Tea Party: Hire More IRS Employees

According to an inspector general's report released earlier this week- the IRS was completely understaffed in 2009 and 2010 to address a flood of 501c4 applications after Citizens United.

The Tea Party's solution?

More government employees. Really.

Dan Backer, a Washington-based Tea Party attorney, went on NPR yesterday morning and said that the IRS in 2010 should have simply hired more employees to process requests . . .  all while fighting everyday to eliminate the IRS entirely.
