red tape bureaucracies

Bureaucracies have successfully evaded congressional budget oversight for years by illegally hiring contract labor to take the place of employees, according to a Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) report released Tuesday.

Bureaucracies commit thousands of felonies a day, misappropriating funds not approved by Congress and expanding agency influence at a time when government agencies should cut back.

Bureaucracies freeze hiring new employees, ideally to stop expansion and cut costs, when under pressure to reform or adapt to budget cuts. Many agencies continue to grow despite budget cutbacks, however, by illegally hiring outside contract labor.

“While contracting for these services is contrary to the law, this practice has become so ubiquitous in government that it passes without notice,” the CEI report’s author Robert Hanrahan wrote.

Any labor that uses a “skill,” which is nearly every job in the federal government, is classified under “personal services” hiring. With few exceptions, agencies hiring without Congressional approval for the expenditures is illegal under a set of statutes known as the Anti Deficiency Act (ADA).

“Any federal employee who accepts voluntary services or employs personal services may be terminated, fined, and imprisoned for up to two years. But remarkably, the prohibition on personal services is rarely recognized, much less enforced,” Hanrahan wrote.

“The bureaucracy grows ever larger thanks to this bureaucratic ‘dark energy’ — an invisible force that allows government to expand at the discretion of the bureaucracy alone,” he added.

Hanrahan points out his first hand experience working for the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA).

“The NNSA … has no authorization to use program funds for support service contractors, and is under a cap on federal staff explicitly intended to reduce transactional oversight,” Hanrahan’s report states. “Yet, within the NNSA, over $100 million per year are redirected from programs to hire support contractors just in the Washington D.C. area.”

“When the prohibition is flouted, the benefits accrue mostly to the Washington, D.C. region,” Hanrahan wrote.

            Too busy working to pay for your welfare check.

          • darkhorse

            how odd…I worked a those years to pay for YOU to lay around doing nothing!

          • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

            Hrmm. . . I never knew that sitting on a couch eating family-size bags of Doritos qualified as work – I’m sure you were top of your field in that category, though.

          • darkhorse

            as I worked hard you sat with you big fat stomach hanging out with a beer can in your hand,, fathering how many illigitimate kids?

          • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

            I don’t drink beer, and I have one kid.

            30 years in the Ag industry doesn’t leave a lot of time for those things. As it turns out, 70-hour work weeks cut into the drinking time – who’d’a ever thunk it?

          • darkhorse

            who cares….

          • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

            Obviously you do. . . or you’d have crept back into mommy’s basement already.

    • darkhorse

    The federal government commits felonies?!? Say it isn’t so! I don’t believe it! And all this time I thought that they were working to streamline their operations and make the federal government more efficient and cost effective.
    One of the best things about our government is how they are always trying to lower the cost of what they do while improving the quality of their work.
    And if anyone believes a word of what I just wrote, I also have a bridge for sale in New York. It’s was only used once by a little old lady.

      • John C Carleton

        USA=military arm for the British Empire.

        • THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH YOU DON’ FA

          Which is also deeply Rothschilds owned and controlled.

          • John C Carleton

            Of course, but the Rrotyhschilds are only the face you see.

          • THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH YOU DON’ FA

            Well then lets destroy the layers as they surface.

  • billyjackeng

    I find it amazing that no one in the media or politicians when discussions occur about the debt ceiling, deficits or taxes ever mentions that the federal budget could be cut in half if the theft and corruption was ended.

    • ReverendDraco✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

      1 year’s Medicare fraud could put 60,000 people in million-dollar homes.

      How much did the Pentagon “lose?” 7 trillion dollars?

    • The Tuna Fairy

      Probably more than half
