Over at Obama's Transparency Central 

Over at Transparency Central The mid year budget review is being delayed. Maybe it’s just late, or maybe it’s being held back until Congress crams through another budget busting takeover of the 15% or so of the economy associated with healthcare.

The Club Gitmo closing plan is delayed for 6 months. At least this is a step in the right direction.

And remember the supposedly huge effort to trim a measly $100 million in spending over 90 days? This was supposed to convince us all about Obama’s dedication to fiscal prudence, but nobody’s bothered to put out the report. Somewhere in the morass of the Federal Budget, something has been cut by $100 million, so I suspect they’ll come up with something eventually. My suspicion is the Dept of Defense.
