The government pays for a lot of research that has little value, most everyone would agree. And California GOP Rep. Darrell Issa, darrell,issa,government,researchchairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, is doing something about it, Politico reports.

During the 2011 budget process he’s taking particular aim at research on menopause, condoms, malt liquor and video games, Politico reports. Issa introduced amendments Tuesday that would put a halt to government-funded studies of how well men use condoms, the effects of integral yoga in treating hot flashes for menopausal women, whether video games improve senior citizens’ mental health, the use of marijuana in combination with malt liquor and opiates and the ramifications of a soda tax.

“We could’ve done 100 of these if we wanted to,” said Issa spokesman Kurt Bardella.
