Republicans want to cut government spending. They don’t just want to cut government spending a little. They want to cut it a lot…a whole lot. If you listen to Republicans, you will get the idea that almost every dollar of government spending, particularly spending by the Federal government is wasted on things we don’t need and shouldn’t want, accept maybe spending on wars.The tragic thing about this argument is that too many people buy it. They buy it because they have no idea where their Federal tax dollars go. They don’t appreciate what they are getting for their tax dollars because they don’t truly realize what they are getting.
The Center on Budget and Policy Priorities has just released a new video that sets the record straight. Watch it below or here: http://www.cbpp.org/cms/?fa=view&id=3854 Make sure that you show it to all your friends, especially your Republican and Independent friends. Make them watch this video then ask them what they think is a waste. What would they cut?
