In these already troubling economic times, millions in federal economic stimulus money has been spent on the building and preserving of our national museums.
Within the past four years alone, $28 million has been spent on funding 55 transportation-related museums, including the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
- Some rationalize that the stimulus money is needed MUCH more in mending our current economic problems.
- Others feel that our national museums enrich our communities and give our future generations an abundance of knowledge, history and culture. They also help to improve tourism, which grows local economies.
We love our Corvette Museum, don't get us wrong... but should public money be used to fund the museum? So, we’ll leave the big question up to you… Where should our nation spend this stimulus money? Share your comments below.
