ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Last April the Government Accountability Office reported that the U.S. government made $125.4 billion in improper payments during the year 2010. The announcement made a bit of a splash, but what has been done about it?

I haven’t heard of a thing. Apparently, the administration has made no effort to stop the waste or to encourage a culture of frugality. Far from it: The president and his wife traveled to Martha’s Vineyard on separate airplanes. Why does some Republican presidential candidate not promise to reduce by at least half this annual hemorrhage of funds, which increases every year? I’ve yet to hear the subject mentioned in the debates.
