Ron Paul Returns Funds To Treasury

Ron Paul again returns unspent funds to the government. Ron Paul saved 10% of his budget to help pay down the national debt. Will other Congressmen follow Ron Paul's lead?

Taking another step forward in 2011, the Texas congressman and darling of the more libertarian, Tea Party wing of the Republican Party is continuing to walk the walk, returning a whopping $140,000 in unused office funds to the U.S. Treasury for the purpose of paying down the national debt. The sum is nearly 10% of his office funds and a 40% increase over the $100,000 he returned last year.
