Obama Ramps Up Push For Government Efficiency
ABC News ^ | July 8, 2013 | by Mary Bruce

Posted on 07/08/2013 5:17:43 PM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Touting his government efficiency programs, President Obama today directed his cabinet to craft a management agenda that allows the federal government to be “smarter, quicker and more responsive to the needs of the American people.”

“Taxpayers deserve the biggest bang for their buck, especially at a time when budgets are tight and we’ve got to do a lot more with less,” he said. ”I’m going to keep on doing what we can administratively, but we sure could use Congress’ help.”

“Particularly at a time when Congress is saying they want more efficient government, they give a lot of lip service to it, and we’re operating under severe fiscal constraints, it makes sense for us to be able to redesign government so that it can deliver on the functions that the American people are looking for,” he said.

Obama can start by scrapping the disaster known as ObamaCare.

"deserve the biggest bang", "they give a lot of lip service"

Just what I thought. Prelude to governmental porn.

Oh seriously. Budgets really are tight and we're still waiting to see what you and your parasite mother in law and a niece banged for our buck in Africa for $100 million. We're still trying to figure out why you went there at all. All we got was tourist photos.

I shouldn’t be surprised, but the chutzpah of this man is astounding. He spend millions and millions of dollars on vacations for him, his family, and who knows else, and he talks about getting the most bang for the taxpayers’ bucks? Maybe he meant he is getting the most out of our money. It’s enough to make me bang my head on a wall. Grrrr.

He could resign his office and his citizenship... other than that... nothing good will happen for another 3.5 years.

Tell the Won to go stand in a DMV line, apply for a business or zoning permit, apply for veterans benefits, wait his turn at a DUI checkpoint, or buy some bottled spring water at a Harris Teeter.

What a jagazz.

Zero could have talked about ramping up push for government efficiency at the correspondents dinner and gotten a HUGE laugh. Bet Leno will have some fun with this.

What? He’s never had a real job?

hurdles and let the fuhrer do the job he was elected
to do. Seig Seig Seig Hail!

We saw the result of this efficiency when the IRS helped the Tea Party through their 501 requests.

No joke, but when I was a copy-editor for the China Daily, I had to edit articles with the same exact language as this ABC News posting. Looks like China Daily writers got promoted to work for ABC News. I recall meeting a taxi driver in Beijing who loved talking about his son working for an ABC affiliate in Phoenix. He even showed me photos of the newsroom. Nothing special, but for the taxi driver it was a big deal.

Do you remember when VP Al Gore launched his initiative to make government more efficient? Gore and Clinton called it the National Performance Review [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Partnership_for_Reinventing_Government] What a joke.

So Obama wants to be more efficient at lining the pockets of campaign contributors? More efficient at buying votes so he can win the House? More efficient at restricting the market economy? More efficient at eroding our personal liberty and Constitutional protections? When Communists say they want to be more efficient, nothing good can come of it.

“We’ve made huge swaths of your government more efficient and more transparent and more accountable than ever before,” the president said

Well, at least he has a sense of humor.

Partial Government control is Socialism.

Total Government control is Communism.

B. Hussein Obama is a Communist for his Obama’care,’ and his very frequent bypassing of Congress by use of his dictatorial use of Executive Orders.

BTW, if you doubt that Obama does not have total control of you, just try not paying for Federally mandated health insurance, or the fine that will follow.
