<p>On Wednesday, ABC&rsquo;s<em> Good Morning America</em> had a segment that promoted how, due to budget cuts, the IRS will be forced to<strong> &ldquo;delay those refund checks,&rdquo;</strong> <strong>&ldquo;increase the risk of identity theft,&rdquo;</strong> and maintain an <strong>&ldquo;IRS help line&rdquo; </strong>that <strong>&ldquo;is going to become much less helpful.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>Co-host George Stephanopoulos lamented about <strong>&ldquo;fewer audits means less revenue to the Treasury&rdquo;</strong> to run the federal government and then asked ABC News chief White House correspondent Jonathan Karl if there was <strong>&ldquo;any chance that this can get fixed this year or is it a lost cause for this year.&rdquo;</strong></p>
