  •  What a moocher! (7+ / 0-)

    I know this wasn't a scam, but an actual benefit lawfully
    on the books.  (Apparently in 20120 Congress was pretty sure that a Repub would be the one to use it. How's that workin' out for ya?)

    And how is this different from other categories of gov't "entitlement"?

    The difference is that it was available to Rmoney, not one of the rest of us. If the 1% take advantage of gov't benefits, well, that's just fine.

    But for someone who paid into SS or Medicare over their entire working lives, to expect a benefit - well that just makes us moochers.

    Has he filed an amendment on his 2011 tax return to get that whopping charitable deduction back yet?

    Maybe if he pays the GAO back he can report the cost of the aborted transition on his 2012 taxes and get some (more) $$ back.
