24 April 2014

Cattle grazing in the American West is heavily supported by federal subsidies and benefits only a small rural elite, says journalist Susan Zakin in smart comments to my post ‘Bundy Ranch.

Yes, IRS gave bonuses to employees who owed back taxes, however…

23 April 2014

The bonuses were uncovered by the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration, not an outside investigation. TIGTA is independent, does internal audits, and is the equivalent of Internal Affairs in law enforcement. They are feared. And they did their job correctly and well. The report doesn’t say what rank the IRS employees were. I doubt […]
