As bad as the revelation last night was, it turns out that blowing $4.2 Billion on illegal child tax credits is merely pocket change for the IRS. It seems that they cannot even manage their core duties, and have blown another $13.6 Billion in mishandling the Earned Income Tax Credit across the US. Human Events has the story, here.
As unbelievable as it seems, this is really just one more incidence of incompetence in a Federal Department that employs nearly 100,000. How many incompetent people are there, wasting our time and our taxes?
AND, we have entrusted the oversight of our entire health care system to this entity (IRS) that cannot even manage to get the taxes administered correctly. Anyone else scared?
