Here’s more incredible news about your tax dollars at work.
The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development has provided more than $137,000 for a three-year study on the “sexual behavior of aging men.” I’m not making this up -- and couldn’t even if I tried.
There is so much waste, fraud and abuse in government. Politicians regularly tell us they can’t afford to cut our taxes because of the deficit (and now the popular turn-of-phrase is that tax cuts will “cost the government money,” as if it is theirs to lose), yet they run up the deficit with irresponsible spending like this.
We ought to dock politicians’ pay for every year they fail to reduce spending and eliminate waste, fraud and abuse.
That would get their attention.
