Just got back from a family thing over in AZ (got the jump on the time change that way).
Anyways, the IRS is about to waste $42,000,000 of your and my money. How? By sending everybody that's going to get a check from the stimulus package a mailer telling them that they will get the check. The Democrats are complaing that that is waste of money. They are right.
This apparently is the IRS version of a Dilbert Cartoon. In the next panel Dilbert will suggest to the IRS that maybe we can't just jump into a mailer to explain the check and need to send a pre-mailer to tell them they'll get a mailer.
Seriously, I can understand including a flyer with the checks that explains how the amount of the check was determined. But a separate mailing? Stupid, stupid, stupid.
