EPA staffers bilked taxpayers $15,000 for gym memberships

Despite EPA staffers complaining about President Donald Trump’s proposed budget cuts, it still didn’t stop them from charging taxpayers $15,000 for gym memberships.

Receipts obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show the Las Vegas Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) division purchased one-year “Super-Sport” 24 Hour Fitness memberships for 37 employees worth $399.99 a year.

The freeloading employees work at the EPA’s division in Las Vegas across the street from the University of Nevada (UNLV).

The EPA branch is also home to a library and research laboratory on campus, where EPA employees and contractors conduct research. The agency also leases five buildings from the university.

The revelations come after EPA employees told media outlets they were extremely upset with the president’s proposed budget cuts released last month.

In it, Trump brought EPA spending down to 1992 levels, or $5.7 billion. Some employees have reported going to work in tears while others are demoralized over Trump’s victory.

    Making and enforcing obnoxious regulations takes a physical toll on these people. If they need to put their hand in our pocket and call it love, who are we to object?
