    The vote is not recorded... hence a voice vote. Plausible deniability.

    Doesn't change anything about the voice vote. Why are House Republicans not wanting to go on record cutting the IRS budget....

    voice votes are not about hiding, they are about taking votes on legislation quickly and moving on.

    Democrat can call for a recorded vote at any time.... they have plenty of votes to be successful ( 1/5 of the house is needed to call for a recorded vote)

    why didn't they call for a recorded vote?


    the GOP is on record as easily passing the voice votes... if one is so inclined, they can punish the GOP for picking on the IRS by voting for someone else... but i don't think it's a political liability to pick on the IRS.... hell, nobody but far lefties has any love for the IRS,

    I will give you that Serrano should have pushed for a recorded vote. But at the same time a recorded vote makes for a record, and that might not be so nice being in campaign season... I would think House GOPers would love a defund the IRS bill in their voting record. Come on we are talking about the same folks who shut down the government and were proud of it.

    Imagine if Democrats were voting to cut border patrol enforcement.

    I don't know.

    It would, at the very least, force them to operate more efficiently, which every government agency out there needs to do. Maybe we ought to gut the entire operating budget of the U.S. government by 15% and see how much money we save.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    besides corruptions needs to be eliminated by working within the system.
    As we've already seen, the only people who can change the system are the people who are within the system and benefit from keeping things the way they are. That's how we, the American people, have allowed many things to become. Only lawyers can change the law, particularly how the legal profession operates. Only politicians can change the political system. They have no impetus to reduce the amount of power and money that they control and Americans keep voting them back into office.

    But that's only because there are more Americans today than ever before. That means there are more Americans requiring social services that require more money to fund. The percentage is more important than the actual numbers.
