American Bureaucracy and Its Budgetary Decisions

One should not think that the United States is the most effective state system, and officials think only of the good of the country and its citizens.

On Christmas Eve, the Republicans and Democrats in Congress after a huge debate, agreed to finance the state budget. Unemployed US citizens became the first victims of the compromise, who were deprived of weekly benefits from $150 to $300. As a result, only in January, 1.3 million people didn’t receive checks. This surprise from Congress and the White House affected nearly 14 million low-income Americans. Officials and members of Congress justify their decision by the need to save public funds. Democratic House Minority Leader even compared the budget of the country with an empty cabinet, where nothing else can be cut.

However, the facts and figures set out in the last annual report of the Government Accountability Office (GAO) assure that the US government save not where it is necessary. GAO auditors found hundreds of billions of budget dollars that were either stolen or wasted or spent inefficiently due to duplication of various governmental programs. Examples of negligent attitude to taxpayers’ money and gross incompetence of American bureaucrats deserve special attention.

For example, National Marine Fisheries Service and Food Safety and Inspection Service in addition to controlling, monitor the population of catfish, resulting in annual overspending of public funds in the amount of $14 million.

Ten different divisions of the US Ministry of Defense use translation services from a total of 159 organizations. Eliminating this duplication can give annual savings from $50 to $200 million.

In 2011, Department of Homeland Security wasted $568 million on repeated research and programs, which were previously proven.

When commenting on the information contained in the GAO report, a well-known American journalist Steven Greenhut called the government wasteful and urged not to believe the promises of the administration to eliminate duplication of programs from the presidential draft budget. The only way out, according to Greenhut, is to reduce the government itself, which can be very useful. There are more than 2.8 million federal officials in the US, whose revenues are growing much faster than those of ordinary citizens. Richard Billies says that the Americans are surrounded by a sea of bureaucrats. He stated that during the government of Barack Obama, the size of federal government has grown significantly thanks to the new officials, new laws, and new regulations. In some cases bureaucrats receive 40% more for the same job, than private sector workers.
