Wasting Your Tax Dollars

Now, another episode of Your Tax Dollars In Action. Which of these is not in the new federal budget?

  1. $1,650,000 to improve the shelf life of vegetables
  2. $1,350,000 to study obesity in the military
  3. $4,000,000 for a railroad to the North Pole
The answer, of course, is that all of those things have been appropriated by Congress.

Today I talked with Dave Williams of Citizens Against Government Waste about their 2007 Pig Book, which ennumerates these and many other ways your tax dollars are being wasted -- by both Democrats and Republicans. Listen.
