This story and some offered by respondent's shows the absulutely loss of common scense by Goverment and the Main Stream Fascist press in this country. We have to throw politicians out of office who hire ignorant employees like these in this story. Replace them with real people that are not void of common scense,.

As a public finance economist, I normally focus on big-picture arguments against excessive government.

If the public sector is too large, for instance, that undermines economic growth by diverting resources from the productive sector of the economy.

The damage is then compounded by a needlessly destructive and punitive tax system.

But I’ve also discovered that it helps to personalize the analysis by pointing out examples of ridiculous and wasteful behavior by government.
