    CSE Praises Sen. Thompson's Efforts to Make Government More Efficient and Effective

    06/05/2001
    on 6/5/01.

    Today, Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Tenn.) unveiled his waste, fraud and abuse report, "Government at the Brink: Urgent Federal Government Management Problems Facing the Bush Administration."
    Paul Beckner, president of Citizens for a Sound Economy, issued the following statement regarding Sen. Thompson's report:
    "CSE is pleased to see that someone in Washington, D.C. is taking the issue of government waste, fraud, and abuse seriously.
    "In the past, we've heard the stories of the $400 hammer, and know that the government is wasting literally billions of dollar annually. Sadly, no one has ever tried to comprehensively address this issue. That is, until now.
    "With this report Sen. Thompson identifies many of the root problems facing government agencies. Additionally, he identifies ten of the worst examples of government mismanagement. Needless to say, we support his efforts."
    CSE has long advocated for limited government. Key to ensuring this limited government is to make sure that government is working efficiently and effectively.
