Taxpayer Money Flushed Down the Toilet... Literally!

When we said the Federal Stimulus would be like flushing money down the toilet, we didn't exactly think that the Federal Government was going to take us quite so literally!

The New York Post yesterday reported that: 

"The feds are spending tens of millions of stimulus dollars to repair and build toilets across the nation, in an outflow of taxpayer funds that critics have branded "potty pork."

From humble sylvan outhouses to "historic" restrooms, cash from the $787 billion stimulus is going to spruce up or completely replace aging toilets, government releases show.

In New Mexico alone, the feds are spending $2.8 million for toilets in national forests."

The facts speak for themselves.
