The House voted to block performance bonuses for senior Internal Revenue Service executives Wednesday, The Hill reported. Giving out bonuses is ludicrous and amounts to a slap in the face to the American public, said Rep. Paul Gosar, who introduced the amendment.

I’d say a good start is the billion penalty and pull ALL of their guns.
All of them.
Cuz right now there’s no incentive TO BE NICE.

Only Democrats voting against it. WHAT a surprise.
It’s about time they did SOMETHING. Now if they would just defund the parties and vacations for the royal family, that would be peachy.
It’s one of those ‘reduction in future increases’ fake cut.

A step in the right direction

Simply another GOP dog and pony show. ALL of the money (and probably some extra) will be restored in conference when Harry Reid refuses to accept ANY cuts at all in anything, and the cowardly GOP House will quietly acquiesce, yet again for the umpteenth time.

This is what I’ve been talking about. Simply defund Obama’s nonsense and be done with it. Congress has the power. The Senate gets no say in the matter.

What is a slap in the face, Mr. Gosar, is allowing Lois G. Lerner to remain a free woman.
Nobody’s fooled by this dog and pony show.
