Let’s put Congress on a budget!!!! I have done everything in my power to get the federal Senators and Representatives to cut spending.
TRY BORROWING AT A BANK WITH A FINANCIAL CONDITION LIKE THE USA HAS:
The problem in Washington is not lack of revenue but our lack of spending restraint. This video below makes that point. WASHINGTON IS A SPENDING ADDICT!!!
It is obvious to me that if President Obama gets his hands on more money then he will continue to spend away our children’s future. He has already taken the national debt from 11 trillion to 17 trillion in just 5 years. Over, and over, and over, and over, and over and over I have written Speaker Boehner and every Republican that represents Arkansans in Arkansas before.

What if you had no spending limits this holiday season?
You could take that dream ski vacation you’ve always wanted…and buy all new ski gear for your family to take on the trip…wait, why are you renting a cabin? Go ahead and buy that cabin! And don’t forget the private jet that will take you there…
This is basically how Washington spends your money.
While you’ve been planning your expenses carefully, Congress hasn’t had a proper budget in years. It just keeps tacking on spending.
That’s why the 2.5 percent budget cut Congress agreed to a couple of years ago was so important. The credit cards are beyond maxed—we’re more than $17 trillion in debt.
When you hear Members of Congress complaining that they can’t find anywhere to cut—that even existing spending cuts should be undone so they can spend more—remember these little goodies:
- Government employees visiting the Caribbean on your dime
- Taxpayers paying for more efficient coffee bean roasting
- A “Star Trek” parody video for an IRS convention
- All this booze you bought for diplomats to entertain
- A video game that simulates a high school prom
These are only the beginning. In fact, Heritage experts have helpfully identified outdated or unnecessary government programs that could be eliminated so Congress could save $42 billion of your money.
So let’s not hear that there’s nowhere to cut. It’s time for budgeting—and staying within that budget.

A funny carton. Finally, Some Government Workers Who Want to Cut Spending April 23, 2012 by Dan Mitchell In recent years, taxpayers have been victimized by huge expansions in the burden of government spending. Among the highlights (lowlights would be a much better word): A corrupt bailout of politically connected Wall Street insiders. A bloated healthcare […]
