Senator Dan Coats says government agencies have documented a more than 200 billion dollar waste of tax dollars. And during a visit to Evansville Thursday, Coats says eliminating some of that waste would be enough to finance an extension of unemployment benefits to 1.3 million Americans who lost them with the start of the new year. Coats wondered out loud why one agency couldn't call the other and work together to reduce the waste.
