WASHINGTON, D.C. – The IRS is unable to account for $67 million spent from a slush fund established for Obamacare implementation, according to a Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) report released today.
The “Health Insurance Reform Implementation Fund” (HIRIF) was tucked into Obamacare in order to give the IRS money to enforce the tax provisions of the healthcare law.
The fund, totaling some $1 billion of taxpayer money, was used to roll out enforcement mechanisms for the approximately 50 tax provisions of Obamacare.
Well let’s face it, when you create a billion dollar shush fund you’re bound to suffer some ‘leakage’ as unauthorized people dip into it for this and that.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Government ATF agents acting without authorization conducted dozens of undercover investigations of illegal tobacco sales, misused some of $162 million in profits from the stings and lost track of at least 420 million cigarettes, the Justice Department’s inspector general said Wednesday.
Hmmm, let’s see at around 25 cents a cig that comes to $105 million…
Oh hang on a sec, I gotta take this call. Hello. What’s that you say? The US Military lost what in Libya? No $hit…
According to State Department and military sources, dozens of highly armored vehicles called GMV’s, provided by the United States, are now missing. The vehicles feature GPS navigation as well as various sets of weapon mounts. Fox News is told the vehicles provided to the Libyans are now gone.
Along with the GMV’s, hundreds of weapons are now missing, including roughly 100 Glock pistols and more than 100 M4 rifles. More disturbing, according to the sources, is that it seems almost every set of night-vision goggles has also been taken.

Geezus-effin-Christ! That’s got to be close to a billion dollars in hardware. How the fugg do you just walk off with dozens of armored vehicles? Who the hell was supposed to be guarding that stuff?
I think it’s a safe bet that this stuff wasn’t pirated away by the good guys. Well, I’m sure they’ll turn up at the next terrorist attack.
Maybe John Kerry can send another one of our expendable ambassadors to try and buy the stuff back.
If you recall, we had a bunch of missiles stolen in Libya back in 2011. Pretty sure that’s why ambassador Stevens was sent to Benghazi by Hillary in 2012 and why the Obama regime is being so tight lipped about his reason for being there.
Hey a$$holes, we ain’t totally stupid ya know, we read the news and we remember.
Ya know what happens next folks?… When the going gets tough, the turd goes golfing.
