    OK, arrest and charge some IT guy. Or do you just fire 10-20% of the workforce, hope one of them is an IT guy with all the inside information and that after he gets fired, he'll come forward to Issa and spill the beans to get his job back? Why, that's BRILLIANT!

    Well, that's precisely what this is, working within the system.

    I'm not sure what your point was. IT people are 'little' people, and..... what? How does that observation relate to a proposal to cut the IRS budget, and lay off a few thousand workers?

    Hurt them all. They are un-American. Do the same for the EPA. Cut their budget by 90% and follow their own advice about grabbing the first five you see in your town and crucify them. Nail them to a nearby tree. It will make the rest easier to manage.

    Flat tax. We do not need the IRS. Get rid of them.

    Re: House GOP votes to gut IRS budget

    how quickly people forget the money the IRS wastes on such things as "star trek" videos... dance lessons..spending millions on software they never used... spending million on employee conferences

    but anyways... spending cuts won't fly.... Harry Reid will kill it or Obama will....
    my money is on Harry Reid... he won't allow anything form the House to even come to a vote, let alone pass it on to Obama to veto.

    Do not fund anything the Left desires.
    Do not allow any further continuing resolutions.
    Close down this illegal government.

    Uh, no. Wrong answer!

    Flat tax is still a tax, still have to determine income, still have deductions, credits, etc. A flat tax just eliminates lots of deductions little people take, and makes their returns slightly easier, and maybe instead of 5 rates there is one or two, but simple returns are already checked by computer and a computer can check 12 or 40 lines as easily as 3. Tax returns for businesses or the wealthy don't get much easier, if at all. And no matter what kind of tax, people will cheat, not file, etc. and you'll need the IRS to catch them, and collect their taxes, send a few of them to jail, etc.

    I suspected the right wing had decided that if a "leftist" was for something, they'd be against it just because, but haven't ever actually seen anyone ADMIT being that irrational.

    And democrats are HOPING the GOP shuts down government, right before the election. So I'm with you - shut it down, shut off the Medicare checks, shut off the SS checks, shut down the airports, and the courts, and the parks, etc. Obviously cut off checks to the soldiers, park the planes and ships in hangars and docks. Shut the whole thing down!
