The IRS has spent $96.5 million on office furniture under the Obama administration and is now claiming it has insufficient funding to adequately serve taxpayers.
Treasury Secretary Jack Lew testified before the House two weeks ago about the IRS need for additional funding for the upcoming fiscal year. The IRS is currently seeking an increase of $1.2 billiona 7 percent raise over its FY 2014 $11.29 billion budget. It would bring the agencys FY 2015 budget to $12.48 billion.
A review of contracts by the Washington Free Beacon shows the IRS in the past five fiscal years has spent $96.5 million refurbishing IRS offices across the country.

Starve the beast.
“and is now claiming it has insufficient funding to adequately serve taxpayers”
SERVE taxpayers??!?!?! Who is smoking what? How in the world does the IRS “serve” taxpayers. Maybe “serve” is now a synonym for plunder and abuse.
In the Obamanation Year of 2009, noted Democrat Intellectual, Ex-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, (also an award-winning Co-Author of the now transparently failed Affordable [sic] Healthcare Tax Law), set the Pelosi Federal Standard of Excellence with this now famous quote:
We have to pass the Affordable [sic] Healthcare Bill to find out what is in it, - - - away from the fog of the controversy.
Now, in the Obamanation year of 2014, We, the People, are being accused of looking for a smidgen of evidence, when only boneheaded decisions could possibly exist.
The same Noted Democrat Intellectual, Ex-Speaker Nancy Pelosi, has even gone so far as to label this sort of Constitutional Checks and Balances as being Political Theater.
This is an obvious, transparent contradiction to the incisive legal logic that Pelosi used during her former Democrat zeal to ram through a single party mandatory tax on We, the People on Christmas Eve, 2009.
If We, the People, choose not to correct Ex-Speaker Pelosis latest accusatory, (and, as always undocumented), speech then few will remember what we here today have failed to do in this hour of peril in loyal Patriotic Opposition, (commonly called POd), to the evil, Oppressive, Marxist Regime of the now failed Community Organized as the Obamanation, moving forward.
When a noted Democrat Intellectual of the lofty stature of Democrat Ex-Speaker Nancy Pelosi, establishes such a high Standard of Federal Excellence, as brilliantly, and impeccably displayed in her above quote about the Affordable [sic] Healthcare Law, it becomes incumbent on We, the People, to fervently beseech our sorry Doormat Republicans to fairly apply that same Standard of Pelosi Federal Excellence to other matters of Federal involvement.
Besides, the Democrats own Fairness Doctrine requires that this be so as follows: - - - be very strictly framed in all PC speeches, (as per the dictates of Obama Mentor, published Communist Saul Alinsky), regardless of ethnicity, Country of birth, race, creed, non-Democrat Party affiliation, disgust with politics, low level of voter information, non-subscriber to the New York Times, non- viewer to MSNBC TV, religion, non-religion, gender, or gender of choice.
Then let us, the Oppressed We, the People, do hereby resolve, forthwith, to always enthusiastically be MOVING FORWARD with the Democrat Mandate of the Pelosi Federal Standard of Excellence because:
WE HAVE TO INVESTIGATE THE IRS HARASSMENT OF VOTER GROUPS AND THE 12 MONTH LONG GEITNER-OBAMA-HOLDER-LERNER-BOEHNER COVERUP OF SAID VIOLATIONS TO FIND OUT WHAT IS IN IT, - - - AWAY FROM THE FOG OF THE OBAMA DENIALS.
BTW, since B. Hussein Obama always dictates that he has ordered his crack AG Holder To get to the bottom of this, is that not just another Communist Saul Alinsky Method of deflecting any potentially punitive Investigation away from Where the Buck Stops?
If Obama is ever found to be the one where the buck actually stops, all he has to do is to promise that he, ALONE, will make sure that it never happens again.
Abolish Cincinnati IRS first... apparently, nothing good comes out of it, what with the rogue agents.
Emperor Obama thinks he is Nero. Only difference is instead of a violin, he is playing golf.
“To Serve Taxpayers.”
It’s a cookbook. You’re on the menu.
I’ll bet the 0bama administration finds itself uttering this comment about America a lot: “What does it take to kill this sumbich?!!!.. It just won’t DIE!!”
I wonder why they put 100 million in the title article when it is a lie. I hate when the news people do things like this. Does every dang media group have to lie to get their articles read?
nearly $100 million
96.5 is nearly 100
Not a lie
How much did the IRS spend on ammo?
Much like “Protect and Serve”?
The juggernaught that is Wal-Mart is famous for making do with cheap garden furniture at corporate offices. No frills. Asking to much of our public overlords er public servants?
I thought the article was about the IRS, why bring moooochelle into it?
It’s good to be King-0’s tax collectors.
a long time friend and former fed government work jokes - a billon dollars is a rounding error. So this furniture stuff nto much especially since they will be adding healthcare ovesight
Chain the buildings shut. Let the treasonous bastards starve to death.
Furniture suppliers who are donors reap the contracts, then some of the loot is recycled back again when it's plowed back into Demoncrap campaign coffers.
This is all so uncomplicated and sweet.
You know cleaning the communists Democrats butts might be lots of fun after all.
The IRS is gearing up to turn the Obamacare thumbscrews.
"Serving taxpayers" does not include wasteful spending of taxpayers; money and blatant partisan political oppression.
Clearly the time is long past when a through house cleaning is undertaken at this corrupt outfit.
post # 17 is their new furniture to serve us
News FLASH - The latest emails obtained via FOIA show that Cinciby IRS was act on orders from DC IRS.
It’s no wonder these Progressives are able to get away with so much so many lies told by so many... good folks just get worn down. Get off those false trails and get back in the hunt!
