For four  billion more reasons President Obama and his administration need to go, check out a new Inspector General report: Illegal aliens received $4.2 billion in child tax credits, to which (obviously) they are not entitled by law.

This is the sort of stuff that can happen in a big government bureaucracy, of course.  But it's even worse when one has the distinct sense that the administration has no problem at all "spreading the [taxpayers'] wealth around."

UPDATE: In fact, the IRS staff was "urged" to ignore cases of fraud in the applications for the tax credits.
