"People tend to try to get to agreement rather than doing the hard work of where the waste really is. That's the laziness on the part of congress. Every appropriator has available to them the Wastebook. They can put restrictions on all this spending. They could redirect it. The fact is that they haven't and the real undermining reason for that is spending money, especially if somebody goes back home makes you look good. If it's hard work plus doing it doesn't make you look good, the career politicians in Washington tend to not want to be responsible with your tax dollars. That's the final point I'd make. Look, it's not about necessarily $100 million here or $900,000 here. It's who is paying for it. And it isn't us. It's a decreased standard of living for our kids. We're at almost $18 trillion worth of debt and we don't have the luxury to continue spending money that we don't have on things we don't need."
