Senator Pryor has asked us to send our ideas to him at email@example.com and I have done so in the past and will continue to do so in the future.

Senator Rand Paul on Feb 7, 2011 wrote the article “A Modest $500 Billion Proposal: My spending cuts would keep 85% of government funding and not touch Social Security,” Wall Street Journal and he observed:
End TARP: Saves $4.5 billion
Originally described as a $700 billion bailout, TARP never approaches the capped price. Following the Dodd-Frank
Wall Street Reform Act, TARP was restructured. Within this restructuring, the cap was lowered to $475 billion, and
the Secretary of the Treasury no longer had the authority to reuse paid back TARP funds or sold assets.
The September 2010 Outlay of TARP funds report put out by Treasury comparing committed amounts and actual
disbursements, shows a $87.39 billion savings if no more money was disbursed.
