Krusty Konservative: Bruce Braley and Leonard Boswell -- Iowa job killers

Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative

Through Wednesday's passage of H.R. 1105 – The Omnibus Appropriations
Act of 2009 - the U.S. House voted to kill a program that allows
private sector collection agencies to help the Internal Revenue
Service recoup old outstanding tax debts. I'm told that Federal
Treasury Union Employees never liked the program because its success
could have made the case for more effective collections by the private
sector. And the last thing we want to do is create private sector jobs
and reduce the size and scope of government... They had reason to fear
the program's success. As of October 2007 the IRS' Private Debt
Collection Program, which launched as a test program only a year
earlier, successfully closed 9,000 old cases, collecting more than $30
million in outstanding debt.
