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.”
