Obama’s IRS spends nearly $100 million on office furniture
FOX News ^ | May 12, 2014 | By Mary Lou Byrd

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 billion—a 7 percent raise over its FY 2014 $11.29 billion budget. It would bring the agency’s 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.

“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 Pelosi’s 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 “PO’d”), 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 Democrat’s 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.”

FORWARD !

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?

Cronyism, pure and simple.

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.

As soon as we abolish the IRS we will have tons of new furniture for other government bureaus and will not have to buy furniture in he future for years and years. And as a side note as soon as we take all the military hardware from organizations like the BLM and send them to the National Guard we would save millions in State budgets.

You know cleaning the communists Democrats butts might be lots of fun after all.

"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.
