In our Let's Cut Some Spending series, ForAmerica chronicles the many ways Washington wastes YOUR tax dollars - and as you’ll see, the list is endless.

Today’s offering: $2.5 million for kayaking!

Columnist Cal Thomas writes:

New Hampshire Democrat Senator Jeanne Shaheen wants $2.5 million for a recreational project in the small town of Franklin to create "in-river features for Olympic-style competition" for sports such as kayaking and slalom.

Um... how about... NO!

We are $33 trillion in debt and this Democrat wants to create a better kayaking experience in her state with $2.5 million of OUR money?!?

Absolutely not.

As Thomas notes, "Common sense and sanity are not the first words that come to mind when dealing with congressional spending. They can't help themselves because they aren't spending their money. They're spending our money and borrowing the rest. It's a form of vote buying."

"The federal government takes in record amounts of revenue, so income isn't the problem," he added. "Unrestrained spending is the problem."
