Last month, WCW founder and president Anthony Bellotti was a guest on the Heartland Institute’s Budget and Tax News podcast to discuss our work to end $15 billion-plus in wasteful government spending on animal experiments.

From the summary:

In this episode of the weekly Budget & Tax News podcast, research fellow and managing editor Jesse Hathaway talks with Anthony Bellotti, president of White Coat Waste, a coalition of animal lovers of all political stripes who say government agencies should be more transparent and less wasteful with the lives and well-being of our furry companions.

Bellotti says government agencies, such as the U.S. Department of Defense and the Department of Veterans Affairs are failing to disclose what they are doing and how much they are spending on grisly-sounding medical experiments.

There are better, more efficient ways for the government to advance medical science, Bellotti says, and those ways often don’t involve puppies and other critters—but do involve promoting private research and more accountability to taxpayers.
