The New York Times has a story about a “rare gift” that the National Science Foundation is giving to a theater company:
"… awarded a $700,000 grant to the Civilians, a New York theater company, to finance the production of a show about climate change. “The Great Immensity,” …tells the story of Polly, a photojournalist who disappears while working in the rain forests of Panama. The grant is a rare gift to an arts organization from the foundation, a federal agency that pays for science, engineering and mathematics research and education."
The National Science Foundation’s website says the Foundation was created by Congress "to promote the progress of science; to advance the national health, prosperity, and welfare; to secure the national defense…"
Contrary to the Times’ portrayal, this isn’t a "rare gift." It’s theft. Theft from taxpayers. The National Science Foundation got $6.9 BILLION from you this year.
All next week, FOX Business Network will report on lots of spending nonsense in a special series called "They’re Burning Your Money."
