Because nothing says government overreach like the U.S government knowing that your great aunt Clara just bought a furniture set for $601. As many of you know, the American government is arguing for its “right” to snoop on the bank accounts of ordinary citizens who have or will have at any time more than $600 in the account. Government officials including Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen argue that the bill and the threshold is necessary to fight billionaires.
Now here’s the problem with that. With the threshold so low of course ordinary Americans and their accounts will get swooped up in the so-called “Operation Billionaires” (not actually what they’re calling it but we’re going to go with that.)
That’s where the problem sits.
This lady certainly receives the first donkey of the day.
