House Republicans Hope To Cut IRS Budget By $3 Billion

House Republicans are pushing legislation that would slash the IRS's budget by $3 billion for its "inappropriate actions" in targeting political groups.

The bill would place several additional restrictions on spending at the embattled agency and prohibit employees from implementing the individual mandate in ObamaCare.

The fiscal 2014 spending bill released by House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) would allocate $9 billion for the IRS, which is $4 billion below President Obama's budget request and more than $3 billion less than what House Republicans pushed last year. The agency received $12 billion in fiscal 2013.
