Between 2010 And 2012, The IRS Spent $50 Million On Conferences

 

 

 

 

” The IRS spent $135,350 on 15 guest speakers at a single conference in Anaheim, according to a report by the Treasury Inspector General’s report, released by the House Government Oversight Committee Tuesday. The report states that the IRS spent $50 million on such conferences between 2010 and 2012.

A breakdown of spending from the report:

• The IRS reported that it expended $50,187 on videos for the conference, but was unable to provide any details supporting this cost.

• IRS management contracted with 15 outside speakers for presentations at a total cost of $135,350. Costs for outside speakers included a $17,000 fee for a keynote speaker whose presentation included creating six paintings of famous people to reinforce his message of finding creative solutions to challenges. Two of the paintings were given away at the conference, three were donated to charity, and one was lost, according to IRS management. Another keynote speaker was paid $27,500 which included a $2,500 fee authorized for first class airfare.

• IRS employees made three planning trips at a cost of approximately $35,800 prior to the conference.

The IRS also paid over $30,000 for 45 IRS employees who reside in the local area to stay at the hotels and incur per diem expenses while at the conference.

• Numerous gifts/promotional items were provided to attendees at an estimated cost of more than $64,000.”

      Who in their right mind can justify these blatant wastes of taxpayer funds ? Add to this waste the current politicization of this alleged non-partisan agency and even liberals should be ashamed of this typical example of big government .

     By now all of our readers have most likely heard of some of the other recently publicized efforts by the IRS … we refer to the movies that were produced with your hard earned money , the Star Trek  and the Gilligan’s Island “parodies , but in case you haven’t had a chance to see these pieces of expensive trash we include them below .

 

 

     Words fail us as to what genius thought that these films were money well spent , but given the arrogant climate that appears to dominate the IRS and the rest of Obama’s federal government it really should come as no surprise . If you are not outraged you are either not paying attention or have overdosed on the Kool-Aid .

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

60 Completely Outrageous Ways The U.S. Government Is Wasting Money

 

 

 

” Is there anyone better at wasting money then the U.S. government?  Despite the sequester and all of the talk about “deep cutbacks”, the federal government continues to waste money in some of the most outrageous ways imaginable.  For example, does the U.S. government really have to spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to study the size and shape of the reproductive organs of ducks?  Does the U.S. government really have to spend 1.5 million dollars to study why so many lesbians are overweight?  There is so much waste that could still be cut out of the federal budget, and yet the very small sequester cuts that just happened are being described as “catastrophic” by many of our politicians.

The following are some of the completely outrageous ways that the U.S. government is wasting money…

#1 The National Science Foundation has given $384,949 to Yale University to do a study on “Sexual Conflict, Social Behavior and the Evolution of Waterfowl Genitalia”.  Try not to laugh, but much of this research involves examining and measuring the reproductive organs of male ducks.

#2 The IRS spent $60,000 on a film parody of “Star Trek” and a film parody of “Gilligan’s Island”.  Internal Revenue Service employees were the actors in the two parodies, so as you can imagine the acting was really bad.

#3 The National Institutes of Health has given $1.5 million to Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts to study why “three-quarters” of lesbians in the United States are overweight and why most gay males are not.

#4 The National Institutes of Health has also spent $2.7 million to study why lesbians have more “vulnerability to hazardous drinking”.

#5 The U.S. government is giving sixteen F-16s and 200 Abrams tanks to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt even though the new president of Egypt, Mohammed Morsi (a member of the Muslim Brotherhood), constantly makes statements such as the following

“Dear brothers, we must not forget to nurse our children and grandchildren on hatred towards those Zionists and Jews, and all those who support them”

#6 During 2012, the salaries of Barack Obama’s three climate change advisers combined came to a grand total of more than $370,000. “
