I oppose The Nashua River Wild and Scenic River Study Act because we don't need to spend anymore of the tax payer’s money to keep a liberal group working for another year. We could pay down what our country owes if we were to stop giving out money to all these groups. They need to go out and get a real job and be a value added employee for our country. If they want to study something, go study it on there own buck. If there successful, maybe some one will buy it. As long as they can really prove there studies, check out with a fine tooth comb. So far these groups have been selling facts that are not facts and the liberals continue to push these groups.
