Transparency, accountability and cuts are easier to talk than walk

The White House has announced a new initiative to cut government waste and reduce deficit spending starting with the removal of nearly 500 websites managed by the federal government. It is certainly a nice gesture.

Toward the end of the video Vice President Biden discusses transparency and accountability and how taxpayers deserve to know how their money is spent. He's speaking The Bluegrass Institute's language BUT as always, it is easier to make claims of transparency and accountability than it is to follow through on them. It reminds me of another video...

Unfortunately, Kentucky never saw that efficiency study. Wouldn't it be great if Kentucky could set the standard for reducing costs associated with government? Do you think this is possible?
