TYLER — A lot of wasteful spending is happening in Washington DC.
$440,000 is spent annually on attendants to push buttons on fully-automated elevators for legislators on capitol hill.
1.6 million farm subsidy checks for $1.3 billion, were mailed to urban zip codes during the past decade including New York City and Los Angeles.
Those are just a couple of "wasteful spending" examples discussed on Talkback with KTBB's Garth Maier. Hear what East Texans have to say.
