New Coburn Report on Stimulus Silliness

Senator Tom Coburn’s (R-OK) office has released a new report documenting 100 examples of questionable stimulus spending. From a public policy perspective, it’s a tidy illustration of why the government doesn’t do a very good job of spending other people’s money. In terms of entertainment value, it’s a pretty amusing read in a sad sort of way. Although, I do have one question for the Coburn staffers who included the story of a cruise company receiving a million dollars in anti‐​terrorism funds: Did you not see Speed 2?!
