Whenever you hear on the news that a study has been conducted for lets say for example “The Dangers Of Eating Meat That’s Been Cooked Well Done Or Any Health Related Issue…Its like Ripley’s ..believe it or not..The one conducting the study most proberly received a Federal grant to study it..These grants are known as Government” Pork Barrel” giveaways to influencial and well connected people.This shameful waste of our tax dollar is equally conducted on both sides of the isle by The both the Republicans and Democratics.We would venture to say that it’s most likely that there isn’t one member of Member of either Congress or the Senate That doesn’t engage in being part and parcial to Pork Barrel grants are routinely tagged onto Congressional bills ..These grants can be anywhere in the range of $600,00 way up into million$ of dollar$ per grant..Many of these “Grant Studies” have not only been conducted before but many many times before yielding the exact same results. This may be the biggest waste of U.S.Tax Dollars yet ..Like We mentioned hundreds if not thousands of these type of grants are regularly passing muster through the halls of Congress yearly. So I don’t give much credence whenever I hear advice from the people conducting these studies.So we at the Lerman Report urge everyone to call or write your representatives and voice your displeasure and demand more Transparency on whats is include in Congressional Bills.
