“A group of 76 House Republicans called on President Biden Thursday to lift the coronavirus pandemic-related emergency powers and establish a plan to “get American back to normal.”
In a letter first obtained by Fox News Digital, House Energy and Commerce Ranking Member Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., said it was time for the White House to take a lead in planning for a future where COVID-19 is recognized as a common respiratory virus rather than an infection that can be “beat” – an assertion the president maintained during his campaign.”
SHOCKING: IRS Loses $400 Million Over Broken Mail Machines
The IRS appears to not be able to do it’s most basic core function.
Per the Washington Times:
“The IRS cost the government more than $400 million over the last three years because it didn’t bother to fix broken mail machines, the agency’s inspector general said in a new report Thursday.
The machines are supposed to automatically identify which envelopes contain payments to Uncle Sam, so they can be quickly processed and deposited.
But the 20-year-old machines are in such disrepair that they kept missing envelopes with remitted payments. Employees shut them off and resorted to looking for payments by hand — a much slower process.”
“Three former executives for a defense contractor were indicted on Thursday following an investigation into an alleged scheme to illegally make donations to Republican Sen. Susan Collins‘s (Maine) campaign and a political action committee (PAC) supporting her during her 2020 reelection bid.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) said in a press release that Martin Kao, Clifford Chen and Lawrence “Kahele” Lum Kee, all of whom the department said were employed by a defense contractor prohibited from making contributions in federal elections, had been indicted for allegedly making unlawful campaign contributions to a candidate for Congress and a PAC.”
