Our nation’s capital is crawling with lobbyists right now. They want money, something our government wastes every day.
Star Parker said on Straight Arrow News that these special interest groups with their hands out help bloat our government and sometimes threaten the principles of our founding.
Corporate lobbyists don’t want the government encroaching with overreach and excessive regulation, so “they cozy up to lawmakers to protect or expand their business interest,” Star said. “But they’re not the only ones. The fact is 60 percent of Americans get more from government than they put in today.”
Too much of our federal spending goes to states, communities and individuals who are often not accountable, Star added.
“According to the House Budget Committee, the federal government spent a total of $4.1 trillion on transfer payments to individuals in fiscal year 2022. And if that sounds like a lot, it’s because it is.”
What do we do about it? Well, Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida rejected President Joe Biden’s inflation reduction funding for his “clean energy” programs. But that’s just a start.
