Republican freshmen who came to Congress last year promising to transform Washington's free-spending culture are no different from most other lawmakers in at least one respect: They mailed out millions of taxpayer-funded flyers and brochures during their first year in office which the tax payers pay for.

GOP freshmen sent more than 25.6 million pieces of unsolicited mail last year at a cost of nearly $9.8 million, according to a review of records compiled by the chief administrative officer of the House.

The figures cover only the nine months from April 1 to Dec. 31. Prior to that, mass mailings were not broken out from other taxpayer-financed mass communications allowed under the congressional franking rule. The costs include the expense of producing the piece and the price of postage.

•Of the 10 lawmakers who spent the most taxpayer money on franked mail, eight were GOP freshmen. Of the 25 who spent the most, 18 were GOP freshmen. Republicans Joe Heck of Nevada ($319,251), Bobby Schilling of Illinois ($293,021) and Scott DesJarlais of Tennessee ($282,385) topped the list.

About 80 percent of House members — 347 — sent unsolicited mail. Those who sent none included seven of the 87 GOP freshmen and one freshman Democrat.

Congressional Republicans are trying to embarrass Democrats into spending less by highlighting what they said are the most wasteful spending projects of 2009, including almost $400,000 in federal money to encourage West Virginians to grow ginseng and shitake mushrooms.

•$1.9 million "Water Taxis to Nowhere" (Pleasure Beach, CT)
•$3.8 million urban art trail in Rochester, N.Y.
•$3.1 million in "mechanical upgrades" to an 88-year-old boat owned by the State Museum in New York
•$3 million for new bicycle racks in Georgetown, one of Washington, D.C.'s most affluent areas
•$1.5 million to streetscape six blocks around a casino in downtown Detroit
•$578,000 to fight homelessness in Union, New York, a town with no reported homeless people
•$550,000 skateboard park in Pawtucket, Rhode Island
•$500,000 in fish food for Missouri fish farmers
•$400,000 to renovate a vacant building in the city of Jal, New Mexico
•$380,350 to encourage West Virginia landowners to grow ginseng and shiitake mushrooms

Rep. Vern Buchanan's [R] legal and ethics troubles grow as allegations and investigations into his potential misconduct intensify.

A House Republican plan to slash funding for a Social Security program would cost taxpayers far more than it would save, according to a letter from Social Security’s chief actuary. The Republican plan, which is focused on a program meant to ensure that beneficiaries are not overpaid, would cut more than $800 million below the level agreed to in the Budget Control Act, the spending agreement passed during last year’s debt limit negotiations.

According to Social Security chief actuary Stephen Goss, however, the cuts will cost taxpayers between $5 billion and $6 billion, Talking Points Memo reports:

In a Thursday letter responding to inquiring House Democrats, Social Security’s chief actuary Stephen C. Goss concludes that cuts will cost taxpayers “between $5 billion and $6 billion more over the lifetime of those who would not be reassessed due to the reduced funding.”

The cut would hamper the highly-effective program that roots out waste, fraud, and abuse in Social Security — according to Goss, such reviews produce between $6 and $9 in regained savings per dollar spent. While the analysis only covered the impact on the program this year, future cuts would likely have a similar impact on the program.

House leadership isn’t likely to give the Labor, Health, and Education appropriations package that contains the cuts a vote before the full House, but the plan keeps up the GOP’s disturbing trend of targeting social safety net programs that largely benefit the lower- and middle-classes.

You should keep your pornographic fantasy's off Topix. Try Playgirl or Gay Pride. It's obvious you're having sexual fantasy's while you're preparing to post. FYI I'm not gay or into little boys. You're walking a mighty fine line posting this crap. I suggest you get some help and I'm not talking about having a circle jerk with Dan the Man, bobby6464 or that queer from West Mifflin.

How much debt did Obama add? 6 plus trillion I think? That's a lot of money. More than all the Presidents combined since George Washington. Obama is on a spending spree to destroy America. He already caused out credit rating to drop and it looks like it will drop again.

This claim is easily checked by plugging Obama’s inauguration date — Jan. 20, 2009 — into the Treasury Department’s handy “debt to the penny” calculator. It shows that the nation’s total debt stood at $10.6 trillion on the day Obama took office, and it was at $16.2 trillion on Oct. 8, 2012, That means total debt has increased $5.6 trillion so far under Obama. That’s a huge increase in the national debt — more than 50 percent. But $5.6 trillion is nowhere near “almost as much” as the $10.6 trillion in debt amassed under the first 43 presidents. Tune into FOX news for more updated,unbiased news breaking stories.

In 2012, the U.S. will spend around $220 billion in net interest alone on its debt, according to the Congressional Budget Office — a figure that is expected to spiral ever higher in coming years.

The cost of two wars, two tax cuts and the Medicare prescription plan that werent paid for under President George W Bush has a whopping interest debt of over 200 billion a year without even putting a penny on the principal that was borrowed.

Bush’s Legacy Of Squandering Taxpayer Money

By Ali Frick on Sep 21, 2008 at 2:32 pm

Yesterday, President Bush announced his $700 billion plan to buy out troubled financial institutions. Demanding enormous faith in his administration’s stewardship, the plan “would place no restrictions on the administration other than requiring semiannual reports to Congress, granting the Treasury secretary unprecedented power to buy and resell mortgage debt,” and to hire outside firms “to help manage its purchases.” Further, the proposal provides no oversight mechanism:


Sec. 8. Review: Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency.

Bush is demanding unprecedented control over billions of dollars — with no OVERSIGHT. His history of mismanaging taxpayer dollars should make Americans skeptical of his buyout plan.

Some commentators blame major legislation adopted since 2008 — the stimulus bill and other recovery measures and the financial rescues — for today’s record deficits. Yet those costs pale next to other policies enacted since 2001 that have swollen the deficit. Those other policies may be less conspicuous now, because many were enacted some years ago and they have long since been absorbed into CBO’s and other organizations’ budget projections.

Just two policies dating from the Bush Administration — tax cuts and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan — accounted for over $500 billion of the deficit in 2009 and will account for $6 trillion in deficits in 2009 through 2019, including the associated debt-service costs. By 2019, we estimate that these two policies will account for almost half — nearly $9 trillion — of the $18 trillion in debt that will be owed under current policies.(The Medicare prescription drug benefit enacted in 2003 also will substantially increase deficits and debt, but we are unable to quantify these impacts due to data limitations.) These impacts easily dwarf the stimulus and financial rescues, which will account for less than $2 trillion (less than 10 percent) of the debt at that time. Furthermore, unlike those temporary costs, these inherited policies (especially the tax cuts and the drug benefit) do not fade away as the economy recovers.

Without the economic downturn and the fiscal policies of the previous Administration, the budget would be roughly in balance over the next decade. That would have put the nation on a much sounder footing to address the demographic challenges and the cost pressures in health care that darken the long-run fiscal outlook.
