(Washington, D.C.) – Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW) today released the sixth edition of its Policy Manual.  For candidates, the manual is designed to help explain the rationale against government waste, and chart a policy course for after election day.  For voters, the manual is to help distinguish between pro-taxpayer candidates and those who talk a good game.  Every American taxpayer should read it before they head to the polling booth on November 7th

"We are now in a new millennium and many new issues confront the nation and its leadership,” CAGW President Thomas A Schatz said.  “From internet taxation, to partial Social Security privatization, to budget process reform, Americans are dealing with public policy decisions unlike those of even ten years ago.  The Policy Manual will help move the complicated policy debates of the future into the present.”

CAGW's Policy Manual covers five new areas of waste: Biotechnology, Free Trade, High Tech, Steel Subsidies, and United States Postal Service Reform.  The complete Policy Manual also covers 33 diverse areas of government waste.

“The manual gives clear and concise answers to some of our most complicated public policy questions.” Schatz added.  “Having the American public better informed will help keep a close eye on the Congress and keep us out of trouble.”

CAGW is a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization with over one million members and supporters dedicated to eliminating waste, fraud, mismanagement and abuse in government.
