Why the Tournament of Government Waste matters:
Our country is in serious fiscal trouble. Our national debt is over $20 trillion, we have over $100 trillion in unfunded liabilities and hundreds of failing and duplicative government programs that will burden future generations.
However, there is a way forward. Building consensus on areas like waste, fraud, and duplication can be a great starting point for bigger reforms.
Not only is this tournament fun and informative, but also promotes conversation on what our country’s priorities should be.
