A group of Republican senators have passed legislation that would grant the IRS commissioner power to fire high-ranking employees that don’t cut the mustard. These would be those with poor performances that are difficult to remove. It would also allow for the removal of any senior executive engaged in misconduct. All of this comes from the outrage that the present commissioner has yet to fire or dismiss any employees who targeted taxpayers as a result of their political affiliations and orientations.
It’s a move by the Republicans to put an end to what they feel has been a targeted campaign by the IRS to weed out right-learning nonprofits. So far, the IRS claims that no crimes have been committed—only acts of mismanagement. There’s a lot of fussing and fighting taking place on Capitol Hill. It takes an expert to keep track of what’s happening with the IRS at any given time.
Remove the politics and the bickering at the highest levels of government, and it clears the way for correct policy making and administration. And that’s a good thing for the country regardless of one’s political affiliations. This is worth keeping an eye on. Or, will it be politics as usual?
