The Speed Of Government

by Brad Warbiany

I’ve found something that the government does quickly. When you owe them taxes at this time of the year, they don’t waste time. I owed at the end of this year, and there was maybe a 3-4 day from the time we SENT the check and the day it cleared. That check cleared faster than giving it to a crackhead with a gambling problem…

…which is a lot like government, when you really think about it!

    I noted the same phenomenon in a letter to the editor last year.

    In June, the state house passed two laws: a tax increase on tobacco and a tax break on groceries. The tobacco tax took effect two weeks later. The grocery tax reduction? Six months.

    The funny thing is when you file eletronically early in the season (like mid-February) and for some reason screwed up your math and are owed a refund, it can take weeks for that money to appear in your account.
