In the category of catching up, just after midnight on Thursday morning, I spoke on the House floor in support of an amendment that Congressman Ken Buck and I offered to a spending bill for various financial services agencies. One of the agencies that receives its annual budget through this bill is the IRS, and our amendment would reduce the salary of the IRS Commissioner to zero.
Yesterday, the House voted on a bill to fund the agencies that enforce regulations of financial companies and the telecommunications industry as well as the IRS, the federal courts, the postal service, and the Small Business Administration. The bill passed 239 to 185, and I voted yes.
