I am so beyond excited to write this review, I literally read this book in 2 days it would’ve been shorter if I hadn’t been reading another book along with it.
Drain the Swamp by Ken Buck… such an insightful book, I think every American should read this. This book takes you through how Congress is currently acting with America’s finances and how it should be acting with it.
So Congress is sometimes labeled “the purse” and that’s because they are supposed to deal with how our money should be spent but instead Congress only cares about themselves and getting reelected. This is why Congress should have term limits because it supposed to be a service not a career. This book takes you through the corruption of how the government is spending our money. Congressman Buck takes you through how Congress hasn’t proposed a balanced budget in years and how we have been funding unauthorized programs (which isn’t illegal). I absolutely love this book because Congressmen Buck actually explains how we can “drain the swamp.” Literally gives step by step. Honestly this book will terrify you a little bit when you read about all the corruption that goes on but hopefully it will help wake up the American people. Our Founding Fathers did not want the federal government to have so much power so it’s our job, as the states, to take back our power.
Seriously, go read it.
