Bringing Donald Trump into the Fight Against Federal Waste (Guest: Adam Andrzejewski)

October 2, 2018

Open The Books Founder and CEO Adam Andrzejewski joins the show to talk about how President Donald Trump can lead the ‘War on Waste" and help defend the American taxpayer from egregious waste, fraud, and abuse.

In this episode of the Heartland Daily Podcast, Managing Editor Jesse Hathaway talks with Open The Books Founder and CEO Adam Andrzejewski about Open The Books' new campaign calling on President Donald Trump to take the lead in the "War on Waste."

Andrzejewski says Open The Books is calling on Trump to begin posting White House expenditures online, cut executive agency waste, and report monthly progress to the public.

In the call, aimed directly at Trump, Andrzejewski says there are limitless examples of federal waste, including $1.2 trillion wasted on mistaken and improper payments among 20 federal agencies; billions of dollars spent conferring 43 days of paid time off for federal bureaucrats each year; millions of dollars wasted on federal grants that fund video games, sex education for prostitutes, and frivolous studies, including a $1 million taxpayer-funded project to study "where it hurts the most to be stung by a bee."

Andrzejewski says it's Trump's responsibility to start a nonpartisan "War on Waste" to defend taxpayers against the ticking time bomb that is rampant government spending.
