There are many things American citizens do not want their taxpayers funding. Planned Parenthood is probably the most notable and controversial, but our tax dollars go towards plenty of disputatious or frivolous programs and projects. Whether it is paying for prisoners' sex-change operations, welfare with no work requirements, the abysmal failure that was the Obamacare website, bridges to nowhere, or cushy luxuries for elected officials, the American taxpayers fund some outrageous things for our government.
Perhaps you thought we hit rock bottom with the “Fast and Furious” gunwalking scandal, where the ATF knowingly allowed dangerous assault weapons to cross into Mexico in hopes of tracking cartel bosses. Not only did they fail to do so, but Mexican officials discovered guns that can be traced back to the program at the scenes of over 150 murders. One of those guns also ended up in the hands of the criminal who murdered U.S. Border Patrol agent, Brian Terry.
American taxpayers also pay for the incarceration of terrorists at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, who receive better treatment and accommodations than most common criminals in the United States.
