Rep. Serrano: Don't Cut IRS Funding Over IRS Waste

On Monday, at a House Appropriations Subcommittee hearing with new acting IRS Commissioner Daniel Werfel, Rep. Jose Serrano (D-NY) suggested that funding should not be cut for the IRS thanks to scandalous spending, and added that non-profit status should be revoked for all mainly politically-oriented groups. He stated that cutting IRS funding would prevent compliance and monitoring efforts.

“I am second to no one in this Congress in asking for funding for the IRS … while I and others stood to the IRS, it was not doing what it was supposed to do. I don’t care who the groups were, no one should have been targeted, no one should have been singled out for bad treatment,” said Serrano.
