The More Desperate They Get, The More Money They’ll Try to Steal

Social Security, Treasury target taxpayers for their parents’ decades-old debts – The Washington Post

The Treasury Department has intercepted $1.9 billion in tax refunds already this year — $75 million of that on debts delinquent for more than 10 years, said Jeffrey Schramek, assistant commissioner of the department’s debt management service. The aggressive effort to collect old debts started three years ago — the result of a single sentence tucked into the farm bill lifting the 10-year statute of limitations on old debts to Uncle Sam.

Well, you know, this poor Black woman probably voted for the party that did this to her.  The farm bill in question was passed by a Democrat House and Senate (with, admittedly, some GOP help), but was vetoed by President Bush.  His veto was then overturned in both House and Senate, again with significant GOP assistance – not many Republicans voted for it, but enough did to reach the necessary level to overcome the veto.

It was, however, a Democrat show from start to finish.

I hope she’s enjoying what her party did to her, good and hard.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
