Why, these will come out in time for them to be remembered during the mid-term elections.  Imagine that.

OF COURSE – IRS Employees To Receive $62 Million in Bonuses

February 4, 2014

Why not? After all, they only politically harassed half the country…

IRS reinstates employee bonuses, ending sequester-related hold on awards

The Internal Revenue Service has reinstated its employee bonuses for fiscal 2013, avoiding litigation with an employees’ union but drawing criticism from at least one prominent Republican lawmaker.

The payouts are expected to reach $62.5 million, compared to $89.1 million for fiscal 2012, according to the agency…

The deal, announced Monday, limits IRS payouts to 1 percent of salaries instead of the 1.75 percent allowed under the agency’s collective-bargaining agreement. The National Treasury Employees Union, which represents most of the affected employees, said it reluctantly agreed to the reduction to prevent a protracted fight.

“Payment of these earned awards to employees is an important step in recognizing their valuable contributions to the IRS and the nation,” said NTEU president Colleen M. Kelley. “The awards are a relatively small amount of money, but they go a long way toward acknowledging the hard work of employees who exceed their performance expectations for the year.”

Neil Cavuto and guests discuss the outrage below.

Constitutions are not designed for metaphysical or logical subtleties, for niceties of expression, for critical propriety, for elaborate shades of meaning, or for the exercise of philosophical acuteness or judicial research. They are instruments of a practical nature, founded on the common business of human life, adapted to common wants, designed for common use, and fitted for common understandings.
