Circus Economics

Did you get your IRS notice recently? What a comedy!

My stimulus payment? What will it stimulate me to do? 600 dollars? What’s that, like 20 Euros? I think I’ll buy some eggs.

My favorite line of the notice:
“For taxpayers with adjusted gross income (AGI) of more than $75,000 (or more than $150,000 if married filing jointly), the payment will be reduced or phased out completely.”

Is that vague or what? “Or phased out completely?” As if this has been a long term thing and now they are putting an end to it?

I cannot believe George W. went to Yale. I could not even imagine him getting through clown college.

I would love to see someone do a dramatic reading/one-person show of this document. Just putting it out there.

I think you all know what I am going to spend my $600 on. And you are all invited.

I'm trying to think of the most eloquent way to express my disgust. Perhaps signing the check over to the Obama (or Clinton) campaign?
