Must Watch: Stossel Gives 3 Foolish Examples of Government Spending
John Stossel was on “The O’Reilly Factor” tonight, where he gave three foolish examples of government spending.
Stossel said the federal government has put $100,000 toward an outhouse in an Alaska park. In the same neighborhood, you could buy a three-bedroom, two-bathroom house for $64,000, he said. Stossel said outhouses are available for sale online for just $700.
His second example of wasteful spending is a $1 million bus stop in Arlington, Va., which has heated floors. Stossel said the government has a plan for 24 more just like it.
Last but not least, the government has given nearly $5 million to a University of Tennessee healthy eating campaign called “Get Fruved.”
Watch Stossel and O’Reilly discuss examples of government waste above.
