Seems like this letter would go a long way to sinking Boner's lawsuit.
Just to throw some facts into this circus of the House GOP and their idiot supporters:

Quote:
The administration claimed that it was relying on the Treasury Department's "transition relief" authority, which allows the government to grant relief by section 7805(ca) of the Internal Revenue Code. "The authority has been used to postpone the application of new legislation on a number of prior occasions across Administrations," Mark J. Mazur, the Assistant Secretary for Tax Policy, wrote in a letter to Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI) and pointed to occasions when the Bush administration cited the authority to delay implementation of laws.
"78059(a)":

Quote:
Except where such authority is expressly given by this title to any person other than an officer or employee of the Treasury Department, the Secretary shall prescribe all needful rules and regulations for the enforcement of this title, including all rules and regulations as may be necessary by reason of any alteration of law in relation to internal revenue.
