As Washington looks for ways to cut the federal budget, there are some suggestions to consider. There was a massive study just completed by the nonpartisan Government Accounting Office (GAO) that compiled a list of redundant, overlapping and duplicative government programs. There are also questions as to the effectiveness of these programs. This list will provide a template for government lawmakers in both parties as they move to cut federal spending and consolidate programs to reduce the deficit. Senator Tom Colburn of Oklahoma estimates the report identifies between $100 and $200 billion in duplicative spending.
