I.R.S. to Cut Tax Auditors – New York Times: “The federal government is moving to eliminate the jobs of nearly half of the lawyers at the Internal Revenue Service who audit tax returns of some of the wealthiest Americans, specifically those who are subject to gift and estate taxes when they transfer parts of their fortunes to their children and others.
The administration plans to cut the jobs of 157 of the agency’s 345 estate tax lawyers, plus 17 support personnel, in less than 70 days. Kevin Brown, an I.R.S. deputy commissioner, confirmed the cuts after The New York Times was given internal documents by people inside the I.R.S. who oppose them.”
So if you can’t get the law changed we’ll just fire all of the cops and DA’s. Must be nice to be the ruler in a two-bit country. What’s the matter George, can’t find that many incompetents to replace the actual lawyers with? If someone disagrees we’ll just arrest them and not have any harassment from those old traitors who don’t toe the GOP line…And there sits our Congress, on their asses in DC and without the integrity to even stand up for their jobs.
