Rep. Stockman Introduces ‘The Dog Ate My Tax Receipts Act!’

Stockman Obama.000“Taxpayers shouldn’t be expected to follow laws that the Obama administration refuses to follow themselves,” said Congressman Steve Stockman (R-TX), in introducing “The Dog Ate My Tax Receipts Act.”


Congressman Stockman introduced the bill Friday in response to the Obama regime’s ridiculous claim that the Obama IRS somehow “lost” Lois Lerner’s emails because her “hard drive crashed.”

The name of the bill is derived from that age-old excuse, “the dog ate my homework.”

“Taxpayers should be allowed to offer the same flimsy, obviously made-up excuses the Obama administration uses,” Stockman said about the bill. 

The bill states that 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.”  

Each of these categories is a humorous dig at several other Obama regime scandals. The ten categories that are allowable excuses by taxpayers according to the bill are:

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?

As you can see, Congressman Steve Stockman has quite the sense of humor.

The end of the one-page bill hilariously says that If the IRS needs “good, high quality copies” of any needed documentation, they should check with the NSA, referencing another scandal in which Obama has been massively spying on Americans without a search warrant, as is required by the Constitution.

The FULL TEXT of the bill is as follows: 

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?

In any case, IRS can see the NSA for a good, high quality copy.
