I.R.S. Loses 5.5 Billion, Oddly Enough, So Does the Post Office

I find it incredible that people have the cojones to defraud the I.R.S. by filing phony tax returns. Who the hell investigates that? Local cops? Or does the I.R.S. just blow it off?

The I.R.S. lost 5.5 billion last year. Hardly chump change. http://news.yahoo.com/irs-missing-billions-id-theft-164707999.html

Oddly enough, the United States Post Office on Wednesday- defaulted for the first time ever- on the exact same amount in the form of a retirement payment. http://blogs.voanews.com/breaking-news/2012/08/01/us-post-office-faces-first-ever-default-on-a-payment/

Eleven billion bucks. This is starting to add up. Pretty soon we will be talking about serious money.
