IS IT A “LIE” IF NOBODY IN THEIR RIGHT MIND WOULD BELIEVE IT?

One of Washington’s biggest lies about federal spending will be endlessly repeated in coming weeks by President Obama, congressional Democrats, special interest advocates and the liberal mainstream media. The myth is that the federal budget really cannot be cut except on the margins because government programs are managed efficiently, with minimal waste, fraud and abuse, and they deliver essential services that cannot be provided any other way. Two reports focusing on federal job training programs — one from the Government Accountability Office and the other from Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla. — that were made public Wednesday put the lie to such claims.

I mean, if Congressional Democrats want to go out and tell the American public that “government programs are managed efficiently, with minimal waste, fraud and abuse,” well. . . you won’t need to cue the laugh track for that one. It’ll cue itself.
