“Worst Waste of the Year” Report

Cato looks at Senator Tom Coburn’s “Worst Waste of the Year” report that was just released (pdf report here). Tad DeHaven on how nauseating it was to read through the projects in the report, including a ” $15,000 in HUD Community Development Block Grants for a voice mail service for the homeless” project. The report is defitely not light-hearted reading during these troublesome times, but we all must strike our own balance between blissful ignorance and jaded pessimism.

    Voice mail service for homeless people is actually not a *bad* idea.

    As I understand it, part of the  difficulty for homeless people to find work is that they need to include a contact number, which they don’t have, because they are homeless.

    I don’t need no stinkin’ balance. It is jaded pessimism all the way down.
