Description
 
This report highlights 100 examples of wasteful and low-priority government spending totaling nearly $30 billion. Author Senator Tom Coburn states, While politicians in Washington spent much of 2013 complaining about sequestrations impact on domestic programs and our national defense, we still managed to provide benefits to the Fort Hood shooter, study romance novels, help the State Department buy Facebook fans and even help NASA study Congress....Had Congress, in particular, been focused on doing its job of setting priorities and cutting the kind of wasteful spending outlined in this report, we could have avoided both a government shutdown and a flawed budget deal that was designed to avert a shutdown. The nearly $30 billion in questionable and lower-priority spending described here is a small fraction of the more than $200 billion we throw away every year through fraud, waste, duplication and mismanagement....Whats lacking is the common sense and courage in Washington to make those choices and passage of fiscally-responsible spending bills possible. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
