    Mark, I would like to know how in good conscience Indiana Republicans can accept grants from my & every taxpayer’s federal taxes when we have several billion surplus in state funds.
    If we want to be an example of less spending we should reject any and all grants from the federal government & return the money. If States need money then BORROW it to them instead of GIFTING it to them. NOBODY gives me free money. Federal money should only be used on federal projects not state, county or city projects.
    I don’t have a problem with conservative spending but If was want to preach conservative values then we should practice what we preach.
    I think you would be surprised that there are more conservatives like me that feel that way.
    I’m totally disgusted with Republican rhetoric about spending and we keep blaming the other party. Let’s practice what we preach and why not start here and be an example.
    Thank You for listening!!
