SOPA/PIPA would cost taxpayers $45 million a year to protect billionaires
Just a quick post from the “It’s only a recession if you work for a living” department.
SOPA/PIPA would cost US federal taxpayers $45 million dollars a year to enforce.
“Still, Coburn has his concerns with the approach taken in the Senate bill. And he insists, as he does with all legislation, that its costs be offset with cuts elsewhere in the budget; the Senate bill, he said, carries an estimated $45 million in federal enforcement costs. “
It is “interesting” when the resounding answer to everything else is “it’s not in the budget”, that they come up with $450 million in deficit spending over the next 10 years to protect the rich business criminals at the MAFIAA and Fixed News.
Oh well, the lobbyists bribed a pack of corrupt politicians to pass the damned thing. I guess anything is in the budget when corporate lobbyists have worked enough dirty money into the United States Congress.
As corporate welfare goes, SOPA/PIPA is hardly the costliest legislation in recent history, but that’s no excuse for fleecing taxpayers who work for a living to protect billionaires.
Besides, some people like Fox Noise.
PS: Just for fun. If you gave the budget to enforce SOPA for 10 years to NASA, they could do another Mars mission, complete with two more rovers. Hey, it beats giving scum sucking corporate bitch turned Senator turned scum sucking corporate bitch Chris Dodd a handout. Doesn’t it?
