Mountain Lions Run on Treadmills for Tax Subsidies Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Wed, Oct 22, 2014, 01:54 am

Mountain lions can earn six-figures salaries from the federal government just for running on treadmills.

According to Fox News, "These and other examples of wasteful government spending were detailed by Republican Sen. Tom Coburn in his annual “Wastebook,” his final edition since he is retiring early next year."

Sen. Tom Coburn (R.-Ok.) is quoted as saying that, “I have learned from these experiences that Washington will never change itself. But even if the politicians won’t stop stupid spending, taxpayers always have the last word.”

As reported by Fox News, "The government also spent $856,000 to throw mountain lions on a treadmill and $171,000 to watch monkeys gamble. They also spent $331,000 on a study that led to a mind-blowing discovery, that "hungry people get cranky and aggressive."

No word yet on whether the mountain lions running on treadmills will receive Green Cards from President Barry Obama's Amnesty Bill.
