Former IRS Chief: IRS Underfunded for Handling Obamacare

by Ian Tuttle

It’s not the political targeting that should worry you when it comes to the IRS handling Obamacare, former IRS commissioner Doug Shulman told the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform today. It’s that the IRS is “underfunded.” Still, Shulman is “confident” that the bureau can more than handle – competently and fairly – this huge new task.

The question, as Representative Scott DesJarlais (R., Tenn.) points out, is whether Americans share that view.
