HATCH ON IRS REINSTATING CANCELLED EMPLOYEE BONUSES

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), Ranking Member of the Senate Finance Committee, issued the following statement today after the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced that it was reinstating bonuses from last year that it had cancelled:

“Let me get this straight: the IRS is accused of targeting conservative groups, with many of its employees having conducted themselves in a manner inappropriate for government officials, and the agency decides to reinstate employee bonuses?  It’s hard to think of a group of people less deserving of bonuses than IRS employees.  Frankly, this is outrageous.  I understand that not every IRS worker was responsible, but this just is the wrong signal to send the American people who were rightly outraged by how this agency treated people for their political views.  I will be discussing this matter with IRS Commissioner Koskinen, especially since his predecessor rightly took the step of cancelling these bonuses.”

    I think there should be an investigation as to why the media ignores the most blatent abuses of power by this administration.
    Except of course Fox News Network. And then Obama says Fox News is
    picking on him because they dare to ask about these abuses. Is the Media on the take???? What’s in it for them. NO news about the IRS hearings (which potentially effects every person in the country). No news about Bengazi hearings. No hearings on the closing down (for political reasons, remember the park ranger said he was told to make it as difficult as possible for the people), the white house, and other national landmarks. I feel like I’m in Russia and we only have the Pravda to tell us what they want us to know.
