( – In a 74-page report entitled ‘Department of Everything,’ Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) outlined how $67.8 billion dollars can be saved by cutting non-defense spending at the Department of Defense, including $6 million on researching the science behind storytelling, medical research and alternative energy.

Coburn held a press conference on Thursday to release his report.

“We looked at the entire Pentagon, and this is just one section of it on areas where the Pentagon works that has nothing to do with defense,” Coburn said.

The report shows that the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency has spent $6 million through 12 taxpayer-funded grants, including a two-day workshop in San Francisco entitled “Neurobiology of Narratives.”
