The waste has become staggering

July 28, 2014

Estimates by federal agencies that they in effect threw away nearly $100 billion last year should infuriate taxpayers. It is our hard-earned money, after all....

All TeaPub complaints about taxes will be met with this disgraceful statistic:

Federal money (WELFARE) makes up 41.9% of North Dakota’s total state spending.

Without federal government hand-outs, this state would literally cease to exist.

Complain about that, TAKERS.

"It is our hard-earned money, after all . . ."

Actually, it's not "our" money -- since nearly half of ND's budget is federal welfare hand-outs.

I think it was billgrr's BFF PJinfinity who started the "ga ga goo goo" nonsensical postings.

Credit where it's due...

One little correction, day. That sarcastic liberal attitude is in reality a left wing liberal while imposing the left wing sarcastic attitude.

That's who I am...signed centerleft aka Duracell.

Nothing in this editorial was pointed at the right or left. Too bad that's what everyone wants to focus on. And I have no idea why any of you even waste your time on Jack. He/she doesn't do anything except regurgitate what the last person said, with a sarcastic liberal tone. It's pretty obvious Jack can't figure out an intelligent way to make his/her point. Facts be damned.

Worry about government waste and point to agencies that waste a hundred billion a year. There is a ton of waste out there so let us focus on the biggest ones first...Hmm. How about subsidies to the major corporations: It is estimated that the major corporations receive direct subsidies in excess of 100 Billion a year..... Or let us look at the tax breaks for major corporations at around 200 Billion a year......But, lets just look at one handout to "hedge fund managers"- Their personal tax break costs the US about 68 Billion dollars a year.... I can go on and on. The rich get richer and blame the rest.

Yeah, but it was OK when Bush and Cheney wasted hundreds of billions of our money in Iraq.
