It always amazes me how our govt - Federal, State, local, can take a simple idea like electronic file keeping and through cornyism, graft, corruption and just plain stupidity, turn it into something worse then the original problems, with a massive price tag for the income tax payers to subsidize, while the insiders line their pockets.
Nothing these people ever do, ever save money or time. It just increases their empire and cost massive amounts of money. While they declare success.
I believe it was Newt, that 1st thought electronic files would save money and time. But like the USPS, once the govt gets involved, the main concern becomes how to siphon of tax money to themself and friends and lobbyists.
