image for Congressional Inquiry Finds That Spending More Than You Make Can Contribute To Financial Difficulties
The Congressional inquiry lasted two years.

Washington D.C. - A recently concluded inquiry by a joint Senate and House committee has concluded that spending more money than you make could be a contributing factor to having financial difficulties.

The inquiry lasted two years and cost an estimated $127 million dollars. A press release by the committee said the cost of the inquiry was offset in the Federal budget by a $93.5 million reduction in unemployment compensation for disabled veterans.

Mitch McConnell, (R-KY) co-chairman of the committee that performed the inquiry, said that their analysis was detailed and complete. Said Senator McConnell, "Our data was gathered from across the United States. I personally spent over two weeks in Hawaii gathering information and personally interviewing several average citizens."

The Republican members of the committee vowed to continue meeting and to study possible ways of rectifying the problem. One preliminary solution the committee vowed to investigate is to give large government grants to pharmaceutical companies to study ways for people to get by on less food.
