The Government Is Wasting Your Money

Monday, February 25th, 2008

Here is an interesting article from Reader’s Digest, it lays out nearly a trillion dollars of wasteful programs and activities that the Government spends every year.  That is over $3,000 per American.  Maybe Americans wouldn’t be as cash-strapped if our elected politicians  and representatives would take some accountability and stop hemorrhaging money.  I don’t mind paying taxes when the are warranted, but it isn’t right when a government takes advantage of the “generosity” or the “ignorance” of its taxpayers.

Farm Subsides Misuse - $1.3B to Non-Farmers

Friday, December 14th, 2007

Farm

From Washington Post

Apparently the government gives a lot of money for farm subsides to people who don’t even run farms. The subsides last for years even if the land has changed ownership. The new owners aren’t required to grow anything, but still receive payment. The total amount given to non-farm farms, $1.3 billion, accounts for nearly half of the nation’s agricultural subsidy system.

This where I am supposed to say the Government needs to be held accountable for fragrantly misusing taxpayers’ dollars…but I know no one in Washington is listening. (except for you NSA)
