Fiorina: Technology can reduce 'out-of-control' spending

Senate Republican hopeful Carly Fiorina this week said technology can help reduce "out-of-control" government spending.

In an interview with Glenn Beck on Fox News, Fiorina said, "Technology can help. I'm from the technogy industry. Let us put every agency budget up on Internet for every citizen to see. People would be outraged."

This would "give the people the information," Fiorina said, and would cut down on "out-of-control government spending."

However, it is common practice for goverment agencies to post their budgets on the Internet.

Fiorina, former chairman and CEO of Hewlett-Packard, is seeking to defeat Sen. Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.) this fall. But she will first need to get by California State Assemblyman Chuck DeVore, who has been endorsed by conservative Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.).

Fiorina also told Beck, "Let us put every piece of legislation up on the Internet for everyone to see before they vote on it."
