We should be grateful for the IRS? That's a laugh

I'd like to thank Colleen Kelley, national president of the National Treasury Employees Union for the best laugh of my day ("Unionized employees don't run the IRS," July 12). Claiming that our nation is fortunate to have one of the most efficient tax collection systems in the world, staffed by trained, dedicated public servants, was absolutely hilarious! I'm sure the taxpayers feel very "fortunate" paying unfair, exorbitant taxes every year, and the many conservative groups that were targeted by these "dedicated" servants were equally happy to be delayed or denied their tax-exempt status. Not to mention I'm positive the taxpayers just love to get those sweet little notices in the mail that they are being audited by these caring professional servants of our government. Give me a break!
