(Winter Garden, FL) – Unveiling a ceremonial check, Representative Daniel Webster (FL-10) has once again cut wasteful spending from his Congressional budget. Announcing his fifth year of providing responsible savings to American taxpayers, Rep. Webster issued the following statement:

“Washington operates on the principle that if money is appropriated, it should be spent. During my service in Congress, I have striven to expose this flawed mindset. Over the past five years, I have returned over 30% of the money allocated to run my Congressional office, surpassing a cumulative amount of $2 million.

“We must get serious about fixing our spending problem in Washington, and I encourage every office, agency, and bureau to follow this pattern of removing waste without cutting services.”

Representative Daniel Webster has been a strong advocate for cutting wasteful government spending. Leading by example, Rep. Webster has once again returned over 30% of the taxpayer dollars appropriated to his office, unveiling a ceremonial check in the amount of $384,256.64. Rep. Webster has continued this pattern since he was elected in 2010, and has saved American taxpayers a cumulative total of $2,026,839.16. If each Member of Congress had followed this example, the House and Senate alone could have saved over $1.5 billion during the last five years.
