An annual report released Tuesday highlighted some frivolous U.S. government spending, including a pizza from a 3-D printer.
Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn released his yearly "Wastebook," detailing examples of questionable projects using taxpayer money.
It included a more than $600,000 push by the State Department to get more likes on Facebook and $10,000 to a dance company for its performance featuring electricity linemen dancing on utility poles.
“This report speaks volumes about why American people have lost confidence in government. Why Congress’s rating is at 6 percent,” said Sen. Coburn.
