WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Rick Scott released the first episode of his new series in partnership with the Heritage Foundation: How Washington Wastes Your Money. Every Wednesday, Senator Scott will release an episode highlighting how Washington is failing the American people with its wasteful spending. Senator Scott ran on a platform to make Washington work for families across the nation, and is working every day to make sure taxpayers get the best return on their investment.
Today’s episode focuses on “improper payments” – payments made by federal agencies that are either the incorrect amount or paid to the wrong recipient. According to the Government Accountability Office, the United States made over $150 billion in improper payments last year – taxpayer dollars that should have never been spent.
