According to Senator Daniel Coats(R-IN):

We also learned the IRS ignores notifications from the Social Security Administration that a name does not match a Social Security number, and you use your own system to determine whether a number is valid.”

Scene from the People’s Republic of San Francisco, “Bay Area Man Forced Out Of His $400/month enclosed bed” . I have to wonder what triggered the city fathers to come down on this gentleman. Was his landlord insufficiently connected ?, Did he get too much press coverage ?, Was his bed to plain ? Would something like this bed have passed muster ?
