Let's Cut Some Spending: $1 million for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame



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 million for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame!

ABC News 4 reports:

Congress has until midnight to pass a $1.7 trillion budget or face a government shutdown.
The National Desk's Cayle Thompson spoke with Adam Andrzejewski Friday, with Andrzejewski noting that the budget includes "a significant amount of taxpayer money." "It's $16 billion doled out on 7,000 pet projects," Andrzejewski, who is the founder of openthebooks.com, a nonprofit organization based in Illinois. He added that $1 million has been earmarked for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Ohio, $2 million has been earmarked for the Universal Hip Hop Museum in New York, and two earmarks totaling $3.5 million for the Irish National Heritage Museum in Maine.

Now, we love rock n' roll and all kinds of other music - but is this really what our taxpayer dollars should be used for?

Yes, actually. Preserving our cultural artifacts is an important part of what our government should accomplish. The Smithsonian is an example of this.
