Government spends to cut spending

This is ridiculous. A $20 million contract, at $90,000 per day, for an independent consultant, who is going to tell our federal government how to find $4 billion in cuts to balance the federal budget.

This is ridiculous. A $20 million contract, at $90,000 per day, for an independent consultant, who is going to tell our federal government how to find $4 billion in cuts to balance the federal budget.

Come on, now. What about the working class? I’m sure we could give the same advice as any “super-consultant” at a fraction of the price, and time.

It simply comes down to spending priorities. Ask the average person where the money should go. It’s simple and does not need to be complicated.

The people in government who are in charge of spending, have proven they are not good at it. The reason for that is that they did not work with us.

What kind of advice could this consultant give us for such a huge price tag? Probably along the lines of “don’t spend more money on subs, warplanes, large-scale companies and the wages of your officials.”

There you go, I just saved us a couple billion dollars.
