I got this interesting little tidbit in my email today:
As it happens, yes, I did know that most of the Bailout Bill won’t be spent immediately, despite the rhetoric that it “must be passed now or the economy crashes!!!” that the media shoveled into our feeding trough. It just strikes me as interesting that a company making money off of a Byzantine tax code would effectively admit that the Bailout was effectively sold under false pretenses (that is, if you’re paying attention). No, H&R isn’t part of the gommint, but I suspect that they waited until after the bill passed to send this particular promotion out. Can’t let the lemming consumers learn the reality of the Bailout after all, not when they can still complain to their congresscritters.
