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: Half million for the NAACP’s Baltimore headquarters!


From Democratic Sen. Chris Von Hollen’s website:

Today, U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen, a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee and Subcommittee on Transportation, Housing and Urban Development, and Related Agencies (THUD), and Senator Ben Cardin, a member of the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee and its Subcommittee on Transportation and Infrastructure Issues, (both D-Md.) announced the inclusion of $34,681,000 in key Senate Committee legislation for community-led projects throughout Maryland.

Amongst those community-led 'projects?'

Project Name: NAACP Baltimore Headquarters Proposal
Applicant: Baltimore NAACP
Project Location: Baltimore City
Amount Included: $500,000
Description: Funds will be used to upgrade and expand the Baltimore NAACP headquarters so it can increase its services, including fresh produce distribution, free and reduced-cost office space for small women- and minority-owned businesses, and youth programs.

Bottom line: Even though the NAACP has often had a divisive agenda...


...it is a private organization.


WHY are American taxpayers on the hook for funding it?


We can think of many organizations that we would encourage people to donate to - but those groups have no right to federal dollars.


OUR tax dollars.


Would it be okay for the federal government to give a half million dollars to pro-gun or pro-life groups, too?
