“Accountability got mugged today when congressional leaders stripped federal whistleblower protections from their compromise ‘stimulus’ bill,” POGO said in a press release reacting to the bill today. “POGO will keep fighting to get federal whistleblowers the protections they need when they disclose the inevitable waste and fraud they will be witnessing.”
Shocking! Outrageous! Of course… if you believe all spending, even wasteful spending, is inherently stimulative, why do you want those pesky whistleblowers spoiling the party? They might get in the way of getting the money out into the economy faster.
