Protect Whistleblowers: Often the best source of information about waste, fraud, and abuse in government is an existing government employee committed to public integrity and willing to speak out. Such acts of courage and patriotism, which can sometimes save lives and often save taxpayer dollars, should be encouraged rather than stifled. We need to empower federal employees as watchdogs of wrongdoing and partners in performance. Barack Obama will strengthen whistleblower laws to protect federal workers who expose waste, fraud, and abuse of authority in government. Obama will ensure that federal agencies expedite the process for reviewing whistleblower claims and whistleblowers have full access to courts and due process.
He’s for laws that support people exposing abuse of authority in government, huh?
Man, Obama, if there’s a reason we need to do this stuff, just tell us. Come clean. Ask for trust. I might give it to you.
What you can’t do is tell me nothing’s happening when it’s a massive mess. Again, either you lied to me or you have no idea what the hell is going on during your watch.
