Getting rid of the IRS wouldnt be a bad thing. The tax code needs rewritten without a doubt I dont think anyone can argue that.
So depending on how you did it getting rid of the IRS could be an option and a good one if it was written right. Or continue to use them but with a different tax code.
But the the bailout money has put us into a financial mess without a doubt.. if we will be able to get out of it smoothly or not is the question.
To the thread creator; why did we have to bail them out? We could have let them go under and some people suffer. Major car manufacturers go under then new ones will spring up. A couple hard years and then things turn around with a new company. I dont really think we should have done this because goverment intervention got us into this mess and alter the free market so the free market prolly couldnt have got us out of it on its own very efficeintly. But come on did we really need this much bail out... bankruptcy court is there for a reason.
