Tom Coburn (au)
This 2012 ed. of an annual report issued by Senator Tom Coburn, M.D., provides examples of mismanagement, wasteful spending and special interest deals which represent missed opportunities to assist those in need and to shore up the nationšůĽs finances. Senator Coburn notes that Washington spent much of the year deadlocked over whether to cut spending or increase taxes to address our fiscal crisis, while allowing or even supporting these questionable projects. Each of the 100 entries highlighted by this report, therefore, is a direct result of Washington politicians who are preoccupied with running for re-election rather than running the country, which is what they were elected to do in the first place. Some examples of wasteful projects are$325,00 to develop a robotic squirrel; tax loopholes of $91 million for professional sports leagues; and an unused airport in Oklahoma kept open to collect $450,000 in federal checks. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
