John McCain loves to cite so-called wasteful spending that’s not really wasteful at all
Have you heard the one about the government spending $650,000 for beaver management in North Carolina and Mississippi?
As Sen. John McCain laughingly puts it: “How does one manage a beaver?”
But that’s not funny. Rather, it’s stupid.
As we see HERE:
In reality, $650,000 in stimulus funds hired workers to disrupt beaver dams, which in turn prevented significant flood damage to farms, timber lands, roadways, and other infrastructure in the area. The Arizonan neglected to do his homework, and ended up blasting a worthwhile project for no reason.
