The Ticket Refunds
...Maybe reading THIS will help you to understand how TAX refunds work.
Five thousand people go to a baseball game, but the game was rained out, therefore a refund was due.
The team was about to mail out the refunds when a group of congressional Liberals called and complained that they should really be sending out the ticket refunds based on the Democrat National Committee's interpretation of 'fairness'.
Originally, of course, the refunds were to be paid based on the price each person had paid for the tickets. Unfortunately that meant most of the refund money would be going to the ticket holders who had purchased the most expensive tickets. That, according to the liberal ideal, is considered totally unfair, so a decision was made to pay out the refunds as follows:
1. All people in the $10 seats will get back $15....NOW do you understand?
...If not, please just contact Rep. Nancy Pelosi, Sen. Teddy Kennedy, Sen. John Kerry or Sen. Hillary Clinton. I am SURE they will be happy to explain the 'fairness' of all this to you.
