Rep. Joe Walsh, R.-Ill., accuses the White House of being misleading on funding for the national Head Start program for children. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney recently insisted that President Barack Obama’s claim that funding for the program was left as is in the most recent presidential budgeting was correct, reports HumanEvents.com.

Walsh says this is not true, and also that the administration is ignoring reports pointing out waste in the program.

After “all the funding and attempts to reform Head Start, the Department of Health and Human Services and the General Accountability Office and numerous independent studies have determined that there is substantial waste in Head Start,” Walsh told HumanEvents.com.

A Congressional Research Service report shows that the president increased Head Start’s budget by $866 million, to $8.1 billion, this year.

“Times are tough. We need to cut government spending. Everything should be put on the table, and a real dispassionate cost benefit analysis of every government program needs to be conducted to determine worth and value, and Head Start should be near the top of the list,” Walsh said.
