John Stossel Plays 'Is It Real or Fake' Government Spending With the Fox and Friends Crew

John Stossel played "Is It Real or Fake?" with Steve Doocy, Brian Kilmeade, and Gretchen Carlson this morning on Fox and Friends. For instance, did the government really spend $35,000 on a library book dispensing machine, or did John make that one up?

Here are the other four spending examples:

$686,000 to study

"World of Warcraft" gamers and Etsy users

$100,000 to test water pressure levels in NYC public housing

$2.3 million to build a pedestrian walkway under I-5 in California

$7 million to research a more "natural" rubber to use in tires

Watch the video, and see you how you did!
