It’s not taxpayer money. Heres what wiki says:
In October 1999, the USOC created the USADA to begin operation in October 2000. USADAs status and alleged independence from the USOC contrasts the norm in the United States in which most professional sport organizations (MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL) manage the anti-doping aspects of their sports. As a result of USADAs ongoing multi-year contracts with the USOC and the sport national governing bodies (USA Track & Field, USA Cycling, USA Swimming, US Soccer, etc.) the agency is responsible for managing the anti-doping programs including testing and results management for each sports athletes and events throughout the year. Despite its name and status as the countrys official anti doping organization, USADA is a private organization and not subject to government oversight.
Now the 32 million dollars that LA and his team were paid by the USPS over just 4 years — that was taxpayer money.
“Now the 32 million dollars that LA and his team were paid by the USPS over just 4 years that was taxpayer money.”
That’s a bit misleading. It wasn’t tax money. It was money raised by the USPS through other means. Technically money that belonged to the citizenry though. Maybe a distinction without a difference.
