Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., went on a Twitter jaunt on Thursday to explain his top 12 examples of what he considers government waste.
He released his report, America’s Most Wasted: Runaway Spending.
The fourth in a series, in the end of this report introduction, he writes, “If Washington refuses to reign-in spending, future generations will bear the burden for Washington’s spending addiction.”
The Arizona Republicans' wittiest tweets include, “Miles Davis would be rolling in his grave over DOD spending $2.3M to build jazz playing robots #AmericasMostWasted” and “Ever wanted to read a book on Hello Kitty? Me neither, but Ed Dep't wasted $5K on #HelloKitty research #AmericasMostWasted.”
The roughly list ended with, “#Pentagon wasted $1M on doggy MRIs - that’s ruff! #AmericasMostWasted.” But, he added one more: “Bonus #AmericasMostWasted project: NIH awarded $51K to find out if Zebra finches slur their birdsongs when drunk. What’s next? Bird rehab?”
