Ben Carson Finds $500 Billion In Government Waste – Guess Who’s Going DOWN For It?

The left constantly freaks out when conservatives suggest that big government wastes money. They have been brainwashed into believing that somehow government is actually productive and helps the economy when in reality, they are a drain on it.

Liberal economic professors love suggesting that paying taxes somehow saves you money because they can’t fathom a society of free markets and people being responsible for themselves, their own family and neighbors. Reason being, they are not entrepreneurs and are on the dole.

According to a newly confirmed Department of Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson did a complete audit of the HUD department, probably to see what he had to work with after the Obama administration left the building. What he found wasn’t pretty.

The Daily Wire reports:

President Trump picked Carson to head the Department of Housing and Urban Development, whose budget grew by leaps and bounds under Barack Obama.

In one of his first acts as HUD Secretary, Carson ordered an audit of the agency. What he found was staggering: $520 billion in bookkeeping errors.

“The total amounts of errors corrected in HUD’s notes and consolidated financial statements were $516.4 billion and $3.4 billion, respectively,” the auditors wrote.

That’s BILLION. With a “B” folks!

No surprise really, since we just had an administration left that was more concerned with social justice issues – from letting Black Lives Matter riot in the streets to forcing schools to let transgenders into the bathrooms – I guess sound accounting practices weren’t exactly high on the list of priorities for the Obama administration. After all, it’s just taxpayer money. What is this “fiscal responsibility” you speak of?

I really don’t expect the federal government to be totally and 100% responsible with my tax dollars. But when I see just how bad these mediocre private sector rejects are, it gives me a migraine. I do hope that the HUD under Donald Trump and Ben Carson can make some improvements.

We are sunk if it’s just business as usual.

  1. Well where is the money that is missing , and who is to blame? Good catch for Ben Carson. This could be another reason the Dem’s didn’t want us to succeed. The whole lot has probley spent this , and more we don’t know about. More corruption discovered under the Obama and Clinton administration.

  2. I have been fighting nasty old Bank of America, their phony “assigned servicers” like Shellpoint Mortgage, Seterus, and even our own phony government agencies that are ALL in on this huge racketeering scam. Nearly six years now of fighting on the five (5) initial loans I was supposedly working with Countrywide Home Loans (all great loans with great cash flow and assets at the time up until the great financial collapse back in 2008).
    No one would even return calls or look into this matter, even with hundreds of letters and Emails to everyone now including the Trump Administration including Sec. Shulkin, and AG Jeff Sessions. Not sure what is happening yet, but I sent detailed suggestions to all, on behalf of ALL of us people who have been wrongfully attacked, foreclosed upon, harassed by the lenders and our own government with phony CFPA (what a complete joke), Fannie Mae, the state of Colorado which is really bad and totally unlike the great state of Montana, and our own, corrupt, nonresponsive, inept USDOJ!!!!
    Little wonder the great Ben Carson is on such a role as he is a genuine, true Patriot who truly cares about helping President Trump try to make American great again and turn back and EXPOSE all this corruption that I know the past administration was directly involved with. Just look at who was behind creating the crooked, inept, and useless CFPB and the head person who is really really bad and does NOT respond in ANY way to countless correspondence. What a complete JOKE.
    Semper Fi and Thank you so much Ben Carson- you are awesome and a true jewel for the American Cause.
