Mr. President, here’s another cut

Inefficiency, inaccuracy and underuse in managing federal property costs taxpayers at least $1.6 billion each year, according to a report the House Subcommittee on Government Operations issued in February. Of course, this can't be put at the feet of the current administration--the federal government has been growing for years regardless of who was President. But this one could stop it.

It could even be a 2-fer if the Department of Education were dismantled and its property sold. Educational accomplishment in the U.S. has flat lined while federal spending has soared since the ED was established in 1979 under Carter.

ED is also an acronym for another common problem.

Murray sez:
I'm a little slow Anon. I don't get the connection. Just take 100 mg of Viagra and try again. If your symptoms last for four hours think of the fun you can have. It will also take your mind off our economic problems.
