Congressman proposes “The Dog Ate My Tax Receipts Act”

Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX) has introduced a bill to extend to all of us ordinary working stiffs some of the advantages and privileges enjoyed by current and former members of the Obama administration, at least where our taxes are concerned.

Here is the full text of the Stockman bill:

The resolution may be cited as the “Dog Ate My Tax Receipts Resolution.”

Expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) must allow taxpayers the same lame excuses for missing documentation that the IRS itself is currently proffering

Whereas, the IRS claims that convenient, unexplained, miscellaneous computer malfunction is sufficient justification not to produce specific, critical documentation; and,

Whereas, fairness and Due Process demand that the American taxpayer be granted no less latitude than we afford the bureaucrats employed presently at the IRS;

Now, therefore, be it resolved that it is the sense of the House of Representatives that unless and until the Internal Revenue Service produces all documentation demanded by subpoena or otherwise by the House of Representatives, or produces an excuse that passes the red face test,

All taxpayers shall be given the benefit of the doubt when not producing critical documentation, so long as the taxpayer’s excuse therefore falls into one of the following categories:

1. The dog ate my tax receipts
2. Convenient, unexplained, miscellaneous computer malfunction
3. Traded documents for five terrorists
4. Burned for warmth while lost in the Yukon
5. Left on table in Hillary’s Book Room
6. Received water damage in the trunk of Ted Kennedy’s car
7. Forgot in gun case sold to Mexican drug lords
8. Forced to recycle by municipal Green Czar
9. Was short on toilet paper while camping
10. At this point, what difference does it make?

    It’s obvious that Obama’s copy of the Constitution was destroyed along with the IRS e-mails.


  2. The dog in the first picture, is he Cerberus from Hades? If it is I always thought the Dems were working with the devil.

    With all the smoke and mirrors it’s tough to remember the main focus of the inquiry to begin with! Both Benghazi and targeting Conservative groups are wings of the same bird (not one in your family tree Bob!), I think it’s time to send in ‘Lulu and Bitsy, the biker chicks’ to peck the truth out of the liars. In the meantime the Global cultist are forging ahead with their world domination – using American troops and equipment to fulfill their goals/agendas. Maybe your ‘Percy the Pickpocket’ could help out there!


    • Lulu and Bitsy would be happy to help. As for Percy, I’m afraid he’s a bit of an anarchist and would be unlikely to cooperate. But Louie and Archibald are always ready to peck someone’s eyes out when the situation calls for it.

        Ha! Having the rights birds on your side for the right job is important! 😊 maybe they could just pull the straw out!
