GOP Congressman: Sprawling, Despised Government Agency with a History of Inefficiency That Just So Happens to Be a Convienent Political Target Is Misprioritizing Things Because ObamaCare

That is, Dave Camp doesn't believe the IRS's story that the shutdown is the cause of the delayed tax filing season:

“The IRS claims that it will be unable to process tax returns on time, despite being able to do so multiple times in the past when it has been responsible for adopting major changes to tax law.  Given that the agency has already had nine full months, and still has nearly three more, there is no reason the IRS should not be able to do its job on time. The failure of the IRS to start the filing season as scheduled will be a financial burden to potentially millions of hardworking taxpayers who depend on an early tax refund to pay their rent, make a car payment or pay off bills from the holiday season.  While the IRS says it cannot start the filing season on time, somehow it found the most essential operation to be the implementation of the President’s health care law.  The IRS needs to explain why implementing the President’s health care law is more important than processing tax returns in a timely manner.”
