Dear CNN: Dems Fund These Ridiculous Things But Not The Border Wall — Is That News?

Written by Wes Walker on January 11, 2019

Democrats ‘tough stand’ against the wall pretends to be about protecting us from Trump’s needless wasteful spending. We’re calling BS on that one.

You need look no further than ‘Citizens against Government waste‘.

With Trump asking for between $5 and $6 Billion to get started on our big beautiful wall, it’s helpful to see what other government projects already approved seem to think that was justifiable. Notice these amounts are higher than the amount wanted for the wall.

Here’s a small sampling of a longer list.

“Rural Utility Service.” This program costs taxpayers $8.2 billion/year and has no actual purpose after its original intent — bringing electricity to rural communities — was long ago achieved. It’s now being used to bring broadband access to small communities (usually with populations of less than 20,000). However there’s no indication the “beneficiaries” of this expensive government agency actually appreciate the program and the majority of its projects are not completed on time or within budget.
Sugar Subsidies. America, as Democrats frequently intone, faces a health crisis. What they don’t tell us is that it’s largely of their own making, as Congress subsidizes the production of unhealthy foods like sugar and high-fructose corn syrup. Eliminating sugar subsidies alone would save $6 billion, enough to fund the border wall; it would also have the added benefit of helping curb the nation’s obesity epidemic.
The United Nations. As the United Nation’s largest contributor, the U.S. in 2016 donated $10 billion to the U.N. As CAGW notes, reducing these contributions just 25 percent would create a savings of $12.5 billion over 10 years. Of the money Congress appropriates for the United Nations, 5 million taxpayer dollars are itemized for abortions in foreign countries.
Waste, Fraud, and Abuse. The Government Accountability Office estimates taxpayers are spending more than $137 billion annually on “payment errors,” which covers all manner of waste, fraud, and abuse within Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. The feds could implement the same kind of fraud protections credit card companies used to ensure against abuse, but don’t. In fact, Congress has gone in the opposite direction, winding down the program intended to police fraud within Medicare, the so-called Recovery Audit Contractor. In other words, Congress is knowingly funding tens of billions of dollars of fraud annually.

One Twitter user had a list of his own:

Fair warning, this gets really weird, really fast.

Weirder than ‘genital washing’? and seven figures worth of World of Warcraft? Sure. Maybe. Judge for yourself.

Vacant buildings… pancakes… hipster smoking parties… Twilight novels… college drinking… dead employees… pottery classes…

Sure, that all seems like a perfectly legitimate use of tax dollars.

Video games fighting obesity? There’s an idea that couldn’t possibly fail.

A quarter of a BILLION training SIXTY SYRIAN REBELS? That seems … a little high.

Robot squirrel… First Class airfare… rabbit massages… EPA-made mess… Obese lesbians… fighting shrimp… religious sites…

Robot Squirrels and lardy lesbians??


Great job holding that line on Waste, Nancy — wouldn’t want to piss taxpayer money away on anything as nonsensical as the fulfillment of a promise everyone signed off on back in ’06.

<a href=”“>The Trumpinator</a>: every time his rivals think they’ve got him down and out, he stands back up and keeps on coming.
They laughed when Trump announced his candidacy. They thought of him like some kind of a circus act. They couldn’t have been more wrong.

He survived the primaries and got the nomination. He knocked out Crooked Hillary.
He beat CNN at their own game, and left their ratings circling the toilet.
Mueller and the Dossier aren’t just coming up empty, they’re exposing the misdeeds of Brennan, Comey, McCabe, Strzok and all the rest.
And Trump is still keeping promises, and getting things done.
The economy is doing exactly what he promised it would. #PromisesKept
And in 2020, <a href=”“>The Trumpinator</a> is gonna do it again.
He’ll be back.
