Bosse Continues Campaign to Save Taxpayers $30 Billion

“50 Days, 50 Ways to Cut Federal Spending” Enters Home Stretch

(Lebanon) With one week left until the September 9th Republican Primary, Republican Grant Bosse continues his innovative “50 Days, 50 Ways to Cut Federal Spending” Initiative. Bosse would add an additional $66 million in taxpayer savings by eliminating the Even Start Program, an adult-literacy program that has failed to demonstrate any results despite 20 years of trial projects.

“Combining early childhood literacy, adult literacy, and parenting classes seemed like a good idea when this program began in 1988,” Bosse said. “Unfortunately, Even Start has failed to show any results. We can’t afford well-intentioned programs if they don’t work.”

Bosse has highlighted an outdated, inefficient, or wasteful federal program every day on the campaign trail, and has already proposed more than $22 billion in annual savings. At recent debates in Salem and Nashua, his Republican opponents were unable to name a single federal program they would cut.

“If we’re going to rebuild the Taxpayer Majority at the heart of the Republican Party, we need to get serious about cutting federal spending,” Bosse added. “My opponents won’t say where they would cut the budget. We deserve candidates willing to take a firm stand against out of control spending by telling us exactly where they would cut.”

To date, Bosse has proposed more than $22.7 billion in taxpayer savings by eliminating unnecessary federal programs. To learn more about Bosse’s aggressive grassroots campaign, go to www.Bosse2008.com.
