Two observations. First, I find it incredibly ironic that members of Congress would complain about the wasting of taxpayer dollars. Wasting money is their sole purpose for existing.
Second, the following video does give us a rather candid glimpse into the bureaucratic mind. The video description pretty much sums it up:
The US Internal Revenue Service spent $60,000+ of your money to produce this terrible Star Trek spoof. Despite being really bad, the film does demonstrate the culture of government: You, the citizens, are tax cattle to be farmed for the state. Without genius central planners civilization itself would fall.So, sit back, relax, and enjoy $1.5 million worth of IRS training.
