Former Victorian Labor minister Adem Somyurek accused journalists of racism to try to stop them from investigating taxpayer-funded grants awarded to their factional allies, an anti-corruption inquiry has heard. #IBAC 

The squalid nature of the Victorian Labor Party, its rampant branch-stacking and cronyism, abuse of taxpayer funding and indifference to serving the public interest has been on display day after day over the past week at the hearings of Victoria’s IBAC.

Did you get the math right on your taxes? The Taxpayer Advocate at the IRS reports the agency has had to do about nine million math corrections on tax returns this year. That’s about 14 times as many mistakes as the year before.

He says Senate Republicans subpoenaed voter information across the Commonwealth and caused court challenges. He wants to raise awareness, calling it a theft of taxpayer dollars. --

The Biden family has spent decades in Washington, DC enriching themselves by selling access to Joe Biden's taxpayer funded office. Hunter Biden is corrupt. Jim Biden is corrupt. Joe Biden is corrupt. MUST WATCH!!!

Joe Biden offered US taxpayer funded aid to a foreign leader in exchange for his help in lying to the American people about the dire situation in Afghanistan — part of a scheme to use the presidency to protect Biden’s personal political interests. #QuidProJoe 

I don't know who needs to hear this, but refusing to disclose the corporations receiving $500,000,000,000 in taxpayer-funded bailouts is just about as corrupt as it gets.

I don't know who needs to hear this, but passing a $740,000,000,000 taxpayer-funded bill to pad our bloated military budget as 20,000,000 Americans risk eviction is the real looting in America.

No industry -- not airlines, not hotels, not cruise ships -- should be bailed out. They can stay in business by borrowing at rock-bottom rates, using their assets as collateral. Taxpayer money should be used to bail out people, not corporations.

As a former secretary of labor, I can tell you that the airlines don't deserve a $50 billion bailout. In the last 10 years, they spent 96% of their cash flow to buy back shares of their own stock in order to boost executive bonuses. They shouldn't see a dime of taxpayer money.

You spent $325,000 in taxpayer money to stage a walkout of a 49ers game in order to make perfectly clear you don’t stand by the right to peacefully protect.

I just voted no on the partisan #COVID19  bill. Here's why: while nurses are being forced to make their own masks and gowns, McConnell and Trump are busy creating a taxpayer-funded slush fund for their buddies. I will stay here as long it takes to get this done the right way.

This whole impeachment sham has been a taxpayer-funded campaign stunt for the Democrats. They took Americans’ hard-earned dollars and funneled them into years worth of baseless investigations meant to discredit and disparage the President.
