We are $16 trillion in debt. That’s over $53,000 for every man, woman and child in the U.S. Our annual budget deficit, which adds to our debt, is over $1 trillion per year. And now, our U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack is happy to announce that the federal government is willing to pay out an additional $8 million to Iowa farmers to add more than 55,000 acres to the Conservation Reserve Program to provide game bird cover! Where are our priorities? This kind of unnecessary spending must stop!
