Not exact same subject but related to money.
Jailed prisoners in the USA filed more than 173,000 fraudulent tax returns with the IRS in 2012. They were claiming $1.1 billion in rebates from behind bars. Fraud detected by the IRS blocked some 2 billion in fraudulent refunds.
Amazing what ya hear on Brit radio. One of these days I may figure a way to record the BeeB so I can share. I wake up in the middle of the night and sometimes turn on bedside radio.
Some stuff boring enough to put me back to sleep but some gets quite interesting and I stay with it. Which really keeps me up.
See Kids, this is what happens when you smoke to much Mary Jane, you forget shit.
It’s not forgetting - he does this on purpose. When he was a lowly Senator (153 days) he voted for every Dem spending idea that came along but when the Republicans wanted something, he stood up and denounced it. Looks good to run crap like that to your low information voters who might actually believe that you are for lower spending.
But underneath it all you expand Lifeline (1985) - originally to help elderly have a landline - has expanded to anyone on certain government programs to get cell phones and minutes. Not I’m sure what the original law writers had intended (unless they were Dems, which was simply their toe in the door to kick wide open a decade or two later).
Now we’re irresponsible to NOT want to continue to borrow money to ‘pay our bills’ - Who the f*#@ lives like that in America? Really come on - that isn’t the American way.
Let’s start by cutting:
-Funds to Chinese prostitutes to not drink when on the ‘job’
-Funds to Palestine, Egypt and a host of other terrorist sponsoring nations
-Cut funds to every foreign nation (not stop totally, just cut the percentage)
-Funding to the UN and their free-for-all building/life in NYC
-Funds to run guns and pay off FFLs forced to sell to unqualified gun runners (Fast and Furious debacle)
-Funding to the EPA, DOE, HHS since they have all failed in their mission
-Funding to the Obamaphones
-Funding for the stealth change of welfare/food stamps from payment coupons to EPT (whatever) cards - so that the po’ can’t ATM out cash at casinos and strip clubs
-Funding to any/all social service entities who provide benefits and services to Criminal Illegal Invaders
And that’s just a start - but it will cut billions from our ‘bills’
