Boustany Slams ‘Completely Wasteful’ IRS Training Videos

BY:

Rep. Charles Boustany, Jr. (R,, La.), a member of the House Ways and Means subcommittee, ripped the Internal Revenue Service Monday on Fox News after news broke of "training videos" with "Star Trek" and "Gilligan's Island" themes that cost taxpayers upwards of $60,000.

"I'm furious about it," he said. "The IRS has come to us repeatedly wanting more resources, to hire more people, claiming they cannot do their job, and yet, they do something really outrageous like this, which is a complete waste. I spoke with the acting commissioner of the IRS earlier today and he admits this was completely wasteful and should not have been done."

Host Greta Van Susteren did not hold back either, calling the videos "stupid."
