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: $20,600 for drag shows for minors in Ecuador!

Catholic News Agency reports:


The U.S. State Department has contributed $20,600 in taxpayer money to finance workshops and “drag queen” theater performances for young students, including minors, at the Abraham Lincoln North American Ecuadorian Center in Cuenca.
The country’s currency is the U.S. dollar.
The State Department website notes that the grant, awarded Sept. 23, seeks to “promote diversity and inclusion...”
In a statement to ACI Prensa, CNA’s Spanish-language sister news agency, Alicia Boroto, director of the Abraham Lincoln North American Ecuadorian Center, said Oct. 21 that her program seeks to provide a space for “cultural exchange and creative expression for adolescents and young adults to promote tolerance.”
She also said that the program is voluntary and “is aimed at young people 15 years of age and older, with parental consent.”

Unbelievable - and we shouldn't have to say it either.

Every law school in America should have a class on how to restrain government spending on non-constitutionally authorized spending. Block a bad expenditure, win a free quarter of college.
