US Senate confirms Biden’s pick for IRS gang shot-caller

Source: Politico

“The Senate on Thursday confirmed President Joe Biden’s pick to head the IRS, handing veteran federal government official Danny Werfel the high-pressure responsibility of spending a massive new windfall meant to transform the agency amid a fierce GOP offensive against virtually everything it does. The Senate voted 54-42 to approve Werfel, with the support of six moderate Republicans who said he was a competent manager with the ability to steer the agency in the right direction.” (03/09/23)
