Outrageous Sen. Flake Unveils His 'Egregious 8' Government Waste Tourney Bracket
In honor of March Madness, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ari.) created a tournament bracket to highlight some of the most notable examples of wasteful government spending.
The "Egregious Eight" shows the shocking truth about your tax dollars are being spent, Flake said on "Fox and Friends" today.
So who are some of the front-runners in the tourney?
You'd have to give a high seed to the National Institute of Health's $1 million study of marmosets in exercise balls on treadmills. Yes, you read that correctly.
The National Science Foundation's $707,000 shrimp "fight club," however, shouldn't be overlooked.
Other wasteful items poised for potential deep runs include a $5 million tailgate package and a $2 million effort to build jazz-playing robots.
