HEARTBROKEN.

The Internal Revenue Service says it will close all public offices for five days over the next five months because of automatic spending cuts.
The cuts went into effect when Congress and President Obama couldn’t agree on a budget deal. Taxpayer assistance centers and toll-free phone lines will be shut down on May 24, June 14, July 5, July 22 and Aug. 30. Most IRS employees will be furloughed those days.
Acting IRS Commissioner Steven Miller told workers in an email that offices may have to be closed an additional two days in August or September, as the agency looks for more ways to save money.

Sorry to tease like that. Five days over five months just proves that the sequester cuts weren’t nearly severe enough.

As for looking for ways to save money, why don’t we avoid letting them accrue costly man hours working on that and let a citizen panel decide where fat can be trimmed from this behemoth.

The 'conservative" movement should be demanding even great implementation to the sequester! I don't get it! Downsize the government and cut spending was the mantra of the movement but now, the sequester is being complained about just as much by the conservative movement as anybody else.

The sequester process seems to be the most likely 'non politicized' method of across the board discretionary spending cuts there is. If downsizing government is an objective of the conservative movement, then cutting the discretionary spending is the *perfect* approach over and over until you reach your desired point. Then, you can begin to discuss the non discretionary spending.

Why are the GOP-conservatives trying so hard to circumvent the sequester process that than increase it?

Government logic: Let's hire 16,000 more IRS agents, then lay them off one day a month because we can't afford to pay them! Brilliant, I say, BRILLIANT!!! How about if we lay-off EVERYBODY who had a hand in crafting Obamacare for about five YEARS. That would save this country trillions.
