You Get What You Pay For: Lessons From the IRS Scandal | The Exchange - Yahoo! Finance

Gee didn't see "we need more tax dollars for them" coming.....this is how our government works, write laws and create bureaucracies to bollucks up the works then offer up more laws and even bigger, more powerful bureaucracies to fix the first screw-up.

Look, command and control economies do not work, they only lead to more command and control and less real proprosperity. Have we already forgotten that these people leaked personal financial information about the administrations enemies to Pro Publica? Do you really trust that they'll be better behaved with more money, more power and simple slap on the wrist and now access to all your medical information? The amount of coercive intimidation that's coming will make this recent activity look like a civil disagreement. People are too corrupt to be trusted with that much power...period. There is nothing "progressive" about these activities, this is the stuff of the Tudor dynasty.

How about this instead, eliminate the IRS and reorganize the Treasury to collect and disperse , eliminate corporate taxes, charge a flat 15% tax on EVERY dollar EVERYONE makes after the first $40K without any deductions (that's essentially what the first $40K is)?

And then send everyone with their fingerprints on this to jail with loss of pension and healthcare benefits. We have come so far from "Government of the People" to Banana Republic that only major restructuring will stop this run away train.....
