Nobody messes with Joe? What exactly is Biden doing?

I thought Biden was going to oversee for fraud and waste in the Stimulus?

J. Russell George, Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, questioned the eligibility of some 100,000 claims out of the 1.5 million who have sought to take advantage of the $8,000 tax credit incorporated in the economic stimulus package enacted last February.

He said claimants include those who could possibly be illegal immigrants and that 580 people seeking $4 million from the first-time home buyer credit were under the age of 18. The youngest taxpayers receiving the credit were 4 years old, his office said.
The top Republican on the panel, Rep. Charles Boustany, Jr., of Louisiana, said that while the issue of extending the credit was not the purpose of the hearing, “every time Congress creates a new refundable credit … the incentive for fraud is magnified.”

  • Do you think the government should do MORE to avoid and oversee programs to reduce waste/fraud? Apparently Joe Biden isn't enough..lol

  • Apparently Biden isn't doing his job, but according to Sweet, it Bush's fault. Oh wait, Bush isn't president anymore.

    Whether you think Cheney was lousy or not, THIS LANDS IN BIDEN'S LAP, and has nothing to do with the previous administration.
