Oh and there's more! Much Much more! Dr. Coburn Releases New Report on Wasteful Government Spending in 2011: "Wastebook 2011" - Press Releases - Tom Coburn, M.D., United States Senator from Oklahoma Here's the PDF of the full report! http://www.coburn.senate.gov/public...&File_id=b69a6ebd-7ebe-41b7-bb03-c25a5e194365 You know what's interesting to me? This all sounds like EARMARKS. You know those things Ron Paul won't vote on but puts in bills? Yeah! And here's the game people. MOST OF THOSE ABOVE ARE NOTHING MORE THAN A VOTE BUYING SCHEME. That's why we have earmarks, and ridiculous spending like this. It's a way to buy votes in your state. Plus it shows up how ridiculous the idea is, that the government can spend us into prosperity. We spend and spend and spend, and do we get prosperity for it or just more debt???? The answer is more than obvious. Which is why we need to force a ban on earmarks. It's a first step in reigning in this out-of-control government.
