The wasteful spending by our government is no big secret as it has unfortunately been going on forever, but I just came across some information that brought our government wasteful spending practices to rock bottom.  During Covid the government came up with a not very well thought out idea with what it called the “Paycheck Protection Program” (PPP) which in principle, sounded good, but in practice, was a blatant abuse of the taxpayers’ money to the extent that it enriched the bank accounts of multimillion dollar law firms.  The government actually used the taxpayers’ hard earned money to make the already rich lawyers even richer by giving the rich lawyers a very underserved windfall for doing absolutely nothing but filling out a form.
