Some have been praising the Internal Revenue Service for the lack of problems in its implementation of Obamacare. For example, Politico recently bragged that the scandal-plagued agency “has not messed up — yet” in its substantial role in the law.
The same cannot be said for other agencies, including the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), given disastrous federal Obamacare exchange website, Healthcare.gov.
But a recently released report from the Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA), the watchdog who oversees the IRS, found that the agencydoesn’t have a plan in place to address Obamacare subsidy fraud:

Agents from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) are using Google Maps as part of their tool kit to audit taxpayers and organizations, The Daily Caller has learned.
A redacted IRS letter dated Sept. 8, 2011 reveals that at least in one case the IRS’s examiners used photos of a property, obtained through Google Maps, as evidence to revoke the 501(c)(4) status of a homeowner’s association.
“The road consists of a two-mile loop around the inside of the property. It goes not have any sidewalks or bicycle lanes. The examining agent printed and copied a map from Google Maps (www.google.com) into this report,” states the letter.
