Our Government At Work

This one is always going to give me a smile.  Says here in my news magazine that the Inspector General recently discovered that from 2008 to 2013, in attempting to get back 128 million dollars in overpayments, the Social Security Administration spent 323 million dollars, but only recouped 109 million of the dollars they sent out by mistake. 
This means they had a net loss of 214 million simoleons.  Most of it was what you can call "throwing good money after bad."
Normally I hate math, but this equation is delicious.
