Help us stop wasteful government spending! Tell us where you've found it so we can stop it in its tracks; and while you're here vote on other posts as well. You citizens are the ultimate government watchdogs.

The following statement was made back in January 2006. Does anyone know if we are still feeding inmates above the USDA recommended daily calories of 2,000? The reference is from Warden Clint Friel of the Utah State Prison
Most of Utah’s sedentary prisoners, on the other hand, love their 3,000 calories of daily food so much that one warden fears prison riots if the portions are reduced and healthier food in introduced. “You get one riot, you’re into millions and millions of dollars,” says Warden Clint Friel.But inmates in Utah prisons gain considerable weight during their first year, 34 pounds on average for men, 17 for women.
