1.3 trillion in government spending missing?

Sunlight Foundation has done an extensive investigation of USASpending.Gov’s data and found 1.3 Trillion missing. They’ve submitted FOIA requests to the administration for this data six months ago, but as you might’ve been able to guess the administration is stonewalling:

This is a pretty big deal given the sheer amount of money we’re talking about. Of course it probably won’t go reported in the news, so we report it here.

    Yes. Let’s raise taxes on people by raising the debt ceiling and borrowing more money, but DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT reigning in this spending and getting any kind of accountability first. We have some real Mensa alumni up there in Congress, eh? Haha.

    I don’t understand how the trillion dollar stimulus bill spending ended up in the base line budget every year since then. That was supposed to be a one time boost to the economy, wasn’t it? Isn’t that what they said?

      I think it was Reagan that said something like this:

      “The closest thing to eternal life on Earth is a Government program.”

      Fund the HAARP? Ummmmm – are you thinking of the SEALS that took Bin Laden out? Get your news stories mixed, or are you just constantly confused?

    • Tyler

      Yeah. If Bush is the one who had to fund HAARP somehow and you’re seriously suggesting that’s where it went…why is Obama continuing to fund HAARP then? Conspiracy theories aside…let’s try to view things objectively, eh?

    Why do people give criminals credibility by calling them an administration? This is a crime syndicate. They were elected to office and are committing crimes using the government as cover. They call them policies? They are crimes!
