It's time they join the rest of us in the real world of pay cuts/freezes and benefit reductions.

A 25 percent reduction in force would cut out a lot of deadwood and chaff and still get the job done.

When you cut the IRS workers who collect the taxes, the government ends up losing. The amount of lost revenue will be multiple times the savings incurred by letting go nearly 5.000 IRS workers. Each agent brings in multiple times their annual salary every month. This bill is so short sighted.
