Loathing the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is not an exclusive to libertarians and limited government activists. In fact, the IRS is probably the most hated government agency of them all. And given the long list of disreputable options to choose from, garnering that title is extremely impressive.
Unfortunately for the prospects of tax relief, President Donald Trump, the newly elected "man of the people" who vowed to drain the proverbial swamp of all corruption upon taking up residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, nominated a Treasury Secretary who wants to make that swamp a little wider.
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who was confirmed earlier last month, has expressed some disturbing views when it comes to his long-term vision for the IRS; needless to say, abolition of the agency is definitely not part of his plan.
For Mnuchin, making America great again means making the IRS even bigger than it already is—every American's worst nightmare.
