The one part of Obama's economy that is "doing fine."

Well, this is a switch. Rather than a "tax lawyer and CPA full employment act," as with most tax legislation, we get an "IRS full employment act."

Imagine that. Why, what on earth could cause such a demand for something as simple as paying taxes.Penalties? Fines? Whatever they decide to call it? AHH,Thats why. They have no clue and need more heads to scratch in unison over this perplexing conumdrum.

See? Who said Obama never created any jobs?

Great. And in their haste to fill all of the billets, we will be rewarded with the same type of high quality workforce that we have with the TSA.

I wonder how much additional taxpayer abuse will come from inadequately supervised, ambitious new hires at the IRS.

Well, as you know, the private sector is doing fine, but the public sector needs bulking up. This will help.

What will happen when ObamaCare is repealed and these new employees become superfluous? Anybody think they'll be let go??

Actually, I hope this is true. Too often I get the sense that lax government compliance enforcement makes taxes only for the idiopathically law-abiding. Taxes for everyone is more fair than taxes for the honest.

They will all be in the unemployment line next year, fortunately.

One way to fight this monstrosity of a law is to have Congress cut the IRS's funding. They won't be able to afford to enforce it.
