The government is constantly finding new ways in which to waste our hard earned taxpayer’s money. They are not even wasting it on citizens of America.
People were quick to give out under the Bush presidency that we were spending too much abroad, but they keep quiet when we don’t spend it on our own people at home.
The Department of Health and Human Services is raiding several of its accounts, including money for Medicare, the Ryan White AIDS/HIV program and those for cancer and flu research to cover a shortfall in housing illegal youths pouring over the border at a rate of 255 a day.
HHS is trying to come up with $167 million to fund the Office of Refugee Resettlement that is accepting the youths, according to the Center for Immigration Studies.
Policy Director Jessica Vaughan said that insiders have told her that the funding crisis has forced the department to squeeze programs for money.
This means less money for Medicare and important health programs for US citizens and more for those who are not Americans.
