You won't change the IRS until you change congress. Who do you think made all the laws with loopholes to take care of their friends. And it is both parties that do it before you Obama haters start blaming him for all these messes. We have 2 Senators that were a big part of this mess. They have been in congress before Obama was even heard of. That is where the blame should start. The size of goverment has grown steadly sinse these guys were first elected and some of you people keep electing them. Change will only come when we change them.
