As we have learned over the past eight years, liberalism is an ideology that simply does not work. Trying the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is the very definition of insanity.
Just look at how Obama spends our hard earned tax dollars. A junior senator is calling out the government over some of its ridiculous government spending for unusable studies and things such as counting ducks, as per Dennis Michael Lynch.
Senator James Lankford (R-OK) is trying to call attention to the problem in the best way he can. “For every one of these as we did last year, we’re focused on the same thing. We’re not just trying to raise the problem—we’re also trying to raise how do you solve it,” Lankford said to reporters.
In that same vein, Lankford also sought to raise awareness on the areas where the Obama White House has developed serious deficiencies.
This would include oversight of grants, regulatory policy, lack of efficiency, and poor coordination between government agencies.
Along the way, Lankford has also highlighted some increasingly bizarre ways the government has dropped the ball on spending. The statistics will definitely raise some eyebrows.
Just a few examples would include the government spending $180,000 on counting the number of sea ducks. They spent this money presumably because these ducks are an endangered species, but it’s highly questionable how this would provide any type of benefit to them.
Another oddball project had to have come straight from Michelle Obama and her obsessive compulsive fixation on school lunches.
An immense amount of money was spent on Mrs. Obama’s mission by determining whether food stamp recipients would be willing to buy healthier food items, such as “gas station tofu.”
All of this needless spending is symptomatic of a larger disease within government, and it is part of the reason why Donald Trump was elected instead of Hillary Clinton. Government waste is at odds with a middle class population who count every dime.
We have had presidents who overspend to disastrous ends. The worst one, of course, was Jimmy Carter, and his wallet habits cost him his reelection bid. Coming up on Carter’s heels would have to be Barack Obama, however. His spending habits are evident in these ridiculous projects.
Wouldn’t this money be better spent on improving our economy and getting Americans some jobs? Just a thought…
