> see what the fed wastes money on

Yes, there's tremendous waste in the public sector.

But I've worked for large private enterprises most of my career, and there is astronomical waste there too.

I'd bet a year's salary that the waste in large private organizations is far greater than in large government organizations.

Public waste bothers me more, as I can’t opt out of it. Private waste? I can just choose not invest in that company (or short them if they’re public).
