1000 IRS workers are tax dodgers and you can bet there will be no regime stormtroopers raiding their homes or surrounding their property with snipers to get those back taxes. This report, the documented abuse of power against conservatives along with all the news we have heard to date you would think it would be sufficient to get legislation moving to abolish the IRS move us to a flat tax. That of course will never happen even by those who claim to be on our side. The DC destroyers will never abolish the IRS because both sides of the progressive machine use this weaponized agency to punish their enemies. So when you have a few abusing the system who don't pay their taxes they shrug it off. If you or I fail to pay taxes well then be prepared to have your entire life turned inside out.
We get punished while the elites and their minions break the rules daily. Rewarding bad behavior is now a norm in the US, which obama has fast tracked under his promise of fundamental transformation.
Our Founders got to a breaking point from an abusive dictator over a number of issues and 1 tax, which in relation to today is quite trivial. So "we" got rid of one dictator and got ourselves 535+ dictators along with all the govt bureaucracy built to punish the people!
IRS Awards Bonuses to 1100 Who Owe Back Taxes

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Internal Revenue Service has paid more than $2.8 million in bonuses to employees with recent disciplinary problems, including $1 million to workers who owed back taxes, a government investigator said Tuesday.
More than 2,800 workers got bonuses despite facing a disciplinary action in the previous year, including 1,150 who owed back taxes, said a report by J. Russell George, the Treasury inspector general for tax administration. The bonuses were awarded from October 2010 through December 2012.
George's report said the bonus program doesn't violate federal regulations, but it's inconsistent with the IRS mission to enforce tax laws.
"These awards are designed to recognize and reward IRS employees for a job well done, and that is appropriate, because the IRS should encourage good performance," George said. "However, while not prohibited, providing awards to employees who have been disciplined for failing to pay federal taxes appears to create a conflict with the IRS's charge of ensuring the integrity of the system of tax administration."
Other examples of misconduct by workers getting bonuses included misusing government credit cards for travel, drug use, violent threats and fraudulently claiming unemployment benefits...more
