Remember when Obama IRS commissioner Danny Werfel’s promised to suspend taxpayer-funded bonuses to IRS officials? That was complete and utter BS. IRS employees including the likes of Lois Lerner will still get tax payer funded bonuses because of The National Treasury Employees Union contracts. Why in the hell do the blood suckers at the IRS need union representation? That’s anyone’s guess. $70 million of your tax dollars will go for bonuses for Lois Lerner, Sarah Hall Ingram and the ObamaCARE enforcers at the IRS.
But due to a union contract Werfel will not be able to successfully halt all bonuses this year. The National Treasury Employees Union, which represents IRS employees, said that bonuses already promised to unionized IRS workers must be paid, because the bonuses represent work done in 2012, before Werfel canceled bonuses.
The IRS was prepared to pay $70 million in employee bonuses, Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley announced in June. As The Daily Caller reported, the IRS employs 201 full-time union representatives, which prompted outrage from lawmakers.
Republican Rep. Mark Meadows of North Carolina grilled Werfel in a June 6 hearing on the more than $100,000 in bonuses paid to Sarah Hall Ingram, the former head of the IRS tax-exempt division who was later promoted to head the agency’s implementation of Obamacare.
