You want fiscal responsibility? Start here.

“Because of its persistent inability to tally its accounts, the Pentagon is the only federal agency that has not complied with a law that requires annual audits of all government departments. That means that the $8.5 trillion in taxpayer money doled out by Congress to the Pentagon since 1996, the first year it was supposed to be audited, has never been accounted for. That sum exceeds the value of China’s economic output last year. — Reuters journalist Scot J.

To all your supposed fiscally responsible people out there: if you want the government to spend less, then start here and not by attacking money that is directed to poor people.
