Too Much Waste, Not Enough Awesome?

July 14, 2010

The National Taxpayers Union has long been a critic of wasteful government spending. At times, it can be like a game of whack-a-mole: successfully reform wasteful government spending and another instance pops up. So how can we win?

Well, according to the Onion, we can't. Instead, we should accept that "outrageous misappropriation of public funds is inevitable" and fight to ensure that our government will at least waste taxpayers' money on awesome stuff. After all, why settle for boring boondoggles when we could be getting awesome boondoggles?
