    Deficit spending is the amount by which spending exceeds revenue over a particular period of time, also called simply deficit, or budget deficit; the opposite of budget surplus.
    I'm sorry my friend; there's only one way to stop deficit spending.

    Yeah, I do taxes for a living. I call them all the time. Not interested in waiting longer to get a live person, for my letters to be addressed, etc. That was my point. It will hurt everyone but who you want to hurt. Do you think cutting the budget makes that wait time shorter, with 1,000 fewer employees?

    Folks will start talking about anything and everything they know about. As long as everyone feels untouchable, no one's going to say anything.

    besides corruptions needs to be eliminated by working within the system.
    When “the system” itself becomes as corrupt as it very obviously, has, it cannot be fixed by working within it.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Service at the IRS can't suck any more than it already does. Besides, the enforcement budget is being cut. If service suffers because of that, then something is seriously wrong at the IRS...as if we there already isn't.

    So 10,000 fewer employees will help service. GOPer thinking at its finest. Starve it of funds then whine when there is a long wait because thousands of people to answer the phones and deal with your notice got laid off.

    None of your rhetoric even addresses the fact it WON'T STOP CORRUPTION. The only thing it will do is hurt the little workers while bogging down legitimate buisness which will open up for even MORE corruption. I'm ALL for stopping corruption, but this isn't going to do it. THAT'S why I am against it.

    Just because I don't agree with ONE plan doesn't mean I am FOR corruption.

    So you are going to vote third party then right? Because the Dems AND the GOP have become too corrupt.

    It's the "little" people that have the inside knowledge to bring this all out. IT Admins are little people too.
