SAVE Program is great, IF actions are taken on the many good IDEAs submited by dedicated Federal Employees. Right now, totals appear close to 18,000 IDEAS compared to 38,000 in FY09.

Citizen Outreach Infomercials

Produce government effectiveness infomercials for public broadcast. We could do a much better job at marketing government services. We risk losing our nation and freedom when all the public hears is the constant derision of government services. It has become vogue in the last decade to attack our government institutions without reference to the good we do every day. Soldiers, sailors, inspectors, law enforcement, controllers, ...more »
