It’s a fact: animal experimentation is a big government program. And If you believe big government programs are inherently wasteful, inefficient, and incompetent, then you must question taxpayer-funded animal experiments.

Every year the government wastes over $12 BILLION in tax dollars to pay for cruel, unnecessary, and bizarre animal experiments.

Guess who picks up the bill? You do, every April 15.

For example, the federal government’s recent economic “stimulus” spending program wasted $144,541 of our tax dollars on a single experiment to study how cocaine affects addicted monkeys at Winston-Salem College. The result? We “learned” that cocaine is bad for you.

For over 30 years, the government has been handing out your tax dollars to Professor Marilyn Carroll at the University of Minnesota to forcibly addict animals to all sorts of illegal, recreational street drugs. During the last decade alone, government bureaucrats and politicians spent over $3.6 million on her experiments to study how heroin, crystal meth, and Angel Dust affect menstruating monkeys.

Taxpayer-funded animal experiments like these are the definition of government-run junk “science.” Unfortunately, this is just the tip of the iceberg for Uncle Sam’s wasteful animal experimentation budget.

The government’s pattern of ridiculous research is wasteful and shameful, and it is repeated over and over again in the taxpayer-funded animal experiments you’re paying for. But don’t take our word for it. Have a look at just a handful of the bizarre, junk-science studies that are typical in the government’s $12 billion per year animal experimentation budget:

Government Scientists Conclude Junk Food and Lack of Exercise May Contribute To Obesity.

Taxpayer-funded animal experimenter Kevin Grove, director of the government’s so-called “obese resource” at the Oregon National Primate Research Center, isolates frightened monkeys in tiny cages while feeding them fatty foods and sugary drinks. In his own words: “we are trying to induce the couch-potato style.” (New York Times, 2/19/11) After his taxpayer-funded study is completed, he kills the monkeys to examine their brains. The New York Times reports that some private sector companies “see no need to use primates to study obesity and diabetes.” However, Grove happily rides the big government gravy train all the way to the bank as his monkeys languish in solitary confinement for years. Grove’s wasteful experiments cost Americans over $2.1 million in taxes…

    Posted, Tweeted and Pinterested (is that even a word lol). If this were really still We the People. We would have a voice as to how our tax dollars are spent. I am so tired of the government abusing resources, illegally taken from us to commit acts a majority of the people are against. Animal testing, horse slaughter, murder of wolves, bears, dolphins and every other creature on Terra 3. Unfortunately, corporately owned mainstream media does not tell people stories like this. Our world is completely upside-down.
