Hal Rogers being appointed chairman of the Appropriatios Committee demonstrates that the Republicans were insincere and slack-jawing in their campaign platforms that said they want to cut government waste. Hal Rogers' reputation personifies government. If you look up Government Waste in the Brittanica, Hal Rogers' picture would likely be there with the definition.

The last thing this nation needs is big-spenders controlling any legislative committee. Pork Barreling is a scourge that must be eliminated if we are to rein in the economy.

We are not over taxed in this country. We overspend. I would like to see a 10-15% across the board, reduction in govenment spending to including reducing the governmental employees by at least 10%.

Just a cheap attempt at trying to cover up the fact that you yearn to be administered a Blumpkin or a Cleveland Steamer.
