High Wasteful Budgets

Updated on July 24, 2010

More than Wasteful Government Spending

The following is an email I sent to Senator Bill Nelson, Florida. In a time when money is not real and every dime the government uses why pay the employees like there is no tomorrow? I feel as I did in the email, that all could be cut 30%, at least and these folks would live well. Also get the police out of those cars and let them use their own to go back and forth to work, save the gas and repairs on the vehicles, at the same time save millions.

Thank you for taking a look at my issue. I am having a very hard time understanding why these people are making so much money in a time when so much money is not there or even in a time when the money is plentiful. The following list is just a portion of overpaid employees. I also believe they are guaranteed a retirement when we are not guaranteed SS. These cold be dropped at least 30% and be in the park of reality. On top of that, how many are driving city or state cars and using city or state gas.

Below you will see the letter I received from Sen. Nelson, Fla.

This is just a partial list of the salaries in Fla. that could be cut. Tell me what you think because this is rampant everywhere my friends and someone explain why these people should make this kind of money in a recessionary period or any other kind of economy!

This is the BS letter I received from Sen. Bill Nelson, Fla. This is why we need to overhaul Congress and the Senate. Because they are in a world of their own and not in touch with reality.

Dear Mr. Wiley:

Thank you for sharing your views on Congress and the nation's spending priorities. As a member of the Senate Budget Committee, I am deeply involved in the Federal budget process.

Our nation is at a critical juncture. Increasing costs for health care and the recent economic downturn have left many people struggling to get by. Crucial funding is needed to improve infrastructure, boost the economy, provide for our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, and support our veterans. At the same time, emergency spending and outdated subsidies must not be allowed to continue indefinitely.

I firmly believe we should implement sound fiscal policies that will help reduce our nation's $12.9 trillion debt. That’s why I am an original cosponsor of S.2853, the Bipartisan Task Force for Responsible Fiscal Action Act of 2009, a bill that would expedite commonsense solutions to the nation’s long-term fiscal challenges. Unfortunately, the legislation did not receive the necessary 60 votes to pass when it was offered as an amendment in the Senate.

It is essential that we break the log jam that has ensnared Congress for over a decade and threatens the solvency of the Federal government. That’s why I supported the creation of the bipartisan National Commission on Fiscal Responsibility and Reform. The commission is comprised of private citizens and elected officials from across the political spectrum who are tasked with recommending solutions to the nation’s long-term fiscal challenges. I am hopeful their recommendations will jump start debate on how to improve the nation’s fiscal outlook.

As the Senate considers appropriations bills and measures to improve the state of our economy, I will work to ensure that spending reflects the values and priorities of Floridians. Please do not hesitate to contact me in the future.

Sincerely,
Senator Bill Nelson

There has NEVER been another 1st Lady in the White House at any time who has created such a staff and they are used soely for the 1st Lady's Social Life! Hillary had three, Jackie Kennedy one, Laura Bush one. I guess this is the way one spends money that lost her state license as an attorney and has never been proud of her country, to get even!

DID YOU KNOW PALIN WAS A REPUBLICAN BASHER WHEN SHE WAS ELECTED GOVERNOR OF ALASKA? THE DEM'S LOVED HER! SPOTS CHANGE. THEY GO WITH THE MONEY IT WOULD SEEM. VOTE ROMNEY UNLESS SOMEONE BETTER POPS UP MY FRIENDS.  WE NEED A BUSINESS PERSON TO REBUILD AMERICA.

      DESPICABLE VOTER 

      8 years ago from USA

      We can't roll over and play dead. That's not what made this country and that's not what I am about. You're right. Obama does not need the Congress or Senate, he has already proved that. That's why we have to stop him as soon as possible, before this really get way out of control, thanks to the "Hope and Change" voters we are really in a pickle.

      Gene do you really think we can stop the huge money eating government machine ? we are like bugs that if we cause any trouble it is just squashed or ignored. They just dont care. They think that there is nothing that we can do about their misrepresentations and money wasting. We can just hope to vote the evil doers out and hope to change things.It is really disappointing and disgusting government bs....
