Steve Stockman Offers “Dog Ate My Tax Receipts Resolution”

I really hope this makes it to the House floor. It’d be side-splitting to see that ginned-up outrage from Democrats along with their apoplectic comments

The resolution may be cited as the “Dog Ate My Tax Receipts Resolution.

Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) must allow taxpayers the same lame excuses for missing documentation that the IRS itself is currently proffering

Whereas, the IRS claims that convenient, unexplained, miscellaneous computer malfunction is sufficient justification not to produce specific, critical documentation; and,

Whereas, fairness and Due Process demand that the American taxpayer be granted no less latitude than we afford the bureaucrats employed presently at the IRS;

Now, therefore, be it resolved that it is the sense of the House of Representatives that unless and until the Internal Revenue Service produces all documentation demanded by subpoena or otherwise by the House of Representatives, or produces an excuse that passes the red face test,

All taxpayers shall be given the benefit of the doubt when not producing critical documentation, so long as the taxpayer’s excuse therefore falls into one of the following categories:

1.         The dog ate my tax receipts
2.         Convenient, unexplained, miscellaneous computer malfunction
3.         Traded documents for five terrorists
4.         Burned for warmth while lost in the Yukon
5.         Left on table in Hillary’s Book Room
6.         Received water damage in the trunk of Ted Kennedy’s car
7.         Forgot in gun case sold to Mexican drug lords
8.         Forced to recycle by municipal Green Czar
9.         Was short on toilet paper while camping
10.       At this point, what difference does it make?

In any case, IRS can see the NSA for a good, high quality copy.

Unless the NSA’s computers go down.

    If the IRS has no integrity why would a taxpayer? If the EPA has left off being scientific and is only political why should anybody pay attention. Their only credibility was scientific, if they abandon that, they are just arbitrary government to be disobeyed. If the Courts no longer enforce the law but create the law, they have lost their claim to justice and become arbitrary government. When government at all levels sets out to exceed the agreement and support of its citizens it has lost its legitimacy.

    Under obamacare if you get sick, the doctors will pretend to heal you and the government will pretend to pay for it.

    I suggest that if Congress does not pass and the President does not sign an annual budget by October 1 each year, federal Taxpayers are given a tax holiday until the budget passes. NO BUDGET, NO TAXES

    I further suggest that if Congress does not pass a balanced budget, members are ineligible to run for office ever again.

    Surprised the alarmists didn’t want a “the oceans ate my heat” resolution.

    According to Gallup in June:

    “Americans’ current confidence in Congress is not only the lowest on record, but also the lowest Gallup has recorded for any institution in the 41-year trend. This is also the first time Gallup has ever measured confidence in a major U.S. institution in the single digits. Currently, 4% of Americans say they have a great deal of confidence in Congress, and 3% have quite a lot of confidence. About one-third of Americans report having “some” confidence, while half have “very little,” and another 7% volunteer that they have “none.”

    7% of Americans have confidence in Congress. Thanks Steve Stockman.

    Maybe Steve Stockman should introduce the “dog ate my Congressional staffers” bill. Seems after the OCE contacted Stockman that his staff had made illegal donations to his campaign, he noted they had all resigned just before the donations and were rehired just after. http://talkingpointsmemo.com/muckraker/steve-stockman-congressional-ethics

  4. […] William Teach really hopes this makes it to the House floor for a vote just to see the outrageous outrage the Democrats are sure to gin up. […]

    Right. Because Harry Reid and people like him have nothing to do with the ratings of Congress.

    Oh, and if you bother to read Jeffery’s article from TPM, you’ll see that Stockton was cleared of any wrongdoing and what was found was that the people who pushed for the charges ignored evidence exonerating Stockton.

    So once again, instead of actually addressing the substance of Stockton’s bill, the left decided to attack him hoping that some useful idiots would accept and buy into the lies.

    After all, it worked on Jeffery.
