A Republican Finally Complained About Trump’s Wasteful Spending, But It’s Not What You Think

Today, the US Capitol groundskeepers announced the completion of a wonderful project – a ramp on the Reflecting Pool so that Washington ducks can reach the water easier.

Of course, it took only about an hour before some idiot Republican decided to make a mountain out of a molehill and use the ramp as an example of “government waste.”

That idiot was Rep. Mark Walker (R-NC), who thought he was being real clever when he took to Twitter to take a stand against the purchase of some wood and paint.

Out of all real things to be outraged about on Capitol Hill, this is Walker’s biggest priority. Not the fact that the President has spent $61 million in taxpayer money for security on his every-week vacations, or that he himself just voted to gut $880 million from Medicaid to give a tax cut to billionaires, or that the President is handing out state secrets to the Russians.

No, it’s the construction of a duck ramp that really grinds his gears.

It goes without saying that Twitter immediately pounced on his outrageous hypocrisy.

For the record, the ramp is in use and is an incredibly successful use of government spending.
