Dennis Ross Recognized as 'Taxpayer Hero'
"I'm honored to stand for taxpayers," said Ross on Thursday. "Many families are struggling financially in this economy. The government takes too much of their hard-earned money as it is. And then we find out that money is wasted -- $750,000 for a soccer field for terrorists and $559,681 to study shrimps' performance on a treadmill, just to name a couple of examples. Floridians and all Americans deserve to keep more of their money and also deserve that their taxpayer dollars are spent wisely. I'm working hard on their behalf to eliminate waste and ensure transparency."
