The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee convened Thursday for a hearing on the Internal Revenue Service’s posh, multi-million dollar employee conferences.
The federal agency, according to a new IG report, spent $50 million on 225 employee conferences from 2010 through 2012.
And at least three committee members were extremely unhappy with the Treasury report and told IRS chief Danny Werfel and former small business division deputy Faris Fink as much during the hearing.
Here are three Congressmen who made it clear that the IRS is in deep trouble:
3. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.)
“This cannot be solved with another webinar and this can’t be solved with ‘just one more recommendation,’” said the South Carolina congressman.
“It just strikes me we need one single recommendation,” he concluded. “Start over.”
2. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah)
Rep. Chaffetz during his questioning of Fink became visibly frustrated:
1. Elijah Cummings (D-Md.)
Although he doesn’t usually agree with his Republican colleagues, Rep. Cummings on Thursday delivered a bipartisan message to the IRS: Stop wasting our money!
