This site -- shared there I say -- slamming President Obama according to a new oversight committee report the president has ignored thousands and thousands of recommendations.
From his administration's -- -- watch stocks.
Recommendations that would save federal agencies 67.
Billion dollars here.
That would cover almost 80% of the sequestration.
Cuts -- as we say slow growth however Tyson joins us IC is there.
But thanks for having me on Greta thanks for covering this growing problem -- now say it's growing -- -- exploding around six it's growing but put in perspective.
About 26 billion dollars under bush at a similar time that Henry Waxman chairman Waxman did.
This is not the only administration not to listen to their IG's and to and to lose opportunities to save vast amount cannot explain -- it's growing -- -- severe set IG is inspector general is that didn't do individual.
Announces of their departments right.
They are criminal investigators they primarily look at waste fraud.
From a criminal standpoint but of course along the way they find.
Lots of money and that's really what they do this -- 121000 men and women about -- two billion dollar budget throughout all of government.
But they are the non partisans they're working for -- and government.
They've identified 67 billion dollars -- pretty easily of waste.
These are the ones that have not been responded to the fact is someone go back 34 years.
Over a thousand days was a big chunk of the 17100.
Different ones and it's really a crying shame one of the testimony we have seen it.
-- that I mean you know what this is like.
Yet it's so -- now you can edit an analyst at 67.
Billion dollars and we're fighting over 82 billion dollars in the sequestration -- anyone made any effort to get the 67 billion dollars.
Yeah we would be fight over 82 -- whatever the differences searching for fifteen billion.

Everything that you can you really treasure that somebody's telling you will be cut wouldn't have to be cut.
The government still have to go on -- diet but this 67 billion is known.
When we look at it our our other IG's inspector general's.
And there are reports we're looking at about 7% of the budget that falls in this category which means there's about another 210 billion.
Per year of this kind of -- human idea of what what does have some waste that is not being attended to by the Obama administration that they've noticed sent.
Well probably one of -- that would hit home is programs.
And and in -- student loans there's a number of known.
Con games going on and it kind of goes like this.
You're you're on some sort of what we used to think of correspondence -- -- -- -- -- distance learning.
And they're taking advantage of the law where you can put all this money in tuition and kickback if you will a huge portion of it for living expenses meaning.
You've taken the distance learning course but they start paying for your housing.
On top of that their organizations and realize that they can put a whole bunch of people for -- -- terms into this distance learning.
And take half of thousands of dollars.
And it ends up being hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars these organizations that are doing this this is not the university but in fact organizations taking advantage of it.
Have been recognized.
And there's been no action to create the ability to catch them and stop them early and this is -- kind of thing that gives you don't distance education or pell grant had a bad -- -- -- to students who really do need is -- to get a legitimate -- turned Kanye get you got a letter he received a letter from.
From back sheriff Paul W is our next guest how he wants to investigate.
About the about he wasn't.
Investigate ice releasing those.
Those who never holding your thought I gonna do that.
Now when I say we I servant judiciary they were already announced they're going to do it homeland -- announced our investigators are gonna work with them.
That's the nature of my committee where the principal investigation and oversight committee.
But when we have committees in particular -- to the deal with this sub issues and overseeing justice and overseeing Homeland Security.
We're gonna work with them and they're gonna -- most -- -- I -- this answer for this that it is it called John Warner vice Ryan who's a very decent guy say you know come up here and tell us why YE -- released him.
And he says I don't want to -- even slept received the subpoena and -- shows up you can have the answer 24 hours or you can exchange letters and back and forth and have all sorts -- periods and spend days and weeks and never -- the answer that's your choice.
Greta as you know will go all the way through contempt to get discover what information he witness that he did this tomorrow.
I think you get this information to -- I believe we'll have it within thirty days Hackett and Greta I understand.
-- is important.
But it's yet another example of where the president is trying to you seek restoration is a political tool.
And this is yet another use of that trying to you know look at it is it I know is that this that this is a problem and we don't have the answers and if ever who have -- gonna try to go.
Out of its way to make -- so complicated answer to a simple question.
I don't expect to be complicated I expect when I told you to be the result the question is why is someone using.
At risk to support a political agenda that somehow they didn't have the money.
Unless this is there -- -- -- Greta.
