In Senate floor remarks, Senator Rand Paul slammed the “wasteful” National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) studies that he says squander taxpayer money. The comments were during a debate on increasing the budget of the NSF by $29 billion.

Senator Paul lists numerous outrageous uses of taxpayer funds in his speech, saying, “You can’t make this stuff up.”

-“The NIH spent two million dollars in research to see if using a hot tub can lower stress.”

-“The NIH also spent about a million dollars to see if they could help people overcome their fear of dentists.”

-“The NIH spent almost seven million dollars of cancer research money to create an automatically flushing smart toilet.”

Big government spending is back with BIDEN and his socialist cronies. Cuts to pathetic studies like the ones above won’t happen until 100% FED Up! Americans begin to push back on the big spending.
