What Is The IRS's Problem?

The Cafferty File, part of The Situation Room on CNN, poses a question every hour The Situation Room is on. This is today's 7:00 question, and a response.
------------------------------------------------------------
7 p.m.: What's your biggest beef about the Internal Revenue Service?

The tax code is too complicated, causing loopholes. The code should be simplified, taxing every dollar you make, whether you donate it or not. It's simple things like that; Things that could be taken away and cause everybody a bit less trouble.

The tax code *was* reformed only a few years ago, under Clinton. Then George W came into office and handed out a bunch of tax breaks for the wealthy, and the tax codes got cluttered up again.

Of course it is easy to complain about the tax codes when you aren't the one trying to figure out a way for 300 million people to use the same form.

If the tax system was completely redone, there could be problems in the transition, but in the long run, it could be better.

Thanks for the comments.

I definitely agree that the code should more simple and to the point. So much time and money could be saved by this simple change. The only bad thing is, some people would lose jobs.
