The Carnival Comes To Town
The Republican congressman who is taking over responsibility for congressional oversight called President Barack Obama's administration "one of the most corrupt administrations" on Sunday and predicted that the investigations he is planning over the next two years could result in about $200 billion in savings for U.S. taxpayers.
Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., the incoming chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, was bullish in laying out his agenda for the new Congress with Republicans in control of the House.
Mr. Issa, who as chairman will have subpoena power, said he will seek to ferret out waste across the federal bureaucracy. While he used fiery rhetoric in describing the Obama administration in a series of television interviews Sunday, he said he will focus on wasteful spending, not the prosecution of White House officials.
"Waste"= Stuff Darrell Issa Doesn't Like. I also like the way Issa calls the Obama administration "the most corrupt ever" without offering any examples of how, exactly, it is the "most corrupt ever." He just makes the assertation, and offers no evidence whatsoever to back up his claim. I'm sure that wont stop him from wasting millions, if not billions of tax dollars on investigations designed to ferret out "waste."
Its 1994 again.
