I wonder if the IRS’s new crackdown on tax preparers came out of the dog ‘n pony show called the ‘Job Summit’? You know the one that the US Chamber of Commerce and the National Federation of Independent Businesses were NOT invited to?
Certainly you understand how it’s much more important to invite the unions and special interest groups, oh yes and Obama’s campaign contributors in time for the next election.
Almost every tax preparer I know is self-employed and most do it as a side job to earn extra income. It’s not exactly a cush job with great hours either. The work comes all at once (in a shoebox more often than not) with deadlines and desperate clients all hoping for at least a little of their hard-earned cash back especially now days so they can cover a few more bills.
At the risk of repeating myself and others, please keep this in mind:
“THE GOVERNMENT HAS NO RESOURCES. THEY PRODUCE NOTHING!”
They take from one group or groups and give to others they feel worthy of their largess. They also like to play their hand at social justice as they did recently in killing jobs for United Solar Ovonic, the manufacturer of solar panels. The Michigan-based company ended up having to lay off 80 employees from its Greenville plant in New York state as those jobs now will be given to some 160 prisoners from Otisville, NY.
They can only create jobs by raising taxes in work-make projects (again pay-off to cronies and supporters) or taking jobs from one group and giving them to others more worthy. I guess that’s why the Federal Government has grown and salaries for Federal workers has exploded under Obama. I frankly would rather they concentrate their efforts on keeping terrorists off our airplanes! And forget about Mirandizing the thugs, throw them in the brig and start de-briefing them immediately so we can catch their buddies planning to do the same.
Down with the PC crap or surely more will perish.
