Did everyone see this? I missed it and I can't find it here...


WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama proposed on Thursday nearly doubling funds to enforce U.S. tax laws next year, with an aim of more than quadrupling funding for tax compliance to $2.1 billion within five years.

The budget plan seeks $12.1 billion for the Internal Revenue Service, responsible for collecting and enforcing individual and corporate tax laws, for fiscal 2010, which begins October 1. That amounts to a roughly 5.2 percent increase over the IRS budget for 2009, which was $11.5 billion.

It costs $12 Billion to run the IRS?

They (the government) unquestionably believe that you are stealing their money, the war on those who wish to keep their property is about to begin ... this idea of your money being 'their money' is the single most perverse , delusional argument ever made and propagandized in human history.

I read it before, but maybe not here.

This type of stuff usually comes out a week or two before April 15th. Scare tactics.
