6 Interesting Ways Your Tax Dollars Are Spent!

Did you know your tax dollars go to projects like these?

1.)       The University of New Hampshire was awarded $700,000 this year to study methane gas emissions from dairy cows…yes, dairy cows.  

2.)       The National Institute of Health spent approximately $442,340 to study the behavior of male prostitutes in Vietnam. If that isn’t money well spent, I don’t know what is.

3.)       $1.8 million of U.S. taxpayer dollars went to the “museum of neon signs” in Las Vegas, Nevada. Is your blood boiling yet?

4.)       The Conservation Commission of Monkton, Vermont got $150,000 from the federal government to construct a “critter crossing”.  Thanks to U.S. government money, the lives of “thousands” of migrating salamanders are now being saved. We can all breathe a sigh of relief.

5.)       The U.S. Census Bureau spent $2.5 million on a television commercial during the Super Bowl that was so poorly produced that virtually nobody understood what it was trying to say.

6.)       The National Institute of Health was given $800,000 in “stimulus funds” to study the impact of a “genital-washing program” on men in South Africa.
