Sometimes the proof is in the putting even when it comes to politics may be especially when it comes to politics.
Look my big issue for the Republican candidates for president just how careful when you be with taxpayer dollars are -- -- -- or defender.
Look everybody's talking a good game right now but the panel will hit the metal.
We actually elected candidate put the top us and the federal -- gets pulled out an opened up.
And guess what there are clues from last night's Iowa caucus they can give us a sense of how far these candidates can stretch -- dollar.
Their own dollar take a look at this chart.
What we've measured is just how much each candidate spent in campaign contributions.
For each -- they got.
-- by the way we are counting just their personal war chest not super pac money so take a look at this.
Mitt Romney the winner by only a boy it's -- that is spent 49 dollars per vote but.
Look at this Rick Santorum 73 cents -- total what -- -- this guy knows how to spend the dollar how to stretch a dollar.
Ron Paul spent time -- a 104 dollars to look at this next list.
Because this is the bottom three candidates Rick Perry spending 364.

Look it's always better to look at the evidence like this than listen to the promises when it comes politicians.
And want to know everything we can't about how these candidates spend because our federal government closed -- 2011.
As you can see already with a fifteen point two trillion dollar debt even worse our debt to GDP ratio is now above a 100% a hundred point 3%.

Unfortunately the people we have in Washington right now might not be the right people because they're kicking the can down the road.
Any day now you can expect the president asked congress to lift the debt ceiling.
Because we're about to run out of money to pay our debts bills already -- -- -- and all of Washington is just hoping you won't noticed.
No doubt though congress and the senate will face raising the ceiling to an unprecedented sixteen point 394 trillion.
And you and I will be the people who pay all that money back.
So watch with me in the coming weeks and months as we watch how these candidates spend their money as a proxy for how they'll spend our tax dollars.
That's what I.
