Senator Pryor asks for Spending Cut Suggestions! Here are a few!(Part 23) (Royal Wedding Part 3)

 

Senator Mark Pryor wants our ideas on how to cut federal spending. Take a look at this video clip below:

Senator Pryor has asked us to send our ideas to him at cutspending@pryor.senate.gov and I have done so in the past and will continue to do so in the future. Here are a few more I just emailed to him myself at 3:44 pm CST.

In my past posts I could have been accused of giving just general ideas of where to cut. Now I am starting in with specifics that are taken from the article “Federal Spending by the numbers, Heritage Foundation, June 1, 2010 by Brian Riedl. He notes:  

  • .
  • The federal government made at least $98 billion in improper payments in 2009.
  • Washington spends $92 billion on corporate welfare (excluding TARP) versus $71 billion on homeland security.
  • Washington spends $25 billion annually maintaining unused or vacant federal properties.
  • Government auditors spent the past five years examining all federal programs and found that 22 percent of them—costing taxpayers a total of $123 billion annually—fail to show any positive impact on the populations they serve.
  • The Congressional Budget Office published a “Budget Options” series identifying more than $100 billion in potential spending cuts.

    2002

    Middleton walked the runway at a University of St. Andrews charity fashion show with ribbons and tight ringlets. 
    The 13-year-old student at St. Andrew’s School was a wash-and-wear athlete, playing field hockey, tennis and volleyball.

    (I got this clip below  off the internet and I did not like it very much. It attempts to put Kate Middleton in a bad light. I really did not appreciate that since she seems to be a nice girl.)

     

    In: Victoria and David Beckham

    David Beckham and Prince William—who is president of the English Football Association—met at last year’s World Cup in South Africa, and the two reportedly “got on like a house on fire, both personally and professionally.” The prince and the football star bonded in Johannesburg over the summer as ambassadors to England’s 2018 World Cup bid. Shortly after the Beckhams received their invitation, designer Victoria announced she would be sending over a selection of dresses as a gift to the bride-to-be. The Beckhams will be attending the wedding service at Westminster Abbey on Friday and also possibly a lunch for 600 people hosted by the queen at Buckingham Palace. They were not invited to Prince Charles’ ultra-exclusive dinner dance, which only 300 guests will attend.
