Those of us with experience in private industry are accustomed to doing more with less as a fact of life, not so with the IRS bureaucracy. Of course if the IRS had busied itself with audits instead of acting as a political weapon of the Obama administration's campaign of political sabotage tax revenues might have been boosted.
congress holds the purse strings
like I said whaddaya think the hearing were all about.

So you are admitting Obama was helpless or indifferent to Congress. When Congress is steamrolled into the massive Stimulus package or the Federal takeover of healthcare known as Obamacare President Obama is given credit but when there is a complaint about an appropriation it's Congress. Obama shirked his responsibility to work with Congress announcing he would rule by pen and phone but Congress is to blame for cuts to the IRS budget.

The hearings into the IRS campaign of political sabotage to help Obama's reelection campaign revealed its corruption. Not only was the agency weaponized into a tool of political repression its officials told obviously false stories in an attempt to cover up their wrongdoing. As a result of the hearings Congress issued multiple criminal referrals to an Obama DOJ who promptly ignored them after all Obama had declared the IRS free of corruption while the investigation was ongoing, what other action could have been taken?
