So you do not agree with we are hemorrhaging money and wasteful spending or this isn't the privy of Treasury Secretary?
Neither. Your assertion, without data. The feds are spending what they’ve always spent.

Some might say unnecessarily so.

Like all of Il Douche's and his spawn's travel trips, and billing govt to stay at his own resorts? Or are you referring to a ridiculous wall? Or maybe a vanity military parade? Who authorized ICE to pay a company owned by Betsy DeVis $700/child/day  to hold kidnapped children in a concentration camp?

He's 100% right. Redhats are just delusional. Trump has the Mierda Touch, opposite of Midas Touch. Look it up.

I agree they are delusional. But Trump isn't going down.  There's too much money and influence on his end, and impeachment will never happen.  WORST case is that he pardons himself.  It's unseemly, it's an obvious ploy, but according to most federal lawyers it's legal.  So while we can hate Trump for what he's done to the country, Spatial Ed just continues to look like a fool as he makes claims that will never happen.

Well, Il Douche is going down, one way or another. Even if it's 2020 and the RNC and billionaire owners throw their weight behind a primary challenger. But I think it's likely he'll be forced to resign or be impeached before then. Pence will sign every bit of legislation the GOP sends to the POTUS desk that Trump would, and would be better for their bottom line and less toxic at the voting booths. I think results of midterms will scare the crap out of the GOP establishment.

Nice yammering point, but like most Fox bullshit, it is wrong, per usual.

The word is "fraught" and no, actually the government is rather more efficient than the private sector in many things.  Witness medicare cost efficiencies versus the private insurers.

In another post you used the word "privy" when you meant "purview", so I'd brush up on your English if you don't want to be immediately seen as a troll.

I don't think you'll ever get him to resign.  His ego is far to large.  He'll never be impeached:  the democrats will never get the votes they need.

Bill appears to have a pretty standard right wing level of semi-literacy.

He's certainly better spoken than his POTUS.

Last I checked the government gets cheap medicare prices because they can force the issue through legislation.  Private Insurers can't.  I don't think that's a measure of efficiency.  In point of fact, the federal government is never "efficient" at doing things, because they have zero comeptition forcing them to be efficient.  There is no innovation driving streamlining efforts, there is only "cut jobs to make someone happy".  Look at the pension plans that government workers get, compared to the pension plans are basically non-existent in private industry as a good example of efficiencies forced by competition and actual adherence to profits and losses.

Not at all a good example. 

The medicare efficiencies come in the form of their 5% management/overhead costs, which alone are less than the profit margins of the private insurers.  And the non-existent private pension plans are actually unilateral contract nullification of negotiated pension rights by the corporations - also known as stealing from their workforce.  With the savings going into plowing un-earned dividends toward their shareholders.

Back to the OP, now that trump is about to implement a 25% sales tax at Walmart, he can afford to give away $100b here or there without causing the party of tea heartburn.
