Tell Congress: Defund All I.R.S. Bonuses!

Though the sequester has kept schoolchildren out of the White House since March 9, the I.R.S. claims it is unable to stop its union employees from receiving as much as $3,500.oo on top of each of their salaries.

Union employees of the Internal Revenue Service are set to receive $70 million in “discretionary monetary rewards.”

That’s right; the I.R.S. – the agency presently under the scrutiny of three separate Congressional investigations due to its criminal attacks on conservatives and the First Amendment – is preparing to dish out many millions in employee bonuses!

Senate Finance Committee member Chuck Grassley says, “The IRS always claims to be short on resources, but it appears to have $70 million for union bonuses.”

Congress must prevent every single one of these bonuses from being distributed; the fact is: union workers employed by the I.R.S. are not exempt from the rules of sequestration.

Take action! Send letters demanding your U.S. Representative and Senators to completely defund all I.R.S. bonuses! No business-as-usual “rewards” for this criminal agency.

The US House of Representatives is the beginning of all revenue bills. If the House says that the IRS does not have to be paid the bonuses, then the agency has no authority to give them. Keep in mind, though, that the IRS is a part of the US Treasury. It's too bad that recreation facilities at a lot of military bases are being closed for "lack of funding," yet the IRS has 76 million dollars to dole out to its employees. I know of federal employees who are getting paid less because of the sequester. So, why should the IRS not only be exempt but penalties place upon others, but reap a huge reward? STOP EVERY PENNY OF BONUSES TO IRS!More mismanagement of US dollars. We the People pay for bonuses to the IRS and to be mistreated by the IRS while the economy is a disaster, people are looking for work and unions and this administration continue to their corrupt practices because they believe they control everything. We the People must defund the bonuses, and eventually shut down the IRS.
