FoxNews: Gov't Finally Looks to Cut Waste
With the sequester set to cut government overspending on March 1 by $85 billion, reports are now beginning to surface of government agencies cutting back on some of the wasteful spending that many free market advocates have been pushing for years.
As FoxNews reports, government agencies are looking to cut back on their travel budgets and conference spending. You’ll recall the stories over the last few years of $15 muffins and ludicrous parties paid for by hard working taxpayers.
AFP President Tim Phillips commenting on these reports said, “hopefully, we can begin moving in the direction of getting our economy moving by getting control of government overspending and debt. This is at least a modest step in that direction.”
While their are some attempts to paint the sequester as the end of civilization, this small cut shows that agencies and Congress can truly be more responsible with our tax dollars.
“We’ve just got to keep reminding the American people this is 2 cents on the dollar, for a government that is spending a trillion more than it takes in,” Tim Phillips continued.
It is up to each Americans who believes that government is overspending and wasting your tax dollars to make sure that this $85 billion in cuts stays in place. To contact your Representative or Senate about why you think the cuts should remain click here.
