It's underfunded on purpose. That way the rich people who cheat on their taxes have a better chance of getting away with it.It would not change the fact though that the IRS is heavily underfunded in terms of its budget. If taxing the rich properly would be a priority it would need a bigger budget.
If they get to keep what they extract from audits (over some margin so they didn't just keep going nuts on poor people) they'd have that budget.It would not change the fact though that the IRS is heavily underfunded in terms of its budget.

Hey, she totally got past the 200 meter hurdle that is today's onboarding procedures. If I'd done that, I'd refuse to give up my seat, as well.A woman boarded a Delta flight out of Orlando on Saturday without an ID or a boarding pass, and authorities are trying to figure out how she did it.
According to a police report about the incident, the woman was asked to show her boarding pass when she was found to be sitting in another passenger's seat.
Several Delta employees, including the pilot, reportedly tried to get her to leave the seat, but she wouldn't budge.
"She said very bluntly, 'I'm not moving,'" Jenni Clemons, the passenger whose seat was taken by the woman, told WFTV.
Now that the driver's name has been released, there are also oblique references to her husband's work, which in the vernacular boils down to "he's a spy."

Really, in this day and age it isn't even worth clicking the link. What I find remarkable is a story like that doesn't even make the front page anymore. I checked The Washington Post, Google news, CNN, and even NBC news where the story is from.
I just posted a graph the other day from the economist mentioned by the Times, Zucman. It shows the rich getting richer the last few decades. That's a direct result of them being taxed less. Since they don't have to spend all their income on necessities, they can plow the untaxed income into more investments.Here's the development of the American income tax rates over the decades. Spoiler: the lower incomes indeed today mostly higher rates than the top ones.
It's something more than a careless mistake, I think.Now that the driver's name has been released, there are also oblique references to her husband's work, which in the vernacular boils down to "he's a spy."
Or was. I'd venture that the glare of publicity he is currently sharing with his wife has blasted his security cover to smithereens. Even if he's not directly involved in any undercover operations, the notoriety of her actions will always draw too much attention to his presence in a foreign country. And he could never be posted to a country that might deport his wife to the U.K.
It was a careless mistake with tragic consequences that will haunt both families for the rest of their lives.
