Government Spending Per Minute: $6.85 Million

“The people will be crushed under the burden of taxes, loan after loan will be floated; after having drained the present, the State will devour the future.”

“Everyone wants to live at the expense of the state. They forget that the state wants to live at the expense of everyone.”

– Frederic Bastiat – French Theorist

30 June 1801 – 24 December 1850

From the Freedom Loving Folks at CBS News:

House Republicans on Thursday trimmed about $35 million from the House’s operating budget, a move that Speaker John Boehner hailed as “a strong signal” of the new Congress’ “commitment to making the tough choices necessary to end Washington’s job-killing spending binge.”
