TPA Presents the Taxpayer Turkeys of 2014!
11/26/2014 at 02:57 pm - David Williams and Michi Iljazi

Tomorrow, millions of people will gather around their dinner table with their friends and family to celebrate the Thanksgiving holiday. There are many things that the Taxpayers Protection Alliance (TPA) has to be thankful for, but sadly for taxpayers there is a great deal not to be thankful for and TPA thought it would be timely to once again take some time to highlight some of the biggest ‘bird’ens on taxpayers this year with the Taxpayer Turkeys of 2014! This year there were five, two more than last year! The Taxpayer Turkeys of 2014 are the Catfish Program, Obamacare, National Institutes of Health, Chattanooga EPB, and Net Neutrality!  Watch the video below to see some of the best of the worst that taxpayers shouldn’t be thankful for this year.

Taxpayers will say "you are wrong" as they learn more about the costs.

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building certification system

The Taxpayers Protection Alliance is launching an investigation into the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) green building certification system. On January 17, 2013, TPA submitted three Freedom of Information Act requests trying to find out what collaboration took place between the General Services Administration and the U.S. Green Building Council when LEED was adopted.
