The government is definitely wasting tax payer money on popular ideas and theories more then on what actually needs to be done. They are supplying money to many republicans and democrats instead of putting money into schools, reducing taxes, and other things this country needs more money to be given to it.
Money is being wasted, and it is not the money being spent on social programs or educational systems. It is the money being spent on patronage, on overspending for items needed because of padding and deal making, and the money spent on defense and the military. We as taxpayers have no real idea what is going on.
