The IRS Scandal, Day 1156

IRS Logo 2The Hill, House Rejects Measure to Cut IRS Chief's Salary to Zero:

The House on Thursday rejected an amendment to a financial services spending bill that would have temporarily cut the Internal Revenue Service Commissioner’s salary to zero.

The amendment failed by a vote of 197 to 224, drawing opposition from some Republicans as well as from Democrats.

Republican Reps. Ken Buck (Colo.) and Mark Sanford (S.C.) offered the amendment, which would have reduced IRS Commissioner John Koskinen’s salary to zero from the date of enactment through the date of the presidential inauguration.

“This amendment is necessary because of the serious mistakes by the IRS,” Buck said.

Buck criticized the IRS for subjecting conservative groups’ applications for tax-exempt status to extra scrutiny and for destroying evidence that was subject to a congressional investigation on the political-targeting scandal.
