#CutWaste: Paying People to Play Video Games

#CutWaste: Paying People to Play Video Games

PaytoPlay

President Obama held a press conference yesterday, where he once again called for raising taxes on hardworking Americans to avert his sequester. At a time when the federal government is spending billions of dollars on wasteful projects, no one in Washington should be talking about increasing taxes on the American people.

Each day the House will push a specific “Waste of the Day” project we should cut instead of raising taxes.  Today’s project used tax dollars to pay seniors to play video games. The National Science Foundation awarded a grant of $1.2 million to pay seniors to play the video game “World of Warcraft” to analyze the impact it had on their brain.  The President and Senate Democrats claim they have cut all the spending they can in their recent proposal, yet seniors continue to be paid to play video games.
