Citizen Co-Sponsor Bill to Cut IRS Funding by over $340 million

TG 003TW IRS Budget CutThe recent developments of the IRS scandal make it clear – the IRS is an agency that is out of control and must be reigned in.

That’s why the House Appropriations Committee today passed a bill that cut funding for the IRS by over $340 million, putting the scandal-ridden agency’s funding at pre-2008 levels.  It also placed restrictions on employee bonuses, forbids funding from being used to target groups based on their political beliefs, prohibits funding to implement Obamacare’s individual mandate and stops the transfers of taxpayer dollars from the Department of Health and Human Services for Obamacare uses.  The bill will now go before the entire U.S House of Representatives for a vote.

SIGN below to Citizen Co-Sponsor the bill to cut IRS funding by over $340 million.

Demand the IRS Release the E-Mails

IRSComm

This week, the IRS reveled that it can longer find Lois Lerner’s e-mails and the IRS Commissioner told Congress yesterday that the American people don’t deserve an apology. Unbelievable!  The IRS tells you to keep 7 years of tax records, but they can’t keep 6 months of e-mails.

SIGN below to demand the IRS to release the e-mails!

Don’t Raise the Gas Tax

National Review Online: Don’t Raise the Gas Tax
June 20, 2014
By the Editors

Dont Raise the Gas Tax

The federal Highway Trust Fund, historically, is a fund that the government can’t be trusted to spend on federal highways. Unfortunately, Senator Bob Corker (R., Tenn.) is proposing to put more money in it by raising the federal gasoline tax, a proposal he’s concocted with Senator Chris Murphy (D., Conn.).

Corker’s idea is bad policy and bad politics. The politics: Gas prices are rising rapidly, taxes on fuel are regressive, and Americans, rightly, really don’t like when you raise any kind of tax at all.

There’s no pressing policy reason to increase the tax. The trust fund has plenty of money to fund highway priorities that the federal government needs to address — especially if federal money were spent more efficiently. But the fund is running dry because, instead, Congress has repeatedly lavished spending on non-highway priorities and on intrastate issues. Drivers across America shouldn’t have to pay for projects that House appropriators like, but that’s the way the trust fund works now. Corker is proposing to let this continue.

Corker is bound by a pledge he’s made to voters not to raise taxes, but his plan has a way around it: Package the gas-tax hike with renewing a bunch of tax breaks called “extenders” that expired at the beginning of this year. This more than adds up as a fiscal matter, but not an economic or political one. The result would be to cut taxes on particular corporations and for particular kinds of consumption and investment (producing wind energy, for instance) while raising taxes on almost all consumers. Moreover, it’s expected that most of these tax extenders will be renewed at some point anyway, as they are every year, so Corker can’t really claim that they’ll make up for the new tax increase he’s proposing.

We have a better idea: Cut the gas tax and let states pay for the highways within their borders. Senator Mike Lee (R., Utah) and Representative Tom Graves (R., Ga.) have proposed a bill that would do essentially this, and it makes a number of other important improvements to highway policies.

Some American infrastructure needs improvement, and some taxpayer-funded projects eventually pay for themselves, but states are in a far better position to decide which projects are worth financing. American infrastructure is also so expensive that many projects that might be economically sensible are not. This is especially true of federal projects, and Congress should work on that — the requirement that all federal contractors pay an excessive “prevailing wage” is one problem — before it digs its hand deeper into the taxpayer’s pocket.
