Dept. of Energy - They don't find or develop energy sources. Since this usless organization was founded we have not gotten an inch closer to reducing our dependance on fossil fuels and foreign oil. They are a colossal waste of money and need to be closed.
The private sector is doing much more. The 2012 Ford Fusion. Gets 100mpg. That is how we will solve the energy problem. Not with a giant government debacle. It's time to admit that The Dept. of energy has been a failure.
Here is the first one there are plenty more wasteful areas. Including the military. Please feel free to add your cuts.
