When will the public demand the end of government waste of the money they confiscate from us ?

Examples like this are rampant

“One Amtrak employee spent much of his time in the office sending  emails to  women he met through a half-dozen online dating sites and  claimed overtime pay  for hours he spent officiating high school sporting  events. Another worker may  have received more than $100,000 in bogus  overtime, records show”

   We pay for that.

Amtrak lost  $85 Million last year on food services alone and Almost A BILLION DOLLARS of TAXPAYERS MONEY IN THE LAST 10 YEARS. “Over the last 10 years, these losses have amounted to a staggering $833.8 million,” said Mica. “It costs passengers $9.50 to buy a cheeseburger on Amtrak, but the cost to taxpayers is $16.15. Riders pay $2 for a Pepsi, but each of these sodas costs the U.S. Treasury $3.40.” Thats just on food services. The total cost of the amtrak boondoggle is incalculable.

Obama want to double down on Amtrak. With Amtrak siphoning at least $1.6 billion per year just to provide the current level of mediocre and underutilized service. http://www.heritage.org/research/reports/2011/03/president-obama-sees-amtrak-as-key-to-americas-transportation

Thats just amtrak:  There are at Least 50 examples of government waste only a mouse click away.

A couple of my favorites

Lawmakers diverted $13 million from Hurricane Katrina relief spending to build a museum celebrating the Army Corps of Engineers — the agency partially responsible for the failed levees that flooded New Orleans.[43]

Congress appropriated $20 million for “commemoration of success” celebrations related to Iraq and Afghanistan.[37]

The state of Washington sent $1 food stamp checks to 250,000 households in order to raise state caseload figures and trigger $43 million in additional federal funds.[35

Fraud related to Hurricane Katrina spending is estimated to top $2 billion. In addition, debit cards provided to hurricane victims were used to pay for Caribbean vacations, NFL tickets, Dom Perignon champagne, “Girls Gone Wild” videos, and at least one sex change operation.[23]

More than $13 billion in Iraq aid has been classified as wasted or stolen. Another $7.8 billion cannot be accounted for.[22]

And on and on- Yet the new obamacare law will  grant massive new powers to the IRS,  backed up by billions of dollars in additional taxpayer funds for the hiring of  thousands of new IRS agents, examiners, and other personnel  and Hire up to 16000 new IRS thugs to enforce it.

How long will we tolerate this ?
