You don't discuss. You ask questions, get answers, and then Lord your judgement down on the answer - even if someone else is right, even if they are the ones with experience which you don't have. You said IRS hiring had flatlined, I quoted otherwise, you then say I don't understand a budget. Okey dokey then.
A budget ask is not the same as actually receiving the funding and hiring the people.
