Leave it to the government to spend hundred of thousands of dollars on something when it isn’t necessary or wanted.

But that’s exactly what they did when they spent $578,000 on a modular bathroom in a National Park. Yep, you read that right, the government spent a half-a-million dollars on a public toilet for a park, or as they called it a “comfort station.”

Here’s the breakdown of some of the “costs” for the majestic structure:

$78 a can for paint

Flowers that cost $700 per pound for seeds

More than a dozen engineers and other park workers to assist in the design and construction – $100,000

Other overlord costs – $80,000

And then the government will tell you that they have no money and need to raise your taxes.
