Folks, there is nothing jolly about Uncle Sam’s continued waste of taxpayer money on unwanted projects that will never be used. For these reasons, I’m giving my December Squeal Award to the federal government.
Congress’s New Year’s resolution needs to be addressing these problems and reigning in wasteful government spending. Part of that means funding the government in regular order. That’s why I’ve introduced the No Budget, No Recess Act, prohibiting Congress from going on recess if a budget and funding bills have not been approved ON TIME. I’m also advocating for the No Budget, No Pay Act, which withholds pay from members of Congress until the budget process is completed.
Uncle Sam’s bad gift giving is costing taxpayers billions of dollars for unwanted, unneeded, and unusable items. It’s time Congress gives the American people something they actually want for Christmas—a solution.
