EPA, IRS loved by Democrats, hated by GOP: Pew

In the latest sign of how deeply Americans are politically divided, the Environmental Protection Agency and Internal Revenue Service are among the federal agencies most admired by Democrats — and hated by Republicans.

The latest Pew Research Center poll of American attitudes of Washington shows finds that the IRS has the lowest favorable rating of any of the agencies surveyed. But that doesn’t tell the real story of how that and other agencies are caught in the political whiplash.

To help, Pew broke out how Democrats and Republicans view eight agencies. The differences are dramatic.

The agency winning an 80 percent Democratic favorable rating is the EPA, followed by CDC at 77 percent, Defense at 70 percent, NASA at 68 percent and IRS at 62 percent. The agency with the lowest Democratic favorable rating, at 46 percent, is the CIA.

For the dumbocrats that don't pay taxes - the IRS is the best agency in the government.... collecting money from taxpayers that eventually is given to them by the government.

For the dumbocrats that do pay taxes - the IRS is the best agency in the world - they think that the socialists in power know how to manage their money better than they can....and they get more from the rich anyway.

Meanwhile the dumbocrats easily buy in to the junk science supporting the EPA!
