U.S. Sen. David Perdue, R-GA., is slamming the Defense Department bureaucracy in light of a 2015 study by the Defense Business Board which revealed the possibility of saving $125 billion of waste at the Pentagon over five years.

“It’s disappointing to learn that a recent study exposing inefficiencies in our military’s bureaucracy was not brought forth to the public,” Perdue said. “These findings are not surprising, however, given the tremendous growth of the overall federal government bureaucracy under our last two presidents. I am optimistic because this study shows that the potential exists for restructuring the Pentagon’s budget to ensure every dollar is being used as effectively as possible. I look forward to working with President-elect Donald J. Trump and Gen. James Mattis to rebuild our military and rein in our oversized federal government.”
