Thirteen insane projects funded by our federal government.
I especially like #5: “NASA spends $3 million looking for signs of intelligent life…in Congress.”
These idiotic programs, which certainly only scratch the surface of the wasteful and corrupt spending in Washington, prove once again that the most recent budget deal is a fraud, that there is no reason to support any increase in federal spending, that we probably could cut the budget in half and not notice anything.
Sadly, that budget deal appears about to pass the Senate.
