Amazing how much bull our government wastes money on. They should have their own economic version of Hoarders. I wonder if Obama is even aware of half of those.



Should be an interesting debate tonight.

i simply don't have time to go through all of those, and that's probably what they're counting on is the average person falling asleep after 5 minutes of this. But i did look up the davis bacon act cause i saw it on there and wondered what it was about. Basically govt contract jobs have to pay the prevailing local minimum wage...like the govt can't pay people working on govt projects less than what they would get in a similiar private contract job. What the ? i bet if i went through more of that i'd find alot more of this bull that has nothing to do with us being in debt.

And today I heard Romney giving a talk in Virginia about building more submarines then the pentagon even asked for. After I heard that it confirmed that Romney is "republican as usual" and I will be voting for Obama instead of Gary Johnson. Cause if we're gonna spend money we don't have, which we will no matter which one of those clowns gets elected, at least Obama will spend it on normal american people.

The government as a whole counts on the american people not having time to review anything it does.

I agree with all of them except for:

* Woodrow Wilson Center Subsidy -- $20 million annual savings.

I kind of like the sound of that one.
