No audit of the defense department

Wow. I didn’t realize that. The Department of Defense has never had an audit according to McCain. He asks the CEOs, “how long would you be allowed to stay in business without an audit?”

We’ve moved back to pork barrel spending. The Senator is obviously passionate about the subject. Hammes agrees. We don’t need expensive bridges in Alaska or a museum at Woodstock. Yes, Hammes says, we need a simpler tax code. He refers to a Wall Street Journal editorial that I’ll try to find later – basically we’re at 60,000 pages or so to describe our laws.

Zore, from Northwestern Mutual agrees. Deloitte (woo hoo) did his taxes last year and turned out 69 pages that he signed but couldn’t pretend to understand.
