This Must Terrify The Dems

Obama seeks to double tax law enforcement budget

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama proposed on Thursday nearly doubling funds to enforce U.S. tax laws next year, with an aim of more than quadrupling funding for tax compliance to $2.1 billion within five years.

The budget plan seeks $12.1 billion for the Internal Revenue Service, responsible for collecting and enforcing individual and corporate tax laws, for fiscal 2010, which begins October 1. That amounts to a roughly 5.2 percent increase over the IRS budget for 2009, which was $11.5 billion.

The budget proposal, which must be approved by Congress, includes a $890 million request to boost tax enforcement, including in the international arena, an increase of $400 million from 2009.

This must have the entire Obama cabinet waking up at night in a cold sweat.



On a related note, check out his video at my friend Stormin's blog if you want to see something that will really piss you off. Especially watch the short video at the bottom, and catch the woman from MSNBC praising Obama for attempting to keep the GOP from protecting tax cheats. The hypocrisy is incredible.

Chuck, it does not scare the DEMS, when have you heard of the IRS cracking down on any of these DEMS not paying income tax? Any of them go to jail? Never.

Enforcement will be selective like everything else in the thugocracy we have.

You know chuck, the more this guy does, the more radicalised the right becomes. He keeps adding more and more gistapo powers to an already inflated government and at some point Government workers are going to start getting lynched.

I feel sorry for IRS auditors. Jeese, can you imagine what it's going to be like for them?

Hey Chuck tried to say off the blogoshpere but couldn't.

You could have least gave him a pat on the back or something for this instead of throwing a cheap shot :)

Hey Flavor, give him a pat on the back? Ok..... How about giving him a pat on the back for the largest deficit in history? NO... OH! Taking over 2 car companies and giving controlling interest of one of them to the very labor unions that helped tank them... No... Hiring tax cheats and lobbyists after saying he wouldn't hire lobbyists, and the tax cheat is in charge of chasing down tax cheats.... no...don't think so.

Maybe pushing a 12 year old treaty that makes gun dealers extraditable to foreign countries and makes reloading my own ammo illegal? I can't see it.

I give up man, what should we pat him on the back for?

Chuck said...

LomaAlta, point taken

Greywolfe, funny that Bush cut the draconian measures of the IRS and he left office being accused of abusing power, Obama brings it back and he's the champion of the little people.

Flavor, no pat and it was not a cheap shot. He brought this on himself. He forever has no credibility on fighting tax cheats because he filled his administration with them and then made it clear to us that their behavior was excusable for the simple reason that they were in his administration. Bottom line, he wants to harrass common people outside of government while setting up a different set of rules for his ruling class staff.

I'm not criticizing the attempt to collect taxes. I'll even go as far as saying he is doing the right thing in trying to enforce the law. He is being a hypocrite though. Pure and simple.

Enjoy your time with your grandfather.

lol Good one chuck.

Just on the story though, it's to be expected, after all, someone's got to pay for all of husseins 'free' programs you know.

They have nothing to be scared about. They will pretend that all is well, until they get caught. Then they will just claim that it was an oversight, file the amended returns, and go on. No big deal.

Chuck said...

Mk, thanks

Patriot, isn't this true. The Dems get out of trouble by simply blaming their accountant, office staff, wife, dog, etc.

IRS can be used as a powerful weapon against dissenters.
