NEIL CAVUTO, HOST: I do want to update you on some news that was broken earlier on in this broadcast, if you just tuned in, from J. Russell George. He is the treasury inspector general for tax administration.
Just to get the gist of what the general does is, he — he is the blueprint guy for spending initiatives, in other words: Here’s what you’ve got to do, guys. Here’s what you don’t want to do. Here’s how you’re going to spend this money. Here’s how you should police how it’s being spent, and here’s how you should make sure, in the case of these housing credits — you remember the housing credit program that we had, $8,000 and all of that — that they don’t go to 4-year-olds, they don’t go to illegals, they don’t go to the wrong people.
As you know, a lot of them, thousands of these checks went out to kids, some as young as 4 years old. And a lot of them went out to thousands, about 3,000, illegal aliens.
And now the news that really stung me the most is that among those taking advantage of this who shouldn’t have and indeed illegally did, 53 IRS agents. That is a huge no-no and a huge taboo broken on this air by J. Russell George.
