Treasury Department Federal Government Incompetence Shutdown

Weekly Standard

The government shutdown may have ended last October, but the Treasury Department’s voicemail is telling callers a different story. 

After callers wait a minute to hear all of the prompts, callers hear this:

‘Due to the lapse in appropriations, the Treasury Department is currently closed. Once the appropriations have been restored, the Treasury Department will reopen for business as usual. Thank you.’

How much is that illusion costing taxpayers?  Moreover, what more proof do we need to realize that government is just too big for its own good and that of every American?
