  • Another big expenditure, and you will pay. HUD awards $1.7 Billion to preserve public housing. HUD wants to keep our folks on welfare, and wants to make sure there is housing for them. You pay.
  • New fines defined for charitable hospitals, in the Affordable Healthcare Act. Most hospitals are charitable, treating needy folks as necessary.

[NDAC comment: the purpose of the farm subsidy program many years ago was to reduce the cost of farm products to consumers ... but paid for with consumer's taxes. We know that the government takes much of the taxation to run farm subsidy program. So there is a great loss between your taxation and the reduction in cost of farm products. It's your money.

  • IRS news is taxation news. Here is the latest.
  • More wasted money; Senator McCain says we should stop sending aid to Egypt. [NDAC Comment: This begs so many questions: We send aid to the Muslim Brotherhood and to the Egyptian Army ... and to "Egypt". We're aiding both sides?!?!? Is Congress trying to fuel a war? And just who gets that aid to "Egypt"? It's your money and my money that Congress is throwing on that fire.]
  • If Congress were to get rid of the IRS, what would replace it. Actually there is a bill in Congress now to do just that. It's H.R. 25 and S. 122. It gets rid of the IRS and replaces it with a simple revenue agency. Read it for yourself. NDAC advocates this bill.
  • The U. S. State Department spending your money on dorms in Afghanistan. More of your money going away. Are you going to do anything about it?

  • We've reported before on the vote buying, pork spending, written in unrelated legislation. Here is a new one: the massive Senate immigration bill. It is a monster as bad as the healthcare act. Here is one article describing some of the garbage included in the immigration bill. It has links to other sources and the bill. You can read it, our U.S. Senators DID NOT! It has little to do with immigration or border control. It's PORK! And we're broke, President Obama said so!
  • Farm subsidies, a lot of it goes to Congress Members who vote for it.
  • The IRS can find you, but can't figure out that one address can have thousands of residents. $46 Million lost. I want my money back!
  • NEW REPORT: IRS DELIBERATELY BROKE RULES. Knowingly, willfully, broke the rules. !Article about it. It's your money. Do something about it.
  • Calculation Error! Count the contributions, but not the benefit payments. CBO made the mistake, and it resulted in false reporting about "benefits" of allowing illegal aliens to become citizens.

  • Deficits, Debts ... check out this article. The amounts are so large that some controversial reforms appear inconsequential in comparison.
  • The Farm Bill (2013) ... 80% of the spending goes to Food Stamps. Are you a taxpayer? Yes you are. Government taking your money and doing with it what you like?

  • The Congressional Budget Office now calculates that Affordable Healthcare Act (Obamacare) will cost $1.8 Trillion. We're broke and you don't have enough money to tax to cover the costs.

  • If you were not afraid of the IRS before, pay attention. Pay attention to your government, pay close attention.
  • IRS will administer the new healthcare law. Yes we knew this. But, wait, there's more.
  • Congress is considering a bill to impose online sales tax, a state level tax. [NDAC comment: Normally NDAC only examines federal level budget issues. Sales taxes are state and local level taxation. We report this Congressional action because it is a case where the federal government is getting involved in state level taxation issues. NDAC considers this an encroachment on the several states' authority. State governments should handle this issue and avoid allowing the federal government to intervene.]
  • Do you buy "online"? The U.S. Senate wants add sales tax on your purchases. There was never a tax idea that Congress didn't like.

[NDAC comment: The Department of Agriculture runs this program and its cost covers department salaries, rent, travel, celfones, benefits. It's a horribly inefficient program. But that's true for all government run programs. The Department of Education is the worst. Check their budget. See how much of the money going into the Department actually benefits schools, or education.]
