The GOP's Campaign to Make You Hate The IRS Is Kind of Genius | Mother Jones

The GOP's Campaign to Make You Hate The IRS Is Kind of Genius

Quote:
But people have even more reason to despise encounters with the agency these days, thanks to a concerted effort by Republicans in Congress to slash the tax collector's budget. From the front page of today's Washington Post:

Since 2010, Republicans on Capitol Hill have slashed the IRS budget by $1.2 billion, or about 17 percent, adjusting for inflation. Just this fiscal year, $346 million was cut.
ADVERTISEMENT

By contrast, cuts across the rest of the government have been far more modest and concentrated. Between 2012 and 2014, automatic spending reductions shrank non-defense spending, as adjusted for inflation, by 1.3 percent, while IRS spending was chopped 5.6 percent, according to Scott Lilly, a budget expert at the Center for American Progress.

Those budget cuts have made dealing with the IRS this tax season a true pain in the ass. As the Washington Post details, just four in ten callers to the IRS's help line are actually able to get assistance from a real human, while the number of unintentional hang-ups from an overworked phone system have ballooned. And the cuts are actually costing the government: thanks to a 5,000-person reduction in the agency's staff over the past four years, tax cheats can more easily skate by.

Attacking the IRS is one of the simplest lines a politician can roll out. It's a favorite rhetorical turn for presidential candidate and senator Ted Cruz, who's said he'd like to "abolish the IRS, take all 125,000 IRS agents and put them on our southern border," to applause at this year's CPAC.
No IRS, the rich can do what they want....and they have a ready group of knee jerking emotional Pavlov dogs to cheer them on.

Depending on when a person goes to prison, they very well might have a refund coming on income earned before their confinement. This article complains that the IRS doesn't monitor it close enough. If you don't like that, then you should write your Republican representative and tell him that you wish for the Republicans to reverse the massive funding cuts that they imposed on the IRS for political reasons.

Stop it. You're killing me.

Bingo. Of course Roast Pork doesn't realize how much the Republicans have cut IRS funding. At least we are here to Defend The Truth.

This collective humiliation won't stop Roast Pork from sourcing Newsmax in the future.

Like cutting security funding for Benghazi and then trying to use the death of 4 Americans as a political tool against Hillary. These republicans will drink ANY ol' kool aide the right wingers sell them. Must be nice to have a bunch of ol uneducated right wing fundamentalists at your beck and call; carrying your bucket of lies for you.

Context is lost on you Mr. Pork. Newsmax is depending on your ignorance. Here's what your "trustworthy" Newsmax conveniently left out;

House Republicans propose $838 million cut to IRS

House Republicans want to cut $838 million from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) for fiscal 2016, which begins Oct. 1.

The reduction would be more than double the $350 million Congress cut from the agency’s budget for 2015.
