Government Waste: Real or Fake, Which Spending Example is Real?

Last year Bankrupting America released a video called “Real or Fake” that quizzed citizens on whether crazy-sounding government spending examples were, well, real or fake. The answers, unfortunately, weren’t good news for taxpayers.

Watch Real or Fake, part 2 below. Play along with the participants, the answers may surprise you.
