For crying out loud, give me a spiral notebook with a few pens and I'll have a new budget within two days.
Of course, most of them would be out of a job, but what do they do anyway except create more debt and chaos?

One thing for certain.  We wouldn't spend millions of dollars that we don't have spend.

$1 million on a fruit fly sexual attractiveness study

-$1.3 million for old fashioned x-rays of prisoners.

-$1.5 million on designing a video game controller

-$100,000 on taxpayer funded comedy group tour in India

-$547,430 on a dancing robot that connects to an iPhone

-$25,000 funding a course about "How to be happy"

-$145,000 on a sculpture garden

-$25,000 on an Alabama Watermelon Queen tour

-$697,177 on a climate change musical

-$10,000 on talking urinal cakes (just in case the boys need some company or to prevent drunk driving)

-$35 million on an old fashioned trolly car

-$150,000 for a toy exhibit

-$320,000 for robot squirrels

-$1.4 billion in improper food stamps purchases which included alcohol, condoms, junk food and diapers

We can pay to study the sexual attractiveness of fruit flies and robot squirrels but by all means please, lets cut the working hours for Border Patrol to save some money.

We are spending one trillion - yes with a "T" a year on people who are deemed "poor."  Since LBJ launched his initiative 50 years ago we've thrown away $20 trillion dollars to reduce poverty 4%.  In the meantime both parties are pushing to allow more POOR people into this country who will also collect on these freebies.....  we are truly people who enjoy playing Russian Roulette.

I wonder if after the 2014 midterms if they win both houses will this vote buying continue?

Ted Cruz and Mike Lee get another chance.  I hope they read Hop on Pop and the story about The pale green pants with nobody inside them.
No matter the color of our skin, we all live under the same laws, we all salute the same great flag, and we are all made by the same almighty God.  We must love each other, show affection for each other, and unite together in condemnation of hatred, bigotry, and violence.  We must rediscover the bonds of love and loyalty that bring us together as Americans.

Racism is evil.  And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans

-President Trump 8/14/17

Does this mean congress has failed again?  Say it isn't so. :politics:
"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."
Benjamin Franklin
