Taxpayers are paying out 4 billion a year for fraudulent tax returns and the IRS knows it and does nothing. Republican congress would rather starve amercans than do a some work and cut this 4 billion out of the budget.

All the more reason to get rid of the IRS and go to the flat tax or fair tax. Now with regard to blaming the republican congress - the IRS is the agency who is supposed to keep people in line when it comes to taxes not the republicans.

And if you don't believe me, don't file a return and see what happens - it won't be the republicans coming after your wages you can be sure of that.

im referring to republicans that would cut food stamps, instead of doing thier job and stopping the irs . its fine with me that irs lets this happen,, just not at the same time they want to cut aid to americans.

I haven't heard of republicans who would cut food stamps, but I have heard that the dems haven't submitted a budget in over 3 years.

Which is worse?

House Passes Bill Stemming Defense Cuts

The House of Representatives voted Thursday afternoon to pass the GOP’s plan to replace the sequestration or automatic cuts that would have slashed the defense budget with another set of budget reductions that curtail domestic programs.

The Republican proposal would, among other things, cut Medicaid and food stamp spending, reduce spending for President Barack Obama's health care reform law, strip regulators of the ability to wind down failing financial firms, and end a White House program meant to help struggling homeowners (Silverleib, 5/10).

The Sequester Replacement Reconciliation Act of 2012, which passed 218-199 with one member voting present, received no Democratic support. Sixteen House Republicans joined 183 House Democrats in opposition

while republicans spout this drivel. and intend to waste billions more on war toys while kids go hungry and old people die suffering from lack of health care.

Defense hawks warn the automatic cuts would mean a 200,000 troop cut, military base closings and a significantly smaller Navy and Air Force. The Pentagon brass has warned repeatedly the automatic cuts would have a debilitating effect on readiness.

a 79 billion dollar waste. for air shows.
