Only in Washington
Wednesday, 07 August 2013
August 7-- Former Georgia Secretary of State and U.S. Senate candidate Karen Handel asks, "why did Congress spend $27 Million to teach Moroccans how to make pottery?" Spending our tax dollars on pottery classes in Africa is only the latest example of Karen's "Only in Washington" Campaign that is examining 42 outrageous actions by Washington.

"While Morocco is no doubt a lovely place, we have families in Georgia that are being hurt by high taxes fueling out of control spending. Georgia families -- American families -- should be Congress' top priority," Handel said. "What's worse is that the program was deemed a failure, and $27 MILLION of our hard-earned dollars were spent on a program that was a failure as well as a mistake. It's this kind of ridiculous, out of comtrol spending that has helped saddle us with a nearly $17 trillion debt. As Georgia's next U.S. Senator, I'm going to do something about it."
