The GOP already controlled the House even before their landslide election last month. So here are a few items those “fiscally conservative” Republicans decided to pay for with the money they will be stealing from you next year. This is part of a bill that wastes over $1 trillion. And I mean the entire $1.1 trillion because every last dime is a waste of money as far as I’m concerned including so called “Defense,” “Homeland Security,” “Social Security,” and every other scheme these thieves use to buy votes. I admit to basing this all on the Washington Post which is basically just Government propaganda. So that’s why there aren’t dollar amounts next to some of the more expensive items.
1. Obamacare (Fully Funded).
2. War in Afghanistan (conditioned on the Afghan government letting the American military stay there forever)
3. Amtrak $1.39 billion. Anyone outside of the Boston/NYC/DC area ridden one of these in their entire lives?
4. CDC $7 billion. (including $42 million to fight Ebola) I’m sure we’d all die of disease without billions spent on a center to control it.
5. Fighting Ebola $5.4 billion. This is a disease that killed a whole 1 person in America who wasn’t even an American.
6. Egypt about $1.5 billion.
7. US Embassies $5.4 billion.
8. EPA $8.1 billion. If the State didn’t protect the environment we’d have all died of pollution long ago. Just ask any Democrat.
9. Eric Cantor’s pet project to fund pediatrics $12.6 million. Someone should tell Eric he lost his reelection.
10. Pay raise for federal
11. FDA $2.6 billion. This is important because otherwise people would be obese and abuse prescription drugs.
12. Torture chambers in Guantanamo Bay.
13. Fighting heroin $7 million. I’m sure they’ll finally eradicate the scourge of heroin. They just needed a few more million dollars.
14. Immigration (Amnesty for Illegal Immigrants) $1 billion+
16. Israel $3.7 Billion (If you suggest this is too much you are a racist anti-Semite).
17. Libya (as long as it rubber stamps the US Benghazi investigation).
18. Jordan $1 billion+
19. Keeping marijuana illegal in DC
20. Transportation: $11 billion (including $150 million for DC subways).
21. Pay raise for our “heroes” who join the military and agree to kill foreigners as directed by Nobel Peace Prize winner Obama.
22. National Institute of Health $30.3 billion. I don’t even know what this is supposed to be. Didn’t they already give the CDC $7 billion?
23. Various Military Empire Building boondoggles: $9.7 Billion. Includes fighting ISIS, training Syrian Rebels to kill (I thought ISIS was Syrian rebels???), training Iraqis to kill, training Kurds to kill, “ongoing operations” in Europe (I don’t even want to know what this is), and bribing the Ukrainians to pick a fight with Russia that they can’t win.
24. Palestinian Authority
25. Pensions (not yours unless you work in some kind of Union job).
26. Post Office (Including the all important Saturday deliveries that must never end).
27. WIC $6.6 billion (this is like extra food stamps for poor women who have kids, but the fathers don’t bother to stick around).
28. Dept of Education $70.5 billion
30. Bureau of Land Management efforts to conserve sage-grouse habitats $15 million (don’t ask).
31. School lunch program
32. Preventing sexual assault in the military $257 million (Good Luck!)
33. United Nations
34. US Capitol Police: $348 million ($196K per officer)
35. Restoring the Capitol Dome: $21 million
36. Veterans of the Military Empire
37. Enforcing whistleblower laws $500,000. Hopefully that doesn’t mean punishing whistleblowers, but that’s the only thing I can think of that would cost money.
38. White House: $222 million. I have an idea to save this money. Sell it to the highest bidder and let Emperor Obama pay for his own damn house!!!
39. Paying ranchers whose livestock are eaten by wolves $1 million.
40. Yucca Mountain. Just in case they decide to stuff it with Nuclear waste at a later date.
Thank you GOP and all you Republican voters for flushing another trillion dollars down the toilet!!! Oh well, I’m sure there’s more where that came from!
