Description


Federal Fumbles: 100 Ways the Government Dropped the Ball Volume 2 2016 To address America's outrageous $19 trillion federal debt, we need a growing economy and responsible spending reductions in the federal budget. Senator Lankford's "Federal Fumbles: 100 ways the government dropped the ball" report is an annual collection of specific examples of wasteful federal spending, as well as negative regulatory impact to the economy. Lankford believes he has an obligation to solve the troubles of our nation, not just complain, which is why for every problem identified there is a recommended solution. There is a way to eliminate wasteful, ineffective, or duplicative program spending; develop oversight methods to prevent future waste; and find ways to get us back on track. In his second annual "Federal Fumbles" report, U.S. Sen. James Lankford details 100 examples of what he and his staff feel are inefficient uses of federal tax dollars, or ways that Washington has "dropped the ball." Some examples of alleged waste in the report: NIH spent $2 million studying how children perceive food, and specifically whether 5-year-olds will still eat food that has been sneezed on. A $200,000 grant to study fish consumption in Tanzania, and $500,000 to help locate ancient church cemeteries in Iceland. The U.S. Embassy in Britain spent $75,000 to have British citizens travel to America to watch volunteers. The U.S. wind energy industry still received $6 billion in annual federal subsidies. Three federal agencies combined to spend almost $500,000 on a medieval smells exhibit at a museum.
