We all know the Federal Government waste money (both parties), in order to generate votes. A lot of money makes it to Liberal universities for "junk research" which is a tactic Democrats use to gain leverage with the university system knowing these institutions will be more inclined to push their ideology to young people.
I could list hundreds of these junk research projects but here's a few for you to digest that are wasting millions of taxpayer dollars: 1) Research to study what makes for the perfect first date. Magazines write hundreds of articles regarding this subject...it's been researched to death. 2) Research to study if smiling in a selfie makes you happier. That will really help move the needle on our country's success. 3) Research to study whether or not if the Federal Government pays for studies will the studies produce better results? Don't let this one sink in too much or you'll want to throw up.
When it comes to their spending they are not at all transparent because they know what they're doing in many cases is unethical. We need to hold politicians accountable for their spending tactics because we work way too hard to have them play fast and loose with our tax dollars. I've provided a link below of the organization that is doing the best job catching both parties scamming us (Citizens Against Government Waste). It won't go away on its own so if you'd get involved in this matter it would be greatly appreciated. http://www.cagw.org/reporting/pig-book
