TomBAvoider Posted December 6, 2016 Report Share Posted December 6, 2016 And if anyone doubts that there's money to be had in the defense budget - see this: the pentagon's own internal study shows $125 billion in waste on the beaucracy - we're not even talking about money spent uselessly on armies and weapons, we're talking pure beaurocratic waste by deskbound paper-pushers, who number over one million people (bigger than most armies in the world). So what did they do once they found all that waste in the report? Why, of course, bury the report so that congress wouldn't get ahold of it. Then destroy the data so that nobody could conduct such a study again. Not only are they wasteful, they're corrupt to the core. They needn't have worried - it's not like a Republican controlled congress would cut a single penny of the defense budget, instead - according to Trump - they plan on pushing an even bigger pile of money into this pit of waste and corruption. Meanwhile, the Republicans want to cut food stamps for poor people because "money is tight" - money never being tight for the pentagon though. I never want to hear a single word from a Republican about "waste" and "fraud" in the welfare system - they scream about every penny and penny ante supposed "waste" in order to starve poor people, but are dead silent about the real money and real waste going into the pockets of the corrupt, their real constituency. Pentagon buries evidence of $125 billion in bureaucratic waste The Pentagon imposed secrecy restrictions on the data making up the study, which ensured no one could replicate the findings. A 77-page summary report that had been made public was removed from a Pentagon website. “They’re all complaining that they don’t have any money. We proposed a way to save a ton of money,” said Robert “Bobby” L. Stein, a private-equity investor from Jacksonville, Fla., who served as chairman of the Defense Business Board. Stein, a campaign bundler for President Obama, said the study’s data were “indisputable” and that it was “a travesty” for the Pentagon to suppress the results. “We’re going to be in peril because we’re spending dollars like it doesn’t matter,” he added. Oh, but budget deficits! Obama is starving the military! No money! We're in debt! Cut food stamps! Why, where are we ever going to find the money to fund government - quick, cut out money for hungry kids! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
