The Budget Cutting Test -

Live in the South? Every Congressman has been to their districts lately saying the same thing, "We've got to cut government spending!"...Ask your Congressman about their support for Rep. Betty McCollum's amendment, it appears when Rep. McCollum put them to the test... they ran backwards. And just what was Rep. McCollum's amendment?

She proposed to cut Government funding for NASCAR...

"McCollum filed an amendment this month to prohibit the Defense Department from spending money to sponsor NASCAR teams..." and "racetrack owners received tax breaks worth $45 million in 2010 and 2011, aimed at helping them make improvements to their facilities. ... Her amendment failed, 281-148."
