    Why exactly are taxpayer dollars going to a bicycling team?

    Why is taxpayer money going to bicycle teams irrelevant?

    I don't really care if Armstrong cheated or not, I do a little - but not too much, but what I really care about is tens of millions of taxpayer money funding it.

    I don't think those were tax dollars funding it, though. I think that, as mentioned earlier, the post office is largely self funded.

    I don't know about the tax dollars.

    The post office sponsored the team. This appears to be the source of the question in the thread title.

    a team that received tens of millions of American taxpayer dollars in funding

    According to the article, tens of millions of TAXPAYER DOLLARS IN FUNDING.

    The thread title says nothing about the PO and everything about taxpayer funding.

    The post office presumably sponsored the team for publicity they got their moneys worth.
