Private Prison Companies Make Big Money Off Detaining Illegal Immigrants

Is this what Jindal has in mind for Louisiana? This is an extreme WASTE OF TAXPAYER MONEY; not a good business plan. Where is the incentive to return them home?

U.S. Federal Spending - FY 2011

Here is the chart.

Looks like there is definately room for reduced spending, but also more efficient spending when it comes to Healthcare and most definately defense. We need to clean up the tax code which will take care of the revenue issues.

Too much "PROFIT" in these areas!

We need to clean out Congress! Cut out lifetime of healthcare and retirement benefits for so little service. The same people telling you Gov't is too big are being taken care of for life. Alot of these people will retire with more than one retirement plan while a good majority of Americans will NEVER beable to retire. IS THIS RIGHT?

Clean out Congress would be the first step in the right direction. The last 2 years should have proven this.
