Rand Paul: Summer edition of ‘Waste Report’ spells out $50 billion in big government spending

U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), chairman of the Federal Spending Oversight and Emergency Management (FSO) Subcommittee for the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee (HSGAC) released the Summer 2019 edition of The Waste Report this week.

Paul notes, “For too long, the federal government has thrown fiscal responsibility out the window in favor of limitless spending, with a $22 trillion debt and skyrocketing deficits as the result.

“Not only does this artificially limit what we can achieve as a country, but it also poses a grave threat to our national security.  As part of my efforts to fight for reform, I have worked to make sure government’s wasteful spending does not slip under the radar.

“On Thursday, I issued the Summer 2019 edition of my Waste Report, which once again turns the spotlight on just some of what the big spenders are doing with your hard-earned money.

“In this edition, which presents over $50 billion in waste, you will find stories about your government building up Tunisia’s political system and the Pakistani film industry, supporting “green growth” in Peru, teaching English and IT skills at madrassas, studying frog mating calls, and making improper payments.  And that’s unfortunately not all!”

Here is the spending outlined in the Waste Report
