What might follow the money in our government gone wild segments and I'd take a look at this big expensive and empty building the old post office and Washington DC has been vacant for the past decade costing us more than six million bucks a year to keep up.
And the government is sitting -- get this.
Another 141000 more properties that are either empty or under use join me now.
Kept them thank you sir for joining us and and shining a light up on this ridiculous government waste there.
Go ahead tell us about that post office personal.
-- the post offices amazing six and a half million dollars we spend every year just in upkeep and this is -- it's a bipartisan.
Bill that has said look.
Let's redevelopment we've now got -- -- story of Mary out of held a number of others willing to come -- a redevelop a historic piece of property.
But these properties -- across the nation.
I mean this is the biggest amount ways that you can ever imagine -- government.
We spent almost two billion dollars just in upkeep of the 141000.
Properties that are -- been identified as not -- -- -- used.
But it goes well beyond that and we've got into court.
Housed in the seat hog -- offices across the nation or let's let's take a look at that we have a full screen is just in an LA courthouse.
So right LA yeah chancellor -- -- -- use them.

Absolutely I mean that is just -- complete waste of taxpayer dollars.
There are nearly two billion that we spend every year.
But if you really want to bring revenue back to reduce our debt.
I mean here's a good way to bring in revenue just by selling -- stuff we're not using do we have any idea what that stuff is worth -- -- the sell off those -- -- good portion of those 141000 are you under used or vacant properties.
It's billions and billions of dollars I mean right now we project being able to save fifteen billion.
Just in the sale of properties over the next few years but it did the number could be astronomical part of the challenges.
We don't have one less that shows everything that we -- you know as a business you know exactly what's your assets are but as a government there's not one list -- we'll show you what we don't.
