Washington (CNNMoney) - IRS chief Danny Werfel told employees on Tuesday he's working to stop bonuses and instead cut back on furloughs.
The news comes after an outcry over IRS plans to award $70 million in bonuses by Sept. 30. Werfel told his 90,000 Internal Revenue Service workforce that he aims to reverse the plan to award bonuses, according to a memo. He blamed the move on the sequester - the $85 billion in forced spending cuts that has hit all federal agencies.
Obama's sequester at it again. Here in California unemployment has been cut 17.69% due to Obama's sequester. This is what is on the recording from the EDD (unemployment office). So much for 2-3%. Dems will make sure people suffer jsut so they can try and prove their point.
