waste and abuse.  I want to know, BY NAME and picture the people that approved these monies.  EVERYONE that was responsible from the TOP all the way down to the last person that signed for the work.  Post their name and photo on the Government Fraud, Waste and Abuse website.  Also, ANY CONTRACTOR that “did” the work should have a review done that shows their “incompetence”!!  We should demand that these names and pictures be shown on all news programs as they become available. 

Privacy, you say??  These people WORK FOR US, they need to be held accountable.  In fact, if their name shows up on the list more than 3 times, all responsibility for disbursing funds should be removed and they should be demoted to JANITOR!!!  There is 9.1% unemployment.  I am sure, that some of those people would do a better job!!
