16 dollar muffins? 10 dollar cookies? Government's EBT purchases!
This is the equivalent to the "government" on EBT cards imo and a slap in the face of we Americans trying to put food on our tables by a honest day's work. Our tax dollars goes to feed them muffins and cookies????


As the U.S. government grapples to find ways to trim the bloated federal deficit, a new report suggests officials might start with cutting out $16 muffins and $10 cookies.

.."We found the Department (of Justice) spent $16 on each of the 250 muffins served at an August 2009 legal conference in Washington," said a DOJ Office of Inspector General report released on Tuesday.

Actually I'm not surprised that is the cost for a muffin that isn't made with mono-unsaturated-bicarbonate or whatever junk we eat.

They still eat real food that doesn't make your body into a muffin top itself.

I bet someone "in" government has their family/friends bakery making these. Everything they spend gets funneled to someone they know or owe a favor to (another gov't employee who went along with a vote--their sons bakery or something).

I think the purchasers for the government needs to wake up and tell these greedy people thanks, but no thanks, and go elsewhere for their snacks. Duh! oh wait it doesn't come from their pockets...
