The President discusses the measures he is taking to cut wasteful spending in our government. I have always been of the belief that if governed properly the government can be a force for good. In fact, it is this belief that drives my political ideology. I refuse to believe that the government is bad in every case and can never be a useful tool for improving our country.

From the White House Blog:

With the process of going through the budget line by line in full swing, the President uses his Weekly Address to give some examples, big and small, of how the Administration is working to cut costs and eliminate waste. The President also announces two new key appointments, Jeffrey Zients as Chief Performance Officer and Aneesh Chopra as Chief Technology Officer, who will be invaluable in streamlining the way government functions through efficiency and innovation.
