National Taxpayer Advocate Nina Olson warns that with ObamaCare, the IRS is now responsible for "the most extensive social benefit program the IRS has been asked to implement in recent history" -- and without "sufficient funding" it won't be able to discharge these new duties, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.

The IRS says it hasn't yet computed how much extra money and manpower it will need.
