Goverment Census

Community Member kudos icon + Community member

Every decade we complete a census of our citizenry, but we don't conduct a census of our government. Every 10 years we should conduct a census of EVERY program and uncover the redundancy, overlaps, and out of date programs that continue to live on and eat budget dollars when the need is either gone or being handled elsewhere. Mission alignment and strategic spending are key, but this is not a process that should be handled by Congress. We need real auditors.

I agree to have my idea, not my name or information, posted online. YES
