Your Tax Dollars at Work

September 13, 2012

Reflecting on the Democratic convention last week, National Review editor Rich Lowry remarked,

When Democrats say “We’re all in it together,” what they mean is that the Office of Extramural Research, Education, and Priority Populations in the Department of Health and Human Services needs twice as much funding.

I assumed his example was a joke, but no:  Our vast, sprawling government does indeed include an “Office of Extramural Research, Education, and Priority Populations”.  Its parent organization, the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, is supposed to be “for all Americans”, but people of some races are apparently more equal than others.

But then, I guess that’s not news.

    The irony of seeing Lowry’s face two inches away from an ad bought and paid for by Sherrod Brown attacking Josh Mandel is just too much.

  2. I'm not sure that's really irony Says:

    Your resident troll has a low tolerance for irony.
