Have we heard one word about Obama’s czars since he enthroned them. Has ANY body done a check on what they are, and have been, doing?

Over the course of the last EIGHT (8) years we have paid out MILLIONS of dollars, per year, in salaries to these bureaucrats. However, despite the controversy at the time, if you do some checking, there has not been mention of them since 2008. One piece of information at that time was an article at Investigating Obama. It says:

Does America know how many czars Obama has in place? Does anyone know how much money we are paying out to them? Does anyone know how much money we are paying out as a result of their bureaucracy?  Does anybody care?

Unfortunately, we have done too little and it is too late to deal with the graft of the Obama administration. Where will we go from here?

When will America realize the cost of government and decide to do something about it?
