After spending ten years and over $1 billion of taxpayer funds to put its 95 immigration forms online, the Department of Homeland Security has reportedly succeeded in digitizing just one form.
At that rate, the agency will finish the job in the year 2955 at a cost of an additional $94 billion.
The Washington Post broke the story, and its writer, Jerry Markon tweeted:

This was one of the most jeer-worthy examples of government waste, and folks took to social media to do just that — jeer.
@JerryMarkon And people still want the Government to be in control of our Healthcare System, pffft. #tcot #PJNET — Let Freedom Ring (@FreedomRingz76) November 9, 2015
@JerryMarkon I could have done the job for only $900 million, and all 95 would have been online 9 years ago. #CallMe

Whose college roommate got that contract? @JerryMarkon — GlobSnark (@GlobSnark) November 9, 2015
NBC Capitol Hill correspondent Luke Russert made this observation, which kept the ball rolling:
Another lacking contract coupled with inept government “pass the buck” mentality. https://t.co/TTcBHn0dXJ
