Waste of the Day: Paying old people to play World of Warcraft! #CutWaste

After Obama’s call for raising taxes to avert the sequester yesterday, the House has decided each day to publish a specific “Waste of the Day” that should be cut instead of raising taxes:

Today’s project used tax dollars to pay seniors to play video games. The National Science Foundation awarded a grant of $1.2 million to pay seniors to play the video game “World of Warcraft” to analyze the impact it had on their brain. The President and Senate Democrats claim they have cut all the spending they can in their recent proposal, yet seniors continue to be paid to play video games.
