We keep hearing in the news about services that will be cut and people losing their jobs due to the sequester. I have a friend who is a research scientist, and he said they are all on the edge of their seats waiting to see what funding will be cut for research projects.
You know what isn't getting cut though? The $62 million dollars the Department of Energy is spending on it's NASCAR team that hopes to race in 2015. Because, see, it's more important to spend millions of dollars so an electric car can make left hand turns and make fast battery changes than in actually working on new clean energy sources. That's just stupid. The fact that it's unaffected by sequester shows our federal government is more interested in advertising and propaganda than projects that deliver results.
