Saving Half a Trillion Dollars?

President Barack Hussein Obama claimed that he could save half a trillion dollars on Medicare.  But Medicare is only one government program.  In his 2011 budget Obama dealt with dozens if not hundreds of government programs.  If he really is so good at ferreting out waste, fraud and abuse then surely there would be a multiplier effect when dealing with the whole budget.    In fact, if Obama can really save  $500 Billion on one program he should have been able to save over a $1 trillion on the federal budget as a whole so why didn’t he?  Why was Obama’s 2011 budget $1.2 trillion in the red?  Where did that deficit come from?

Perhaps there was no waste, fraud or abuse in the rest of the government.  In fact, maybe Obama inherited from George Bush a federal bureaucracy that was so sound that it runs like a Swiss watch with 100% efficiency.  In fact since, after a year of looking,  Obama could find no waste, fraud or abuse in the non-Medicare part of the budget one wonders why we needed Obama or that much ballyhooed change at all.  Surely a third installment of that movie  Revenge of the Shrubbery:  When Bushes Attack starring John McCain would have done just as well as Obama.  That is,  if there was no waste, fraud or abuse that Obama could find and cut out of the entire government apparatus.  After all, George Bush ran the government for 8 years, surely he left some shoddy workmanship somewhere in federal government.

Makes you wonder if that $500 Billion that Obama claims he could save is vaporware, smoke and mirrors, illusory.
