What does the government spend too much money on?
The federal government spends too much money enforcing its preferences on the states.
I suppose I'm more upset that certain sectors are not asked to pay out more than they should (the mega wealthy and corporations) and that they then spin things like estate taxes and tax breaks as something that is really going to benefit the little guy, when really they are ways to let the wealthy keep their wealth.
It's not what they spend the money on that bugs me. It's that they give such huge tax breaks to corporations and the super-wealthy. (I'm talking the Warren Buffets and Bill Gates.)
Personally, I would say military and NASA.
the government spends too much money on everything not important. actually i think they spend too much money one everything period.
i bet if i was given time i could cut back on more than half of their
spending in every field. i am cheap and good at finding ways to save money.
investing is a godsend to me. sometimes its hard to put up the money for
investing but i know that the return will be unbelievable so i get over
some programs that are good dont get the chance to prove themselves because they are cut off in the first year if they show the right numbers to look good. everyone with common sense knows that in education you need a few years to see the result and when you do start seeing the results they are big.
the officials have no patience with the programs because they just the
numbers to look right. its so horrible. i remember teachers letting students
cheat on the standardized tests and sometimes
I would guess tobacco subsidies and subsidies to not grow certain crops like sugar or corn. I've got no sympathy for people who whine about losing their "way of life". Grow something else or get out of farming.
Mine spends too much money on themselves. Yours probably does too.
At the moment, I'm more concerned with government waste and the fraud of government employees with limitless credit cards than I am with government spending.
