National Taxpayers Union Foundation Finds Zero Fiscally Responsible Legislators in Mass. Delegation
A National Taxpayers Union Foundation’s analysis of the 113th Congress found that there was not a single member of the Massachusetts Congressional delegation that proposed net spending cuts. . The report provides a comprehensive overview of the net cost of all of the spending and savings bills sponsored or cosponsored by each member of Congress. The NTUF cross-index their database of cost estimates with each bill supported by each member to calculate their net spending agenda (excluding overlapping/duplicate measures).
There were no net budget cutters among Massachusetts’ delegation, spending agendas ranged from increases of $41 billion to over $1 trillion.
Details on the Massachusetts delegation can be found on the NTUF website at http://www.ntu.org/ntuf/bt-state/113-2/massachusetts.html .
Mass Highways Cost 5 Times National Average, Rank Low in Quality
Some interesting data.
Massachusetts administrative costs per mile of highway is $74,855. National average? $10,579.
We spend $675,312 per mile on our highways, second only to New Jersey.
National average? $160,202.
Despite spending 5 times the national average, this same report shows Mass. roads and bridges to be among the worst in the U.S.
And they wonder why we don’t want to give them more gas tax dollars.
