Report: US Government Spent At Least $945M On Advertising In 2010
“It is unclear how much the executive branch, let alone the federal government as a whole, spends on communications each year.”
–Congressional Research Service
It would be interesting to see what this “advertising” was. The picture in the news story shows a Medicare ad, which of course is just further promotion of the Welfare state. I can also recall seeing ads last year on TV promoting free cellphones paid for by the government for people without jobs.
