Fast Lerner

As John Marshall reminded us, the power to tax is the power to destroy, which is why it's not a good idea to have IRS employees who enjoy their job too much. Patterico notices something from back in 2011 about an IRS official who has been in the news lately:
Lois Lerner, the IRS’s director of tax-exempt organizations who is overseeing the investigation, says many schools are rethinking how and what they report to the government. Receiving a thick questionnaire from the IRS, she says, is a “behavior changer.”
Lerner and her crew, it is now well established, set out to change the behavior of a whole lot of Tea Party organizations in the run-up to the 2012 election.

I'm sure we'll all enjoy the IRS's exciting new role in Obamacare. We should get a whole lot of behavior changers outta that one.
