This week Monica Crowley and Christian -- welcome everybody.
And as you sit home.
And write out your tax check to Uncle Sam.
-- look at what the IRS has been spending your money on.
It's more so we thought it.
There's money laundering bribery anticipate haircuts and manicures running rampant industry.
When he remember what's important.
Enhancing the taxpayer experience and bring some -- and the unit can famous me too that's why I became.
-- -- Oh -- the tax agency claims these training tapes were made a few years ago.
And actually helped save taxpayer money but lawmakers on both sides of the aisle.
Not buying it and demanding answers.
Jonathan -- you say you have the answer is already.
Eric if we want to live long and prosper we've got to slash and burn I mean my god this is this that -- -- government is parasitic.
And let's not take they take they take in of course they spend their entire budget a total waste of money like this because they know they don't spend that they're not gonna get the money the next year -- -- At the US government is the largest employer in the world is pathetic in the IRS is it probably the most pathetic.
Their budgets twelve billion dollars a year to think about it is basically forty dollars for every man woman and child.
For them to actually take 40% awe of your earnings we need -- minute not parasite and then Paris well -- it's -- to start.
What's this what's pathetic is I almost didn't recognize that you weren't Spock -- -- -- our pocket correct idea.
You are -- of it just might normally I got right away when -- -- there -- so many places so many places that waste fraud and abuse happened in DC this is just acknowledge gross example now.
What what it's got.
Eric it's ludicrous I mean not only is that a waste of taxpayer money.
But -- up badly made.
I mean there acting is bad the production is -- and -- laugh track they actually put a laugh track in that that is.
Outrageous and ridiculous I mean you give -- And you know when you sit and say okay we're going to go and why do you is that why use those particular things -- -- Gilligan's Island by the way.
I just want you to know I was down I was out fishing this morning and I found this in a bottle.
You know yeah I like on Gilligan's Island I found the answer right idea and guess what it says this is about the IRS.
All of you are fired yeah well hey hey Wayne actually and that you love yourself just before the -- didn't -- it says Monica I'm.
And -- to happy million dollars for TSA uniforms now we get videos about Gilligan's Island Star Trek and we're gonna roll a little tape -- a zombie video and -- as you know I love Bobby.
Right listen I've never actually seen an episode of Star Trek but now courtesy of the IRS I feel that I have so I just want to thank them for that.
I'll look if our fiscal situation weren't so desperate and an outrageous this would be laughable right.
By way of trying to apologizing IRS said well we wouldn't make those videos today well -- videos were made in 2010 will we had trillion dollar plus deficits at the time.
Did the -- -- problem is government has no profit motive.
So there's no motive for them to try to run things efficiently and when they're dealing with taxpayer money by the way there's this I really sick irony here.
In the abuse of taxpayer money here -- happening by the tax collection agency.
It is so outrageous but we do you think that grabbed the pubs public's attention right.
Gilligan's Island Star Trek so does being banned in New York City -- have the public's attention than you can educate them.
About the incredible waste fraud and abuse going on -- Christian Dorsey sitting in DC this these videos are really funny only thing -- they're not so funny.
-- their horrible videos but let me give you a little map I put this in perspective these videos cost all of 60000 dollars.
And by producing the videos the IRS didn't spend.
A million and a half dollars in training costs so using that -- that sounds like a pretty Smart and prudent move.
A million and a half saved so even though these videos are absolutely horrible what I've -- when valued at.
Where did you hear all money they replaced I have to ask you have to push back where it would come -- -- millionaire dollars.
That's what the -- said that these global events Thursday's off the automatic that's all I should know I should continue to work on the very I'm -- to.
That's it then why would they Satan in today's day and age we would never make them like so why are we denying that -- backtracking you know -- I mean I mean look if that's the -- are horrible video a lot of but expensive -- and let its money should -- -- -- I mean look at this point we're talking we're nickel and dime and I get that.
But it's the principle that they think they can get away with this.
The show bunch of people with some stupid -- for ginger in a bathing -- and they think it's okay and unfortunately it's our money like Jonathan and we're not.
Nickel and dime when you add them -- -- but it is videos of this history there's training videos of bad there's trips to the West Coast -- these -- gonna do it again.
There's the zombie apocalypse weekend where we spent a thousand dollars per head -- law enforcement agents and officers to a place to go.
Role play -- what would happen if these zombies attack.
-- mean Erik added up and of course it adds up to quite a bit of money into my -- point.
And every American has tightened his or her belt or the last couple of years but government again to Monica's -- had no incentive because they only survive.
-- -- the IRS is the worst of the bunch I -- I think.
Think -- the -- to kind of prove that you cut a little bit from government and it's not gonna leave the lights going now a nuclear apocalypse in fact the economy will thrive if we cut government.
The videos -- terrible but the IRS is even more terrible we need to cut government from the top down and wasting money like this are great place to start to Wayne Rogers -- -- did they offer you our role in any of these.
But no thank god they didn't.
I don't know if -- been desperate I guess I probably would have taken what but this is.
Outrageous and so badly done I mean -- moron could have produced and directed this when his eyes closed it was really just an awful -- We don't you come back that this thing about incentive and all of that and yes this crying is you said about -- sequestered for example when the president said and his speech after that oh my goodness you know that.
Kids -- I mean that people who sweep the holes in the White House they're gonna have to cut those jobs that -- a at a think that we -- four million -- going to play golf with Tiger Woods.
It's the high puck proceed from -- -- -- of every one in the government who looked at these things it doesn't think anything up.
-- -- isn't a big deal -- -- spent 60000 dollars -- 60000 dollars my friend -- a lot to a guy look -- hey how about what I.
As a former can't tackle -- I got -- defending IRS for like four seconds even -- it's black with -- here at this table.
They don't make the rules they enforce them.
It's a bonus standing congress that come up with these alluding to and tax -- ducks into my gonna give money to this month.
And then missing the address I'll let illegal enforced and -- -- of the people of the brain power to do it until unfortunately they're stuck with coming up a really stupid waste.
In any more of their work that into a -- I'm more than we let him -- Yeah they're thinking about -- Monica take a look at this tweet that wouldn't Shatner put up just after he watched that video he says go ahead.
So what's the -- video I'm up all at the utter waste of US tax dollars even kept -- How about the circus -- that's when you know you're in bad shape right.
Outlook nobody in the iris to Tracy and I love you dearly but nobody in the IRS when they said okay we're gonna run the script and do this video nobody -- the presence of mind to say.
You don't appear really bad idea this might look that this is costing the taxpayer money -- the tax collection agency.
Lying on the.
-- to exercise some good judgment we have to go and I wanna make -- Christian won the last -- you really want to defend these guys one more -- it's not about defending -- is -- putting things in perspective -- 60000 dollars is what we're talking about and -- 450.
Billion dollars -- cost the US economy every year through tax paid admission that the real issue they -- -- the White House tours for about a week but that's -- -- sixty -- -- a lot of -- I would rather see definite -- that you got to leave it right -- coming.
