RINOs will vigorously protest by writing a kind-hearted memo to Zero.

He is a lawyer and so the fix is truly in...this IRS head won’t be stupid enough to get caught ripping up the constitution and persecuting conservatives.

He can always claim ignorance of the details of what the “little” people under him are/were doing.

Werfel is the one who said, just before the election, that gov't contractors did not need to comply with layoff notification rules.

Forbidding unions from ‘organizing’ the federal employees would be a good start, if the lying sonofabitch actually wanted to fix the problem. In reality, the ones who put this post turtle up on his perch don’t want this very devious emans tothreaten and control Ameircans to go away. Google Aaron Russo and his 2 hour plus video on the Income tax and the world rulers actually running the nations.

"Putting a WH lacky in charge"

Sure sounds like it. It sounds like he was part of developing and implementing Obama's "feel the pain of the sequester" project. And he served as an attorney in the Justice's civil rights division, which if during Obama's first term, means he was on board with the reverse discrimination policies.

I think so and the thinking seems to be since he was already confirmed once, he will sail through Congress.

Congress should put an indefinite hold on him until we get a special prosecutor for the IRS investigation...but they won’t.

If the IRS has no head, won’t that slow down the implementation of ObamaCare? If so, I’ll be very disappointed if someone doesn’t put a hold on the nomination!
