i also found this question pretty difficult but i am convinced now that only A makes sense as we need "That" to connect two clauses. "That" is missing in other choices.

"However much United States voters may agree" is a dependent clause and "there is waste in government and that the government as a whole spends beyond its means" is an independent clause; therefore you need a subordinating conjunction to join these two, and that serves the purpose. Hope this helps. E is passive.

We definitely need "that" after agree, but A just sounds terrible. "However much" sounds really bad for written English.

What is the source of this SC? I have found that some Kaplan SCs can be pretty nonsensical as compared to average GMAT questions.

Definitely A. "That" is needed in the sentence. And I have seen cases where 'howmuchever' is used though it sounds awkward at first pass.
