Your tax dollars at work

Если решение раздавать дебитные карточки пострадавшим от Катрины кому-то не сразу показалось идиотским, вот несколько фактов: The Government Accountability Office said that of the 2.5 million emergency relief debit cards that were issued, 900,000 went to people with phony addresses or with fake or duplicate Social Security numbers. ... Those figures are peanuts compared with the nearly $1 billion FEMA squandered on 24,000 mobile homes, said the Homeland Security Department's inspector general. Only 1,200 of those trailers were used, Richard Skinner said. .45 caliber pistol at Elliot's Gun Shop - $1300 Visit to a gentlemen's club D Houston - $1200 Not spending a penny of your own money - priceless. Some things money can't buy. For everything else there's emergency relief debit card. Пора оформлять налоги... Приятно сознавать что ~40% моих доходов идёт на полезные вещи.
