    Exactly, so then why are so many looking to expand the size and scope of the Federal Govt? There is so much duplication and thus waste, fraud, and abuse. No wonder we have a 14.3 trillion dollar debt and still far too many want to expand the role of the Federal Govt. into things like Healthcare.

    Imagine what us lowly citizens couldve been able to do with that money if we were able to keep it instead of giving it to the Feds.

    The request for this report was a good move by the republicans. The report lists duplicate efforts across agencies that could certainly be consolidated without any real harm to the american public. I would love to see congress put these recommendations to a vetoproof up or down vote.
