(via USAToday) – “President Obama has added events to his Monday schedule — a Cabinet meeting and a statement on his “management agenda” for “smarter government.”
In a statement, the White House said Obama will discuss progress in three key areas: “Delivering government services better, smarter and faster … finding ways to reduce waste and save taxpayers money; and … opening up huge amounts of government data to give entrepreneurs and businesses the ability to create jobs and solve problems.”
Hmmm, “BETTER…; SMARTER…; FASTER…“.
Haven’t I heard that phrase before?
