Well, at least for her it was voluntary.

She at least has the courage of her convictions. When I debate the statists who cry about how low taxes are, I always ask them if they donate to the US Treasury the excess of their income after paying for their current expenses. They either ignore me, or accuse me of trying to be a free rider, but it appears that none have ever actually donated.

Too bad that the Fed will make a mockery of this selfless initiative by simply printing all the fiat dollars they want. Sad. Sad.

It’s true that any whining liberal can give the government some extra money by simply tearing up their tax refund check. But nobody ever does it. There’s always some wealthier person who should be taxed more.

I see a big future in this. Give us money so we don’t have to steal it from someone else!!!

But why stop stealing it when you you can have both idiots and victims giving you money?

Anyway the government will just figure that this mil is debt service so they can issue another 1.1mil/0.5 or 22 mil of bonds.

In other news…

“Extra US$1.1 million dollar donation to IRS requires an additional 140 agents to process, creating US$4.5 million dollar budget shortfall.”

News at 11.

And this will pay off what, about 0.00000001% of the national debt?

What a waste of money…

How much better if the money was given to the Mises Institute to train students and publish books.
