Washington D.C. --Congressman Henry Cuellar (D-TX28) invites taxpayers from all over the 28th district to submit their ideas on how the federal government can save money and use resources more efficiently in order to reduce the nation’s deficit.

“The concept that all good ideas originate in Washington, DC, is wrong,” said Cuellar. "I want to hear directly from the taxpayers about their ideas on how to cut spending and make government programs and services more efficient. There is a lot of imagination, innovation, and brainpower in the 28th District. This is a good way to leverage technology to engage the public and get new ideas."

To submit ideas on how to reform government spending, visit Congressman Henry Cuellar’s Facebook page at http://on.fb.me/fennAQ or use the Twitter handle @RepCuellar with the hashtag #spendingreform.

Sixty plus years ago I saw a poster in an Air Force repair shop which read "IF IT WORKS, DON'T FIX IT." Nobody pays attention to that concept.

See Alvin I told you that logic course would help. Yep. The congressman does get paid to think of these things himself and share his ideas with us. Course he already knows Wilson County would not like his real ideas so this is ... More ›

I dont believe that the congressman is insincereer in asking for idea's. If he is sincere I think that after spending so much time in Washington, he should go first and tell us the things he wants to cut spending on, then ... More ›

Why would any sane person be in favor of a almost half trillion entitlement program ?

Michael.......Your assumptions do not take into account that this tax is inclusive. Most workers pay only the employee part of the payroll tax so your calculations are misleading. The 23% inclusive tax is the same as ... More ›

Once the FairTax is enacted, ALL federal taxes will be paid at the final point of consumption. As of this writing, the majority of states have a sales tax with a collection system already in place. Those who have actually read ... More ›

80 percent of the American people support this measure. Last I checked, the GOP failed to count on their vote so they voted against them....

Facts only please......Did you miss the election that gave the US a Republican House of Representatives or did you think that we were electing a King ?

Fair Tax......Any tax with a rebate to make it progressive doesn't deserve the term "Fair". The so called fair tax is inclusive which means that the purported 23 percent tax rate is the same as a 30 percent ... More ›
