Let's Cut Some Spending: $1.1 million to get mice drunk


Remember the absolutely critical Omnibus spending bill Congress muscled through at the end of last year? It was 4,000 pages that no one read and cost taxpayers $1.7 trillion.

In our Let's Cut Some Spending series, ForAmerica will chronicle parts of the 2021 and 2022 spending bills from a variety of sources that you probably don't know about - programs, grants and spending of all kinds that should have never happened in the first place and many that are still happening.


Today’s offering: $1.1 million to get mice drunk!


Senator Rand Paul said during a Senate Homeland Security Committee last month:

Rather than takes steps to restore fiscal health, Congress buries its head in the sand and doles out more and more taxpayer money every year to the executive branch with no strings attached, crosses its finger and hopes the problem will fix itself...
For years I’ve documented outlandish spending in my waste annual report. For example, NIH spent more than $1.1 million to get mice drunk. Apparently we’re not aware of what happens when you drink too much.

Drunk mice? We don't even want to ask - and we're all paying for it.
