Accountability is needed in ALL of these spending bills. Green jobs was a farce. The UN is a farce. Climate warming is another farce! Schools need adequate facilities and property taxes cannot be the source of funding. Too many seniors are afraid of losing their homes with so many levies on the ballots.

F.D.R. got the country out of the depression by starting projects and getting people to work doing practical projects that not only improved the country but also trained folks in areas that they had no skills.
