[4/20/17]  Maybe it’s because Americans were writing out checks to the federal government Tuesday, Tax Day, for hundreds, or thousands, of dollars that the subject came up.

But on this Tax Day, delayed briefly this year because of the weekend and a D.C. holiday, Twitter is filled with comments about how much – and how unwisely – the federal government spends money.

For example, the Washington Free Beacon tweeted: “EPA purchased chairs costing $6,391 each. Spent $92 million on furniture in past 10 years.”

“How many of YOU would like to have spent more money on furniture over the past decade?” noted Twitchy, which headlined its attention-grabbing piece “Goat mating and fat lesbians? Tweets highlighting massive gov waste will enrage you on this #TaxDay.”

“You’ll never stop throwing up when you see how much of YOUR money the gov wastes,” wrote Sam J.

Some of the references were to legacy blunders by the government, such as putting American taxpayers on the hook for a $43 million gas station constructed in Afghanistan.
