Fred and spending

From NBC/NJ's Adam Aigner-Treworgy
Thompson got a good chance to tee off on one of his favorite
subjects: government waste and entitlement spending. He said that he
would like to take on all 100 programs listed as wasteful by the Office
of Management and Budget, but was referencing the OMB over the heads of
some non-politicos. And did Ron Paul take a subtle shot at Thompson by
saying he would cut the Department of Homeland Security, a department
that Thompson was integral in creating by acting as the Republican
floor manager for the Homeland Security bill?
