An Aggravating Reminder of Government Waste on Tax Day

How could anyone complain about having zero increase in government spending (I know, libs/progs/Marxists need increased spending like normal people need oxygen)? If 3.4% increase each year gets us out of debt in 10 years, how soon if we freeze spending today? What the hell is wrong with politicians? I think they are all brain dead.

DO THE MATH, the U.S. CURRENT debt burden cannot be erased in less than 50 years, AND we are adding to it. We would do well to first BALANCE the budget.

Busy filling teir OWN pockets; Have you EVER seen a politician go bankrupt or end up with less money in his pocket than when he started? They are all money grubbing leeches on society, but then that's redundant because MOST are lawyers or FAILED lawyers like the thug in the white house.

Remember the Spending Quiz from 2010, which asked people to guess whether absurd examples of government waste were true or false?

Well, we have a new video on government waste, though bureaucrats and politicians have become so profligate it doesn’t even bother to trick people with fake examples.

While very well done, I do have two small complaints about the video.

First, it asks whether we should cut spending or raise taxes to deal with the national debt. I think that’s too narrow. We shouldn’t be wasting money even if the budget was balanced and there...
