Government Accountability Office Finds $100 Billion to $200 Billion in Overlapped Spending


According to a nonpartisan report that came out today, the U.S. government spends between $100 billion and $200 billion every year on overlapping, redundant, or just flat-out useless programs. The Government Accountability Office suggests that streamlining these could not only save money but also improve services. That’s a small percentage of the deficit but a serious chunk of money nonetheless. But will either party push for these reforms if they can’t claim credit for themselves? [WSJ]
