All Obama Promises come with expiration dates…
…but this section of James Geraghty’s post is particularly instructive:
STATEMENT: “We will launch a sweeping effort to root out waste, inefficiency, and unnecessary spending in our government, and every American will be able to see how and where we spend taxpayer dollars by going to a new website called recovery.gov.” – President Obama, January 28, 2009
EXPIRATION DATE: “More than two months after some of the funds were released, [Recovery.gov] offers little detail on where the money is going… The government [spent] $84 million on a website that doesn’t have a search function, when its purpose is to ‘root out waste, inefficiency, and unnecessary spending in our government.’” April 2, 2009
If they couldn’t get the stimulus bill right, what makes them think that they will get Obamacare right?
Oh, by the way, a really great way to root out waste, inefficiency and unnecessary spending in government is to not have the government engage in unnecessary spending which invariably leads to waste and inefficiency and…unnecessary spending.
