Removing 10 Year Statute Of Limitations

From today's Federal Register:
We are amending our Tax Refund Offset (TRO) and Administrative Offset regulations. We are conforming our regulations to those of the Department of the Treasury (Treasury) for the following reasons: Treasury removed the 10-year limitation to collect delinquent debts owed the United States by reducing eligible Federal payments, and more States are participating in reciprocal agreements with Treasury to offset State payments, including tax refunds to reduce or extinguish a federally owed debt. These changes will allow us to collect additional Federal debt.
A ten year statute of limitations is not long enough?

They'd do better to rework the ridiculous overpayment waiver rules. That mess makes recouping incorrect payments nearly impossible.
