  • Where's the Pork?


    We just finished watching President Barack Obama’s press conference on his plan to save taxpayers $40 billion a year by reforming government contracting. And with apologies to the Wendy’s franchise, “Where’s the beef?”

    There was zero substance in that speech. Not one specific idea for exactly how he will achieve this alleged $40 Billion in savings by removing blank checks for defense contractors.

    If he were serious about reforming business as usual, he could have started with all the defense earmarks in the latest omnibus bill. But it looks like he’s gonna let that pork go right on through.

      It's an attack on Halliburton.

      If Obama wanted to save $40 billion dollars he would have made the last trillion he spent only $959,999,999,999.00
