Finally — a Cost cutting Congress —

If you look through the list of programs that the Conservatives are hoping to cut,  it becomes obvious why our national debt is so outrageous.   Do we really need to give money to Egypt?….or, how about Ireland?…or, more locally, the National Endowment of the Arts?  As the list of spending largesse by our past Congress continues to be exposed,it becomes very obvious why our National Deficit is growing larger and larger, like something out of the worst science fiction tale.  Here are a few of the absurd ways that Congress has spent OUR tax dollars:

Economic Assistance to Egypt. $250 million annually.

International Fund for Ireland. $17 million annual savings.

Subsidy for Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority. $150 million annual savings.

The accumulation of debt that these programs represent cannot be allowed to continue.    Cut them all.

It’s encouraging to finally have representatives who are willing to stop the endless and growing spending by the Federal government!
