(Washington, D.C.) – Today Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) released its September 2016 WasteWatcher, a monthly dispatch to members of the news media, highlighting some of the most prominent fiscal issues affecting American taxpayers.  The stories from its September edition of WasteWatcher are listed in part as follows:
