In today’s mail I got my letter from the IRS about me and my wife having received our money.
I already knew that we had received our money since it was by direct deposit. So why did I need a letter telling us that we will soon or have already received the money?
The letter was sent first class mail so I guess that might cost as a bulk rate a penny a letter. Given the number of taxpayers being in the vicinity of 143.3 million (2018), that would equate to a taxpayer expense of $1,430,000. I did not figure in those who received money but pay no taxes. Railroad retirees and other exempt groups.
So ... why did this letter go out? It went out because it is signed by Donald John Trump.
What a shameful political ploy to use our tax dollars to claim credit for what the Congress did — not him! Had he even attempted to veto the bill, he would have been shot down in flames by his own party as well as the Democrats.
Time for Trump supporters to look carefully at what this man has done, or more importantly, what this man has undone and how his actions have helped the country.
More dead in six weeks than 10 years of war in Vietnam. The virus is not his fault but his inactions and denials from the very start sure did not assist in lowering the death rate.
Time to go, Mr. Trump.
I tried to buy some Lysol today at Walmart and the shelves were cleaned out. I wonder why?
