    It’s gotten to the point where (as during the Obama administration) anytime we’re promised one thing by Joe Biden’s minions I immediately suspect that the opposite is the truth. And where is the reporter to ask the obvious question: Then why do you need $50 billion more than the head of the IRS has asked for?
