How about we take a look at some of the more ridiculous ways our federal government chooses to spend your hard-earned tax dollars.
From CNSNews: “The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has awarded $25,000 that will go to the construction of benches made of garbage for a park in Tijuana, Mexico.” Wow, now there's a productive use of our tax dollars.
Here's another example from CNSNews: “The Labor Department’s Bureau of International Labor Affairs plans to award up to $1 million in taxpayer dollars to increase gender equality at work ... in Morocco.”
And according to an Inspector General audit, “employees at the Department of Labor racked up an estimated $3.8 million in unauthorized or undocumented expenses over the past two and a half years, including charges at Hilton Naples Grande Beach Resort, Wal-Mart, Target and Chick-fil-A.”
Yet we can't cut spending? Ridiculous.
