Except this was a mistake made by the GPO, the Government Publishing Office. There is no evidence of their party affiliation. Most likely holdover from the Trump administration.


Sigh

The IRS is required to audit a President each year. That has been their self-imposed regulation since 1977, and neither party has taken issue with it until now. Then again, we've never had a president with so much (to hide) until Trump.

Just a note. He flat out lied dozens of times. Claiming he was under audit.

'He' being Trump? It's a believable lie though. Everybody hates the IRS. And we would hope they'd have audited someone at that tax bracket. It would also be hard to disprove. And even if it was disproven, Trump could easily say he was told by one of his nameless people that he was.

Not exactly. I just dont like the idea that a single member od the House can derail budget negotiations at the last minute. It's bad enough that they cant get the budget done on time when a songle party runs both the House and Senate.

WAKE UP

There are no budget negotiations

We haven't had a budget since around 2008

Wow. That's like 15 years of free gubmint.

Nah. There is a budget every year. Mandated by the Constitution. We spend lots of money. It's an insane number that is just out there. Trillions? Idk. It's a lot. Do we get mad at the total number? Or mad about any of it wasted?

Iconsider myself to be fiscally conservative. We shouldn't spend more than we take in. Now, we can discuss how to bring in more, or ways to spend less. We should. Congress should. But reality kicks in and there has to be a budget or the government shuts down, and we have to have a budget that gets approved by both houses of Congress, then gets signed by the President.

So reality. Dems have the White House and the Senate. GOP has the House. At best, I think the budget can be reigned in at last year's level, with some monetary priorities shifting. I don't think a balanced budget is possible in this political environment. And if that is the goal of even one GOP House member, we're screwed.

No real connection there, MJ. The dates are too far off.

Somehow I doubt Boebert's bill will pass even the House. But the agency doesn't need to be politicized. Everybody hates them equally.

They are absolutely connected and directly related. The IIRS remains short staffed TODAY.

A VERY REAL CONNECTION

https://tax.thomsonreuters.com/news/2023-tax-outlook-pt-2-a-critical-year-for-the-irs/

quote:


National Taxpayer Advocate Erin Collins stressed in her 2022 Objectives Report to Congress that workforce instability has been ongoing. “The size of the IRS workforce has declined significantly since FY 2010,” wrote Collins. “During this decline, the IRS has been unable to keep pace with its projected hiring, causing positions that help carry out its crucial mission of tax administration to go unfilled.” She added that each year, about 5,600 IRS employees leave for the private sector or another job.

“If the IRS does not make significant changes, these staffing shortages will compound and pose significant threats to the U.S. Treasury and indirectly harm taxpayer services and voluntary compliance,” said Collins.

Businesses of all sorts have been complaining of a worker shortage. The IRS is no different. But Boebert's bill, introduced in 2023, has no impact on worker shortages in 2022, aside from the continuous and unnecessary politicization of the agency.

Of course, I never said Boebert actually looked at the agency's books at all, before 'writing' her bill. Or that it was anything more than an attempt to OWN THE LIBS. Or that it made any sense at all.

<face palm>

True. But completely irrelevant.

It has a huge impact on IRS staff shortages in 2023, which have been going on since before 2022.

Also equally as irrelevant to my post is whether or not it passes the House or the Senate.

The only thing relevant is owning the libs. If the Communist Democrats want it, it must be bad. Cuz freedom!!!!!

Meanwhile, Dems want a functional government. Healthcare. Education. Housing. Civil rights.

Just a couple notes...

1. Bobert is celebrating it. It is not her bill.
2. It has already passed the House.

Does Janet Yellen ever show up with good news? We have only a few hours left to raise the debt ceiling now, as we are estimated to hit it today. Even though Congress passed funding for stuff already.

So I'm betting the IRS gets sacrificed in order to get a deal. Dems may get half of what they wanted. May get no more than we have now. The budget may freeze spending at 2022 levels. Or it may actually get cut.

Either way, this is gonna suck.

Edited to add: I was uncertain, so I had write in quotations. And honestly, I didn't care enough to read the article again.
And I'm not surprised that a conservative bill was passed by a conservative majority. We may actually see more of that in this term.
