Pay Us Back: John Boehner Has Wasted $2.1 Million On New Benghazi Investigation

John Boehner’s House Benghazi Select Committee has wasted $2.1 million in taxpayer money investigating the already disproven Republican Benghazi conspiracy theory, and it is time for taxpayers to demand a refund.

Bloomberg reported:

The tally: $1,795,017 from the time the panel began work in May through the end of 2014. More than three-fourths of the total went to compensate staff.

So far in 2015, there’s only one report to examine. It showed that the House Select Committee on Benghazi spent $289,085 in January.

The grand total, so far, is just less than $2.1 million.

The total that has been spent on the Benghazi investigation will likely be dwarfed by the amount of taxpayer money that House Republicans will spend on investigating emails. $2.1 million doesn’t sound like much money in terms of government spending, but for the same amount House Republicans could provide a month of food assistance to more than 8,000 needy American families. It would be nice if the Clinton email obsessed media would ask these hungry Americans if they would rather have food for a month, or know what Hillary Clinton did with her emails.

I suspect that hungry people would rather have food than “get the facts” on Benghazi. House Republicans are not only wasting money with their bogus investigations. They are also misusing resources.

John Boehner owes taxpayers millions of dollars, and it is time that they demanded a refund. (Sorry, Boehner, your credit is no good here, and no we won’t take a personal check.) A million here or there means nothing to House Republicans, but a few dollars can make all the difference between eating and not eating for millions of hungry Americans.

The message to Speaker Boehner is simple. Pay us back.
