Your Stimulus Dollars at Work

The stimulus money was supposed to be directed to job creation, remember? Well, you will be happy to know that instead the government thought, in this economic context, it would be a good idea to spend $452,000 on “Respiratory Health Impacts of Wildfire Particulate Emissions Under Climate Change,” which is basically a study that will likely show that wildfires cause smoke and that smoke can cause respiratory issues.

We are also spending $233,825 on a study that looks at the question “why do Africans vote they way they do?”
