IRS draws criticism over $70M bonuses
Already reeling from a pair of scandals, the Internal Revenue Service is drawing new criticism over plans to hand out millions of dollars in employee bonuses.
The Obama administration has ordered agencies to cancel discretionary bonuses because of automatic spending cuts, but the IRS says it’s merely following legal obligations under a union contract.
The agency is about to pay $70 million in employee bonuses, said Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa, a senior Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, which has jurisdiction over the IRS.
House votes to cut food stamps by $2B
The House has voted to cut food stamps by $2 billion a year.
The chamber rejected 234-188 a Democratic amendment to a wide- ranging farm bill that would have maintained current spending on food stamps and cut farm subsidies instead. The bill cuts the $80-billion-a-year program by about 3 percent and makes it harder for some people to qualify.
The Senate passed a farm bill last week that would make much smaller cuts to the food stamp program, which has doubled in cost since 2008.
