San Francisco politicians were red in the face after citizens embarrassed them with one action

Most elected officials love nothing more than to waste taxpayers’ dollars. 

Many government-funded projects often go over budget and fall behind schedule as a result. 

And San Francisco lawmakers are red with humiliation as fed-up taxpayers react in this bizarre way. 

This expensive project exemplifies the fraudulent nature of many municipal governments

Ronald Reagan once famously said, “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the Government, and I’m here to help.”

This timeless adage applies now more than ever, with the federal government, state governments, and municipal governments across the land wasting money like there is no tomorrow. 

San Francisco for example unveiled a new line of public toilets last year that comes with a jaw-dropping price tag of $1.7 million per toilet. 

Earlier this week, a resident named Leslie Crawford put together a party to cynically celebrate the arrival of one of these million-dollar toilets in Noe Valley. 

Per Crawford to ABC 7 News, “You know, this made world news so it was time to take back the narrative and if people are making fun of us, we’ll make fun of us too.”

Locals of the Noe Valley neighborhood banded together and made toilet and bathroom-themed snacks, and constructed signs, figures, and other party favors with a bathroom theme. 

Although these San Francisco residents were able to make light of the situation, many have voiced their outrage with this insanely expansive project. 

In 2022, one resident told ABC 7 News, “Put it to better use. It’s ridiculous. $1.7 million for a stupid bathroom.”

It did not take long for people around the nation to take note of this insanely expansive toilet, prompting elected officials to look for ways to reduce the cost.  

Fortunately, Chad Kaufman, owner of Public Restroom Company, stepped in to donate the toilet to the City of San Francisco. 

Even with the free toilet, city officials disclosed that the installation and other expenses related to the installation of this single toilet come with a $300,00 price tag to taxpayers. 

These toilets do come with some impressive features, including anti-microbial handles and streamlined cleaning features, however, nothing about this toilet should warrant a multi-million dollar price tag, as it did at the beginning. 

How a toilet could possibly cost taxpayers over a million dollars

When reports of San Francisco’s multi-million dollar toilets first spread in 2022, people wondered how a toilet could possibly cost that much regardless of its features. 

After all, $3 million can buy a mansion in most parts of America and can buy a decent residence in San Francisco. 

The answer lies in government waste.  In cities like San Francisco, unions, inspectors, and bureaucrats all come to the trough when these projects take shape, costing taxpayers dearly. 

Layers of red tape also add to the cost and complexity of these seemingly simple projects.
