Cue the tiny violins:

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. Internal Revenue Service may need to spend money on its Obamacare implementation at the expense of other agency programs due to budget constraints, its new commissioner said on Monday.

John Koskinen, sworn in on December 23 to lead the tax agency, did not elaborate on what programs might suffer to ensure full funding for the IRS’s numerous jobs in putting into effect President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010.

They probably won’t cut back on the Tea Party crackdown division. They probably already have cut back on spending to investigate said crackdown.

The IRS’ budget and staffing have been cut by Congress in recent years. “I hope that one of my legacies … as IRS commissioner will be that we put the agency’s funding on a more solid basis,” Koskinen said.

Yeah, you’re alone in that hope.

Cut back on spending? That's a laugh, they'll probably just delay income tax refunds for a year or so.
