    Tom Schatz writes at National Review Online that President Biden doesn't appear to see evidence of government waste.

  • Since the beginning of the Reagan administration, the federal-budget submission to Congress has included a list of proposed budget cuts, terminations, consolidations, and savings, along with a management agenda. Every president since then thought it was important to provide this information, until President Joe Biden decided that there is not a single penny of the taxpayers' money being misspent throughout the entire federal government.
  • The Biden-Harris administration's $6 trillion budget for fiscal year (FY) 2002 is 37 percent greater than the $4.4 trillion spent in FY 2019, which was the last budget before the pandemic.

  • ... When he served with President Barack Obama, Mr. Biden was a key member of the administration's efforts to promote its budget on Capitol Hill. He was involved in the negotiations over the Budget Control Act of 2011, which set spending caps and helped to somewhat restrain the growth of spending until it expired. President Obama tasked the then-vice president with leading his Campaign to Cut Waste, saying, "I know Joe's the right man to lead it because nobody messes with Joe." ...
  • ... According to an April 19, 2019, Government Executive article about how then-candidate Joe Biden would approach managing the government as president, he had said the success of the Campaign to Cut Waste "would be measured by results, not rhetoric." He said it would "restore trust in government" and do "more than just eliminating waste and fraud . . . by instilling a new culture of efficiency in each of our agencies, greater responsibility, responsiveness and accountability." ...
  • ... This complete lack of interest in cutting spending began early in the administration, when President Biden sent a letter to Congress on January 31, 2021, withdrawing President Trump's 73 proposed rescissions that would have saved taxpayers $27.4 billion, including several that were included in the Obama-Biden budgets for terminations. ...
