GAO Annual report on government waste.

A GAO list of Selected Federal Programs That Have Similar or Overlapping Objectives, Provide Similar Services, or Are Fragmented Across Government Missions. This is a 25 page report on how to trim the waste out of the federal government.

I found this under US GAO - Government Operations: List of Selected Federal ...

Now here is the big question ... the GAO has identified trillions of dollars being wasted .... why are these not the center of budget concerns and cuts?
