Navajo Nation Wins $554 Million from U.S. Government Because Of Mismanagement Of Funds

Taxpayers weep.

The Navajo Nation will mark history Friday when it officially announces a $554 million settlement from the U.S. government, putting an end to years of litigation.

The landmark agreement stems from a 2006 lawsuit in which the nation says the U.S. mismanaged trust fund assets dating back to 1946.

If only American taxpayers could sue the federal government for mismanagement of our money. Not for a settlement that we would have to finance anyway, of course, but to have the government’s grubby paws removed from our money. We not only don’t have that luxury, but we’re on the hook for the government’s fiscal incompetence.

But I’m an “extremist” for not liking this.
