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.
