Your Tax Dollars (Not) At Work

The country is at war (it must be; the President says so on a daily basis and Cassius is an honorable man), we face record deficits (mostly due to ill-considered tax cuts for the mega-wealthy, but put that aside for now) and it turns out that oil companies owe billions of dollars for drilling on public (i.e., our) land. And what is the Interior Department's response? Eh, blow it off. Not surprisingly, this seems to have been the result of political pressure from the White House. Even House Republicans (a normally complacent lot of presidential sock puppets) are having a hard time swallowing the logic here.
