U.S. Representative Greg Walden of Oregon has been making the rounds of T-V commentary shows, hammering away with is position of wasteful government spending. 

 

 On a recent appearance on "Fox and Friends" Walden accuses Washington of setting the wrong priorities when cutting budgets.  

 

"They want to inflict the most pain possible on the most people possible rather than go after this wasteful Washington spending. Last year alone, according to a GAO report, government overpaid various people and contractors $115-billion. That's more than the sequester. This could be resolved and managed. Having been a small business owner for 22 years, there is a way to do this." 

 

Walden went on to say Washington wants bigger government and higher taxes, yet four out of five years - the presidents has not submitted a budget on time.
