This Brit Feels Bad For... The IRS?
Let's play a game. You tell me what's worse:
a) A British guy telling us we should feel bad for the IRS?
b) That way too many liberals get their news from this guy, because they don't know the difference between an actual reporter and a comedian who shares their political opinion?
c) You will now have Michael Bolton stuck in your head all day.
There are any number of criticisms one can make about this video and the sympathy that liberals want you to feel for the poor little IRS workers because of how mean everyone is to them. Here's 2 of them.
1. The part about the "budget cuts" delaying your return is a bunch of crap. Budget cuts shouldn't effect the government giving YOUR MONEY BACK TO YOU. That's what your tax return is. The government takes too much of your money over the course of the year. You know it, they know it, and so they let you have some of it back. For most people, it's as easy as someone pressing a button and sending your return automatically to your bank account. It's probably even the same button they use to watch porn while at work collecting a government salary...paid for, ironically, by your tax dollars. If the IRS can give President Obama his $20,000 refund back on time, they can do the same for you. I'm assuming it's less than $20,000?
2. The IRS needed close to 7000 new employees and an additional $1billion dollars just to comply with Obamacare. That's close to 7000 new employees who could be helping people with legitimate tax questions as opposed to dealing with another massive government expansion. An expansion that that precisely 52% of the country hates, by the way. If the IRS can't operate under its current budget - which it had no problem doing in the late 90s - blame the people who supported the crap sandwich known as "free" health care.
