Today, the Senate is set to pass the new U.S. budget deal in all its spend-tastic glory. Lawmakers have hemmed and hawed about making any cuts to spending, despite countless examples of ridiculous decisions that have wasted taxpayers’ money.

So it’s timely that the office of Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) released its 2013 “Wastebook” yesterday, listing 100 examples it deems wasteful spending this year. In our infographic below, we’ve picked just a few of the highlights of your tax dollars at work.



TOPICS: Constitution/Conservatism; Crime/Corruption; Government; News/Current Events
KEYWORDS: evilgovernment; evilobamaregime; merrychristmas; ourchildrensfuture
Our feckless, childish but evil government, loves to spend money. After all it's not theirs and furthermore it's not there.

We're broke and they keep cobbling together 'deals' like they have their own television show and can dole money out to totally ignorant contestants.
