Obama seems to be speaking out of both sides of his mouth. He wants lots of stimulus (which makes economic sense) but wants to cut Federal spending (which is how he's going to accomplish 60% of his stimulus). The President-elect is either confused, or people don't really understand.

Let's hope it is the latter, and that what Obama REALLY wants to do is cut wasteful spending, and apply those budget resources elsewhere. Either to improve existing programs, or to increase the oversight of what is already being spent, etc.

KSBR simplifying

Ms. Killefer will have a lot more success if she primarily goes after the ineffective programs, not the inefficient ones.
