When we talk about government waste………..

We are talking about things like this.

The Internal Revenue Service says it will need a battalion of 1,054 new auditors and staffers and new facilities at a cost to taxpayers of more than $359 million in fiscal 2012 just to watch over the initial implementation of President Obama’s healthcare reforms. Among the new corps will be 81 workers assigned to make sure tanning salons pay a new 10 percent excise tax. Their cost: $11.5 million.

Why, or maybe I should ask HOW can it cost THAT much, $ 359 MILLION  for 1054 new employees? Seriously? By the way, I know that the Stalinist feel of this is a bigger deal in the big picture, but I wanted to illustrate the fiscal ineptitude of anything Washington tries to do.
