Now, the half of America who pays income taxes (does that mean we're finally paying our "fair share?") has watched a half-billion of its precious dollars go "poof" in an uncoordinated partisan flurry of activity to finally produce some of those so-called "green jobs" in time to create some positivity in advance of the 2012 general election.
So, I'd like to know if I can recoup some of that loss by declaring it on my taxes. Or, as one of the ever-diminishing cadre of those who are actually pulling the wagon so that others can ride, do I not deserve even this small consideration? Or has half-a-billion dollars become such chump change that it becomes a rounding error?
Loose change Obama could find between the cushions of his Oval Office couch, perhaps?
Pardon me, but I'm growing a bit weary of this whole costly charade. How about you?
