$19 billion in eye-opening government expenses.

What do robotic squirrels, menus for Martian meals and a musical about climate change have in common? They’ve all been made possible with taxpayer assistance, according to the latest survey of government waste put out by Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla. Known simply as the Waste Book, the report is a watchlist of eye-opening expenditures, which Coburn blames on a “let them eat caviar” attitude in Washington — at a time when “23 million of our fellow Americans do not have good jobs,” Coburn notes.

As you read each of the 100 projects costing over $18 billion outlined in this report, ask yourself:
 Can we can afford this at this time?
 Could this money have been better spent, or not spent at all?
 Is this a national priority or is this something benefiting a special interest?
 Does this fit the role of the federal government, as outlined in the U.S. Constitution?
