JUST A THOUGHT
It has become a regular habit for the idiots in Congress to wait until literally the very last minute each year, after the IRS has gone to press with forms and instructions, to pass a temporary extension of a temporary tax break or benefit.
When they do this the IRS must incur additional costs to reprint forms, tables, and instructions to reflect the last minute extensions. And I expect other federal agencies also incur additional expenses. This adds to the annual, and accumulated, budget deficit.
I propose that the total amount of these additional costs, a direct result of the idiots in Congress not doing their job properly, be added up and subtracted from the compensation paid to these idiots.
Maybe if the fools take a personal hit in the pocketbook they will decide to act more responsibly!
