Govt. Transparency Down in ‘09

From Fox News:

When President Obama took office, he famously aspired to be the leader in administrative transparency, but now he finds himself struggling to enforce it within his own government.

In fiscal year 2009, 17 major governmental agencies refused to release information, claiming legal exemptions, 466,872 times, an increase of nearly 50 percent from the previous year, according to a review of requests conducted by The Associated Press. In 2008, the government refused 312,683 requests made under the Freedom of Information Act, AP reported.

The AP examined the 2008 and 2009 budget year FOIA reports from the departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Defense, Education, Energy, Health and Human Services, Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Interior, Justice, Labor, State, Transportation, Treasury and Veterans Affairs; the Environmental Protection Agency; and the Federal Reserve Board.

There are a few issues that have to be addressed. One, Obama is a commie. Two, forget transparency with this administration, it’s not going to happen. Three, sweeper of the house, Pelosi, will not “drain the swamp”, she is the “queen of the swamp”, and the swamp is getting deeper and wider. Four, read the last paragraph and notice how many bureaucracies there are. Too much government, to many “departments”. We the people, must stop the madness!!!
