That’s right; the I.R.S. – the agency presently under the scrutiny of three separate Congressional investigations due to its criminal attacks on conservatives and the First Amendment – is preparing to dish out many millions in employee bonuses!
Senate Finance Committee member Chuck Grassley says, “The IRS always claims to be short on resources, but it appears to have $70 million for union bonuses” – a number actually six-million dollars shy of the more recent quote reported by the Associated Press.
What’s as bad as the taxpayer-funded rewards to arguably the most corrupt body in the federal government is the fact that the I.R.S. claims it’s legally entitled to them, despite the White House’s April directive that declared all such bonuses to be frozen under sequestration.
Though the sequester has kept schoolchildren out of the White House since March 9, the I.R.S. claims the mandatory spending cuts are unable to stop its union employees from receiving as much as $3,500.00 on top of each of their salaries.
Congress must prevent every single one of these bonuses from being distributed; the fact is: union workers employed by the I.R.S. are not exempt from the rules of sequestration.
Take action and demand the United States Congress to completely defund all I.R.S. bonuses! No business-as-usual “rewards” for this criminal agency, especially while others are taking mandatory cuts under sequestration!
