Since the current IRS system has become polluted beyond recognition and repair, in my opinion eventually a Flat Income or Consumption tax will be instituted putting everyone's skin in the game. Gone will be the progressive Patron Saint of the Accusation card that some are not paying their 'fair share'.It's going to be a wild ride until then.

RS, NOPE!

A warehouse maintained by contractors for the Environmental Protection Agency contained secret rooms full of exercise equipment, televisions and couches, according to an internal audit.

EPA’s inspector general found contractors used partitions, screens and piled up boxes to hide the rooms from security cameras in the 70,000 square-foot building located in Landover, Md. The warehouse -- used for inventory storage -- is owned by the General Services Administration and leased to the EPA for about $750,000 per year.

I see Susan Rice just got promoted, lying must really pay off, examples: Obama liar in chief, Pelosi minority House liar, Reid senate majority liar and the crown jewel the Muhammed Saeed al-Sahaf of the Obama administration Jay Carney... now he can spin a story no facts needed ever!

Are you kidding me.. the IRS is the fastest growing government department there is Obama just handed them the enforcement arm of your healthcare!! The next fastest faction is the EPA. They both need to be hacked back into manageable levels. Our government agencies should never have been allowed to grow into this level of CORRUPTION!

"Don't kid yourself, they have been going on for the past 50 years. "

Agreed; however the wasteful ones have only surfaced recently.

The IRS is a highly corrupt and unethical organization that needs to be DOWNSIZED with the implementation of a much simpler tax code.

Don't kid yourself, they have been going on for the past 50 years. What is really offensive is the IRS of all agencies should be aware of the struggles the taxpayers are having especially after 2009! Shame on them. I wouldn't fire them but there would be a lot of demotions.
