This is the difference between President Obama and predecessors. He creates non-profit corporations to govern use of public broadband in a way that raises funds for the USA Treasury. Can every other President say that? Can they say their handled USA assets to create wealth for the nation and relieve the citizens of the burden through taxes?

Oversight. President Obama is one of the more vigilant Presidents. He exerts a great deal of oversight and accountability with taxpayers monies. That was more than obvious when inspectors from the Department of Energy found extensive misuse of monies in the installation of weather proofing to homes. They found private companies invoicing the federal government 200% of market value for work done with substandard material. That tells me the contractors never expected to be discovered. This was not one or two contractors,this was many. Like what? It is not the fault of the government there was substandard work for exorbitant prices. That is the fault of the citizen and the willingness to exploit their own Treasury. At any rate, Obama believes in oversight and it definitely pushes back against defrauding the government.
