There is no doubt that the people of the IRS do a fine a job in making sure the taxes are paid; however, $70 million alone for just a bonus seems a little stiff for me. That is a lot of money that could very well be put somewhere else that could need it.
The IRS should not be allowed to pay out its employees $70 million in bonuses because our economy and Government is struggling financially. Schools are still actively laying off workers, parks and recreations are being cut. Spending needs to be cut too dramatically. For these reasons the IRS should not get bonuses for its employees.
