Federal workers vie to save the most money

New York ( - Last year, their boss issued a challenge: Give me your best ideas to save money.

Their boss is President Obama, and he has opened the final round of voting on his "SAVE Award" for federal employees. Designed to streamline government by eliminating waste, four finalists are now vying for a chance to meet the president and see their idea implemented.

    The GObP answer to saving money: shipping jobs overseas, unfunded unnecessary wars, unfunded tax cuts for the wealthy, attacking main stream workers, no spending on infrastructure, and borrowing more money from China.

    The democrats need to use the republican plan for election victory: generate $800 million in undocumented donations including foreign contributions, buy a biased media outlet like Fox 24/7 lies, and scare the hell out of fragile voters.

  3. Randolph Carter, I'm no expert, but...

    Get rid of the military. They haven't won a war in 65 years (sending the CIA to overthrow less-than-business-friendly governments and installing brutal dictators doesn't count). Have a nice day!

    Can I get in on this. How about cutting 100 of millions of dollars out of the White Houses Islamic kowtowing budget. Let's pay prevailing wage rates instead of bloated union wages and benefits on construction projects. Let's hold the teacher accountable for the performance of their students. Let's initiate a lot of tort reform and knock the wind out of the trial lawyers.
