Like a shopper buying everything on a grocery list twice, the federal government is wasting billions of dollars through duplication and redundant programs, Congress' chief watchdog warned, releasing its fourth annual list of recommendations on ways to cut down on wasteful spending.
The federal government doesn’t maintain a single list of all of its programs, one reason the bureaucracy wasted more than $100 billion on bogus payments last year, Congress‘ chief watchdog said Wednesday.
