Senator Rand Paul released his annual report on wasteful government spending Friday. It’s called the “Festivus” report, and it shows federal spending waste totaling $482 billion. It’s the eighth edition of the annual report.

Some of the highlights include the National Institutes of Health spending $2.3 million injecting beagle puppies with cocaine and $187,500 to verify that kids love their pets. The Department of Health and Human Services spent $689,222 to study romance between parrots, the NIH funded a $3 million annual research project to watch hamsters on steroids fight, and the U.S. Census Bureau spent $2.5 million on Super Bowl Ads.

Also on Friday, the house passed the $1.7 trillion spending bill, sending it to president Joe Biden’s desk.

David Williams, president of Taxpayers Protection Alliance, tells more about the spending bill and the “Festivus” report. They also discussed how to rein in wasteful government spending.
