The Federal Bureaucracy (which should not be the names subject of a 45 mark question) is often accused of inefficiency and waste by the American public.The biggest criticism often leveled at it is that the President lacks oversight of it and in fact simple has no control over it in some cases. With Obama asking for a further $38bn for the Department of Defense in the most recent budget it is easy to understand how people reach this judgment. However this story, which relates only to improper payments, displays an even greater wastefulness, with $125bn being wrongly paid by the FB in the last year alone! Great evidence for an essay on how much control the President does have over the Federal Bureaucracy.
