Vince Vitrano: Not For Broadcast

HERE'S A LETTER TO TELL YOU TO...

...READ YOUR MAIL

  • Print

Everyone I've asked about this has had the exact same reaction, "really?"

Did you get your letter in the mail from the U.S. Census Bureau? Your tax dollars at work. Let's conceive of, print, and mail tens of millions of letters... essentially telling people... we're going to mail you some more stuff.

I opened the letter from the U.S. Department of Commerce thinking it was the Census questionnaire. Instead, it was this waste of a tree letter, telling me what I already know. The Census questionnaire is coming.

I know, because they're already spending our tax dollars on commercials and events (featuring free food) encouraging people to do what all decent citizens ought to be planning to do anyway... fill the thing out and mail it back.

I remember hearing something on the news about us being strapped for cash these days. Waste! Waste! Waste!

Please don't misread this. I'm not making any political argument here. Democrats and republicans alike are guilty of promoting and failing to rein in bloated bureaucracy.

Don't ever, ever, ever let a politician tell you there's nowhere left to cut.
