IRS Director Shulman – YOU’RE FIRED!

I loved Mr. Spacely.  He was the kind of boss who could make a decision.  When George Jetson screwed up, Spacely would jump up on his desk and scream, “Jetson . . . YOU’RE FIRED!”

If only our government worked like that.  These days, nobody in government is ever responsible for anything.  And nobody ever gets fired.

Take, for instance, our current IRS Commissioner, Douglas Shulman.  Probably a nice man.  Loves his family and is kind to puppies.  But for God’s sake, according to the US Treasury Inspector General’s recent report, his department failed to prevent 1.5 million fraudulent tax returns last year, costing the taxpayers $5.2 billion!

The level of ineptitude, if not outright treasonous subterfuge, is astonishing:

  • the report says the IRS intentionally did not review applications for individual taxpayer ID numbers, mostly used by illegal aliens
  • they sent 23,560 refunds to ten bank accounts totalling more than $16 million
  • 23,994 tax refunds were sent to ONE ADDRESS in Atlanta totalling $46.3 million
  • the inspector general estimates that the IRS will issue $21 billion in fraudulent tax refunds over the next five years.

In the real world, this kind of lunacy could not happen.  Only in ObamaLand is this possible.

If Mr. Spacely was in charge, he would be screaming “Shulman, YOU’RE FIRED!”

And if I were in charge, I would be going after Shulman’s boss.

  1. You are correct, David. Never in our nation’s history has there been tax fraud to this extent, so easily preventable, and with the complicity of government officials. Nothing like this ever happened prior to the Obama administration and their stance on “selectively” enforcing laws, especially with regard to illegal immigrants. Never.

    The US Treasury Inspector General said “IRS managers at the ITIN processing center in Austin, Texas, created an environment which discouraged tax examiners from detecting fraudulent ITIN applications.”

    And you are correct, it is AMAZING that some Americans approve of this utter lack of performance, if not outright sabotage, blindly defending their political “team”.

    Thanks for your comment.
