    House GOP votes to gut IRS budget

    And the Leftists claim that the GOP doesn't do anything! They did something and I think it's great. I think this is what the folks who represent the people are supposed to do.

    Late Tuesday night, the House of Representatives voted to cut 13 percent from the Internal Revenue Service’s budget. Two proposals submitted by Republican legislators in the House were quickly passed by voice vote, resulting in a cut of $1.14 billion from the tax collection agency’s enforcement budget.

    “The changes would leave the IRS with a budget of $9.8 billion for the fiscal year that starts Oct. 1, 13 percent below this year’s funding level and 21 percent below the administration’s request,” Bloomberg News reported on Wednesday.

    Not good to piss off the person with the checkbook.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    What about the country's corruption troubles? I think that takes priority over anything else.

    Are you serious? The IRS is obviously too corrupt to wield the power that it does.

    I'm with you on this one - I'd like to see the government numbers on estimates of taxes not paid or in default.

    I love how it was a voice vote, in other words no record for when campaign season is in full swing. Just reinforced the "phony scandal" bit.

    True, but that's neither here, nor there.

    The head honcho of the IRS is a part of the corruption!
