Conservative group likes a Bill Nelson proposal

The National Taxpayers Union is backing Bill Nelson and Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown's proposal to give taxpayers a receipt showing how their federal tax dollars are being spent.

The idea would give taxpayers "an invaluable educational tool that will allow them to take their rightful place at the forefront of the conversation over how to deal with the budgetary challenges facing our nation," the group said in a letter to members of Congress, urging support.

" 'The Taxpayer Receipt Act' provides a welcome dose of transparency by offering taxpayers a glimpse into where their money is going, as well as clearly showing how much the federal government is borrowing in their name," the letter says.
