Stop politicians’ spending

By From page A8 | February 09, 2013

I am sick and tired of hearing the politicians saying in all media that the problem is “spending.” It is about time they look in the mirror and see what the government spends our money on.

How about they rescind the pay raises they voted for themselves in the past five years? How about reducing the size of their offices in Washington, D.C., and their home states? Can’t they find cheaper rates? How about cutting the staffs in these offices and outsourcing the jobs overseas so as not to raise unemployment? How about cutting retirement benefits for them and their staff members? And why not rescind the free travel costs spent on the trips back and forth to the Capitol? It would keep them in Washington, D.C., to do their jobs better.

And by the way, let us take away the free franking privilege they use on junk mail and help the U.S. Postal Service stop the losses.

    Obviously, all spending can't be stopped. But why can't economies and efficiencies be continually sought? Why can't duplicitous and failed programs along with whole departments be stopped and eliminated? We all saw the young indolent lout of a GSA worker making rap videos on the public's time praising waste and fraud, contempt for taxpayers along with mindless adulation of one Hussein Obama. All of this was revealed before the election with unemployment and inflation going up since King Obama took office, yet people still approve---this as it gets worse for them.
