I'll second that request Hoosierguy....
I guess Koskinen wants to paint the image of thousands of nerdy types slaving over tax returns, piled high on their desk, in and effort to make sure their boss isn't going to sign a return check for to much, Hope this guy never takes up writing fiction for a living.The entire process has been taken over with technology that put most of those number cruncher's out of a job. The IRS needs to be audited every year before they can submit their request for next years budget. The money spent for a private out side firm to do this could be paid for in the money we would be saved by cutting the budget of the IRS. Same goes for the FED...
Word games. When does the movie come out? Bottom line no matter what you label it they are orders coming from the Oval Office and they all mean the same thing at the end of the day, namely Americans are getting screwed.
If there was regular audits done on this as well as other agencies sucking off the teats of the taxpayers we woulds probably find enough abuse and improper spending the those responsible high and fast. I do believe that just about every American has come to realize the IRS operation is at lease ninety percent automated. Except for the occasional extraction of someones account for personal harassment, human hands never touch that filing or the check processed for return.

People like Dr. Sowell and Dr. Carson can do more good contributing to the minds of future generations, encouraging them to think for themselves and not fall into the programmed habits the lemmings of this day and time have fallen into. I ask myself if persons such as these two would have any real effect if they were setting in the Oval Office, seeing as most of the elected persons representing us are unable to apply the common sense they seem to possess.
Exactly right. We are plagued with Rino's and Dino's that are forming up to make one party whose title is yet to be determined. This is happening to maintain the good ole boy net work that they fear the Tea Party will eventually crush.
All I'd like for Christmas is to see a government that truly represents the people, not what we have now.
Excerpt: { A Republican with military experience who was skeptical about the Iraq war, Mr. Hagel came in to manage the Afghanistan combat withdrawal and the shrinking Pentagon budget in the era of budget sequestration.}..... To read between the lines. Hagel does not possess the mind of a war monger which is what Obama needs now so he can get us re-involved in a no win war. If this is indeed Hagels conviction then I thank him for having the courage to stand up for it. I suppose who ever sets in this chair next will be more easily controled than Mr. Hagel was.
Technology has also diminished the morality of people. One other natural result of the continuation of technology that is replacing the need for humans is the inevitable need for population control. Another thought is how are Governments going to continue without the taxes they once collected from pay checks that are no longer going to be issued because of the technology that made a human work force obsolete? But the one thing I think about most is who are the technically advanced companies, manufacturers, service companies and so on going to sell their good to? The majority of the population will be out of work.
PATLAR, I have one question, How old are you?
There are already laws on the books for the filing of alien work permits. They have been enforce for a long time and have worked quiet well. Congress has got to get this constitutional hating Muslim's hands tied and if they don't there'll be another shake up come November of 2016.
