The IRS commissioner on Tuesday brushed aside GOP proposals to abolish his agency, insisting the U.S. would have to have a tax collector one way or another.
“You can call them something other than the IRS if that made you feel better,” the agency’s chief, John Koskinen, said after a speech at the National Press Club. ( More at The Hill )
Rename it to: It Really Sucks… then abolish it!
Don’t think you can’t be replaced! Everyone can be replaced. And when the conservatives take over, they’ll make sure you are the first to go!

Someone please smack that son of a _itch baldheaded…oh..never mind.
There will always been a need for a revenue service. A modern architecture should mean less people, a simplified tax code, and without a bureaucracy that has been proven to be used for political ends.
As Milton Friedman has noted, prior to WWII you had to pay your taxes to the government rather than having them withheld. I’m sure a return to the prior process could be accomplished.
We can still get rid of Koskinsen, so there’s always that.
Once the WH is in adult hands this government should reform civil service terms of employment to retain bureaucrats based on performance / merit only.
Hey. The fucking guy is right!. You can’t abolish him or them.
No more than you can get to the answer behind Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the IRS shit. Hillary , Reid,and the rest of them will tell you to fuck off and mind your own fucking business. Which is what they have been telling RINOs for the last 10 years.
Please don’t torment me tonight.
The USA must have a tax collector. But it obviously doesn’t have to be this collection of lying criminal scum.
To which President Lazlo replies: I would not only abolish your ass, I would retrain every agent as washroom attendants.
LISTEN UP, YOU FUCKING MORON! REPEAL THE 16TH AMENDMENT AND PASS THE FAIRTAX AND ANY TAX COLLECTION AGENCY WILL BE A FEW PEOPLE IN A MODULAR HOUSE IN KEOKUK.
FUCK YOU AND THE SOCIALIST STEAMROLLER YOU DRIVE OVER THE CONSTITUTION AND RIGHTS OF THE CITIZENS OF THIS COUNTRY.
AND IF I FORGOT, FOAD!
Elect me president. On February 1, 2017 I give pink slips to 50% of all IRS personnel. On February 15, 2017 I give pink slips to 50% of those remaining. And every two weeks I give pink slips to 50% of the remaining IRS scumbags until only the commissioner and an administrative assistant remain. Then the assistant gets a pink slip.
The president can’t abolish the IRS; only congress can do that. But that doesn’t mean the president has to employ more than one person in the department.
This will serve two outcomes. It will tell the Gestapo that they are NOT in charge of anything. It will force congress to repeal the 16th amendment and pass the FairTax because there isn’t anyone around to enforce the thumbscrew and strong-arm tactics of socialist income tax collection.
And by the way, Koskinen. Fuck you.
A dozen lines on a post card and you’re toast, punchy.
Koskinen is always battling for the top spot on my “most punchable face” list.
A flat tax where everybody pays so that everyone has skin in the game. Do the same on the corporate side then start the process to cut the IRS to 5% of it’s current staff load. Accomplish that in 4 years and the IRS will cease to be a political weapon.
Shrink the Government to 10% of what it is today, eliminating the IRS will go far, and a consumption tax both Corporate and individual. No need for the IRS if you collect the tax at the purchase.
Point 1). Lack of Obamacare charge $191. Paying on a previous tax year debt late; Failure to pay on time charge: 117.16. Interest charge: $61.07. Just?
Point 2).the tax system began right there in the New Testament. It will end upon satans’ restraint when the earth is restored to its’ original condition, men be men and women women, civilized, property owned no liens, JUST the way we desire now, but without the coercive expense of paying for anothers’ irresponsible behavior.
Someone noted a while back that he’d look right at home in an SS Colonels uniform.
They were right.
The Eternal Revenue Service lead by an evil little toad.
“IRS chief to GOP: You can’t abolish us”
Wanna bet, asshole? Start pissing off people and enough will refuse to file. Soon, it will pick up speed as more and more people refuse to tow the IRS dictate until a national movement explodes over it.
We know where YOU live too, Mr. Koskinen.
He can work for the IRS but his pay will be reduced to $15.00 an hour with no benefits as it will be a considered a “Service to Your Country” job.
“Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of an IRS Agent” ain’t in the Constitution.
this fascist Koskinen has all the mentality of a buggy-whip manufacturer in the early 1900’s.
