Government waste has become such a vast phenomenon that it takes an encyclopedia to even attempt to keep up with it. Introducing Spendopedia. Today’s featured article addresses an overfunded Department of Agriculture intern program:
In September 2012, Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) revealed that the government had spent more than $2 million on an internship program, which only hired one full-time intern.
Multiply this small example by thousands and you have the looting spree that has crippled the economy and threatens to collapse it, to the joy of communist advocates of the Cloward-Piven strategy.
Spendopedia also features links to news items like this one:

And despite increased attention from the agency’s internal watchdog and its fiscal managers, the VA’s percentage of errant payments actually jumped substantially from 2.65 percent in 2011 to 3.4 percent in 2012, according to the department’s own fiscal records.
