Joe Biden’s federal government is on a drunken spending spree for its offices in Washington D.C. and throwing $3.3 BILLION BUCKS are office furniture — despite increasing the number of employees working at home — and buying useless items like solar-powered picnic tables.
It’s just another example of how out of control our national government has become and how the elitist feds are thumbing their noses at we, the people.
The data was recently released by budget watchdog group OpenTheBooks.com which found a shocking amount of wasteful spending on office supplies, furnishings, and decorations for federal buildings.
Per the New York Post:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention spent $237,960 on roughly 30 solar-powered picnic tables while the vast majority of its workforce stayed home during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The State Department paid more than $117,250 for as many as 40 luxurious Ethan Allen leather recliners to fill its embassy building in Islamabad, Pakistan.
And the Federal Emergency Management Agency and Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency spent $284,000 and $213,828, respectively, to spruce up their mostly empty conference rooms.
The extravagant purchases were all part of an eye-popping $3.3 billion federal agencies spent on new office furniture between 2020 and 2022, a watchdog report exclusively obtained by The Post shows.
“In one particularly “egregious example,” the group said the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation spent nearly $15 million on new furniture — or $14,400 for each of its 1,000 employees,” the paper added.
These agencies simply need to be eliminated.
They are long past being reformed. We need a president who will pledge to take a scythe to these agencies, and damn the consequences for reelection.Commentary
