Miller is already getting criticized by conservative commentators for saying earlier that the IRS needs a "bigger budget" to help fix the problems its dealing with. And perhaps that was tone-deaf for today's hearing.
But as congressman Earl Blumenauer is saying now, what sense does it make for Congress to keep making the tax code more and more complex without giving the IRS additional resources?
It makes perfect political sense. Which means it's pretty irrational.
