The $2.5 Million Government Superbowl Ad

Now, I know it’s a drop in the bucket of Obama’s $3.9 trillion budget, but if the Government is in the process of tightening the purse strings and cutting waste, why does the Census Bureau need to spend $2.5 million on a Superbowl ad to tell people to fill out their census forms?  That $2.5 million price tag is only a fraction of the $132 million the census bureau plans to spend on advertising in 28 languages as part of a campaign to get people to fill out their census cards.  So…why can’t this be cut?

I am seriously waiting for someone in this Administration to actually flush tax dollars down a toilet. Actual greenbacks. Actual porcelain bowl.

I’m pretty sure Obama is already flushing dollars. It’s what he uses for toilet papper when he’s out of copies of the US Constitution and the bible.
