2013's $28 billion of government waste

Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Oklahoma, reveals his annual "Wastebook" - a laundry list of government projects that he classifies as waste. CNN's Tom Foreman looks into what made this year's list, including a $1 million bus stop and salaries during the government shutdown.

    So everyone who voted yes for the Budget needs to say to the next vet they see with missing limbs that these things Colburn listed are more important than their retirement. I know it is tough to get the Liberals at CNN to understand because to you empathy means unemployment and food stamps not taking care of the people who gave up for your freedom. I believe it would be interesting to see how much the anchors give to Wounded Warriors or homes for hero's considering all of you are in the upper 10% income bracket.

    Why is this not your lead story instead of buried where no one can see? These are our dollars we worked hard to earn that are being wasted.
