Let's Cut Some Spending: Your tax dollars going toward torturing dogs and cats

Creative Commons/

In our Let's Cut Some Spending series, ForAmerica chronicles the many ways Washington wastes YOUR tax dollars - and as you’ll see, the list is endless.

Today’s offering: Let's stop our tax dollars from going towards torturing animals.

The Tampa Free Press reports:

Thanks to Florida Rep. Greg Steube, Republicans and Democrats may finally agree on something. A reduction, if not an end, to certain types of medical research on animals.
The White Coat Waste Project (WCW), a watchdog group that monitors federal spending on animal testing, noted that Steube, a Sarasota Republican, has drawn bipartisan support for an amendment that would curtail the use of dogs and cats for research.
Steube’s measure, which is co-sponsored by South Florida Democratic Rep. Jared Moskowitz, would block the National Institutes of Health from experimenting on dogs or cats unless the agency director notifies Congress at least 30 days in advance and assures lawmakers that the research is “medically necessary” and cannot be done with alternative species or models.
WCW reports that the amendment is also backed by Rep. Dina Titus, a Nevada Democrat, and Republican Reps. Troy Nehls of Texas and Brian Fitzpatrick of Pennsylvania.

This is a no brainer.

We all love our cats and dogs. We love our pets.

No harm should come to these animals - especially at our expense!

END this NOW.
