If you're in public housing, wear a sweater

Who: Department of Housing and Urban Development

What: Spending $1 billion annually on wasteful utility costs for public housing and subsidized rentals instead of providing better insulation and more energy-efficient appliances.

Why it's an outrage: The government's involvement in housing means it has to pay attention to how much the utilities cost. Poorly insulated housing amounts to burning taxpayer dollars to keep warm.

Where to vent: Call HUD's inspector general at 800-347-3735
