Here is yet another reason that we need more people on Capital Hill like Ron Paul. Dr. Paul returned $141,580 of his budget to the government because he doesn’t go on rampant spending sprees:
Congressman Ron Paul has returned $141,580 of unspent office funds to the US Treasury. This represents just over 9% of the total office funds, and an increase over the $100,000 returned last year.
It would seem in a time of financial crisis that we could use more monetarily responsible representatives. Granted with the history of government spending I’m doubting we’ll get such people anytime this century.
