    Yes, as everythign will always have some waste, fraud, and abuse. Private business has those things as well. We can't wait for perfect to pay our bills. And we always keep working on imporving and combating waste, fraud, and abuse.

    You don't pay for the waste, fraud, and abuse of private business unless you continue to buy from them. The comparison isn't close.

    From what I have seen for the most part it is private business/individuals that are trying to rip off the American Government.eg medicare medicaid fraud. 700$ hammers, etc.

    How is that helped by increasing the bureaucracies that missed it in the first place?

    Have you got an MBA, are you a professional economist? If not, you only have an amateur opinion, not facts...

    Granted... the group you belong too and/or advocate for; pays federal taxes on their booze and tobacco. Thats just about all the TAX they pay the feds. But then it kinda goes against the grain to pay income taxes on money the govt gives you... from others who earn it for you.
