    I remember listening to the hearings back in '97ish.  What the IRS did to people back in those years was horrifying.  Everyone lived in fear of the IRS.  Everyone.  Jack booted IRS agents were no more myths than creepy IRS managers who systematically ruined peoples lives.  Clinton did a great thing signing that legislation.  

    I think the connection you're trying to make here, with the possibility that Gramm is about to be outed for involvement in a tax evading scheme with UBS is, well, a little bit tenuous, and kind of besides the point.  This UBS thing is a much better story, and if true, wow!
