So the House is trying to cut the budget of the IRS to TEACH THEM A LESSON!!!!!!\
Basically, this backs out the one-time spending approved last year to fight identity theft and continues a hard budget freeze at the agency.
Arf, Arf, Arf, honk, honk, honk, whap, whap, whap.
There. I’ve arfed, honked and slapped my fins together, now let’s see what it means.
Keeping spending at this level means that the IRS will have to prioritize their resources away from things like Obamacare implementation and harassing ordinary families and small businesses. The IRS will still have plenty of money to go after actual criminals and tax cheats, but hopefully not enough money for fishing expeditions elsewhere.
Yeah…no. This means they’ll divert money away from stuff like answering the phones or emailed questions in a timely manner or going after connected tax cheats and criminals and toward lavish travel expenditures and investigating conservatives.
Who’s gonna stop them? The “Justice” Dept? Congress? Courts? Sir Lancelot?
But wait!!!!! There’s still more!!!!!!
There are also several important policy riders attached to this bill which will help constrain the IRS from any more Lois Lerner-type inappropriate political activities. These include:
Prohibiting the IRS from finalizing regulations regarding the tax-exempt status of 501(c)(4) groups. The fear here is that these rules will be used to unfairly target conservative non-profits
Prohibiting bonuses and awards to IRS employees unless conduct and tax compliance is given consideration
Prohibiting the IRS from targeting organizations for their political beliefs and citizens for exercising their First Amendment rights
Prohibiting funds for inappropriate videos and conferences (anyone remember the Star Trek video?)
Prohibiting the White House (Bwa-haahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahhahahah snort……hahahahahahahahaha hahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha V) from directing an IRS investigation of an organization
Prohibiting the transfer of funds to the IRS for Obamacare implementation
Prohibiting funds to implement Obamacare’s individual mandate
Prohibiting the IRS from auditing a church
Arf arf arf!!!!!!!!! Honk honk honk!!!!!! Whap whap whap!!!!!!!!!!!
Who’s gonna enforce that? The “Justice” Dept? Captain America? Tsar Putin I? Janet Reno?
Now, impeaching Koskinen and charging people like Lerner in contempt of Congress to get the trials on C-Span would be a start while this idiocy accuses me of being stupid.
They’re closer to finding me in contempt of Congress than Lerner.
And deservedly so.

It was Atlanta not Baltimore where the first Mostly Peaceful Protestor decided to copy the murderous asshole(*s) in Dallas.
*I do not believe the police when they, now, say there was only one shooter.
