The hefty price tag for errant government spending: $2.3 trillion since 2004

The U.S. gov­ern­ment has mis­spent a whop­ping $2.3 tril­lion since 2004 on every­thing from Social Secu­ri­ty and farm pay­ments made to the dead to mis­tak­en col­lege loan grants for unqual­i­fied stu­dents, a cost­ly record of fail­ure that in many agen­cies has been accel­er­at­ing in recent years.

The non­prof­it watch­dog Open the Books.org recent­ly assem­bled a Top 10 list of exam­ples of how the gov­ern­ment man­aged to waste the $2.3 tril­lion since the sec­ond term of George W. Bush’s pres­i­den­cy. The Pen­ta­gon pro­vid­ed just one of the case stud­ies for 2019 errant payments.
