America's Most Notorious Overspenders — Caught Red-handed
Think we're just here to make you laugh? Think again. Although all the ways politicians are spending U.S. tax dollars (and we do make fun of them in our show) are laughable, our real goal here is to reveal the truth about government waste, fraud and abuse, and to empower viewers to take action against the issues that matter to them. We're more than a show about wasteful spending. We're a group of citizens dedicated to bringing back fiscal responsibility. Here's how Wasted America works:
- Get the Facts.
We start by consulting government watchdogs and political insiders to learn more about budget problems that need to be brought to light. Next, we create our show, a nonpartisan political satire designed to expose fiscal waste, in a way that makes even the most boring government spending bills seem interesting. (Cartoons help.) We fully vet all information before releasing each episode.
- Collect Votes.
This is where you come in - and we really need your vote to make a difference. Visit the voting page to cast your vote and let politicians know how you feel about government waste.
- Shame the Spenders.
Now here's the fun part. Once we get the requisite number of votes, we'll perform stunts designed to shame the responsible parties into action — or at least into paying attention. Don't worry. We'll be sure to get it all on film. You can help, too. Visit our store and send your own messages; get in on a political prank or buy a Wasted America T-shirt. Become a sponsor!
- Follow Up.
We tally the votes, contact the politicians and follow up with those who don't return our calls, texts and emails. Then, we follow up again. And again. And again. (We're worse than that ex-boyfriend/girlfriend from high school. Visit the scoreboard to see how we're doing now!)
We don't give up easily, and neither do our viewers. Help us put the pressure on politicians by visiting the store to send “gifts of shame” to the worst perpetrators. Visit Wasted America.com often to view new episodes, vote on issues and check our progress. We're working hard to end government waste. And we can't do it without you.
