Cornyn Introduces Bill to Prohibit IRS Bonuses, Force Agency to Comply with Investigation
by John Cornyn on June 24, 2014 at 7:48 PM
Today, I introduced the Holding IRS Leadership Accountable Act to prohibit bonuses to senior-level executives of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) until all Congressional requests for documents, including e-mails related to the investigation of the agency’s targeting of taxpayers, are met.
If President Obama’s IRS thinks it can stonewall Congress by running out the clock, then the Administration gravely underestimates the American people’s desire for transparency and accountability from their government. This legislation will pressure President Obama’s IRS to comply with congressional investigators and answer the American public’s demand for the truth.
