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!

Sounds good but the only problem is that Con-Gress would have to pass it upon themselves and you know that ain't happening...
