Where do you imagine the money you pay in taxes is sent? The answer can come in a number of forms, and many of them are true to a certain extent. This includes roads, schools, and other crucial services that come from our contributions as citizens.

Unfortunately, while some of your money is indeed going to things that are important, the truth of the matter is that a great deal of your tax money is also being wasted. The sad reality is that the U.S. Government is still a government that engages in a stunning amount of waste. We aren’t just talking about a few dollars here. The amount is somewhere in the vicinity of billions, and this is just from one year to the next.

Our taxes are an essential part of how the United States provides citizens with the services they need. Still, when one considers the amount of government waste that is going on at the same time, it is difficult to not feel at least a little outraged.

How The US Government Wastes Your Money
Quite frankly, there are ways in which the U.S. Government wastes the money of hard-working citizens that will take you by surprise. Let’s take a look at just a few examples of the various ways in which the United States Government wastes the money of taxpayers just like you:

• Duplicative aid: Remember Hurricane Sandy? While many benefitted from the assistance of the government, there was also some significant wastage. 250-million in duplicative aid for Hurrican Sandy was wasted.
• Pentagon puppy project: The United States has wasted over one million dollars on a project that involved puppies.
• Old technology: Rather than update technology that is in dire need of an upgrade, the U.S. Government spends around 55-billion of its 80-billion dollar technology budget on propping up things that should have been replaced ages ago.
• U.S. Wine market: Over 44-million dollars has been spent on trying to restore the beleaguered U.S. wine market. One of the biggest problems with this example is the sad fact that massive, multimillion dollar companies like Ocean Spray are getting some of that money.
• Chewing tobacco: The United States recently spent 500, 000 dollars on a campaign designed to stop Americans from chewing tobacco.
• Homeland Security: Forming Homeland Security took the United States a lengthy period of thirteen years. It wound up costing the American people more than 180 million dollars.

These are just a few examples of obscene government waste.
