Order IRS workers to make up lost time

The Internal Revenue Service is in the news again. It said that because of the shutdown, the IRS will delay accepting tax returns up to two weeks. Why don’t the furloughed employees work extra to make up the hours lost during the shutdown? After all, they are getting paid for the shutdown hours lost. They got a free vacation. In addition, some of them probably double-dipped by collecting unemployment. Our federal government is a mess.
