    Some targets are more deserving than others.

    Let’s see, groups that say they hate government, clalim taxes are illegal, and/or say they refuse to pay them, and submit for “tax free” status, hmm, why would they ever warrant additional investigation on their status requests?

    Such an allegation would have to exist outside your bigoted imagination, face it these goons went after the Tea Party for critisizing their crooked agency and their crooked party masters.

    5 out of 5 chuckles on this one. Fun fact the guys who rewrote the and sanitized Obamas Lie Buzzword talking points on Benghazi are brother and a sister of the president of ABC and NBC go figure right?

    The increase of “issue driven” legislation groups like the ones filing for the new 501C designation created problems for the IRS. They apparently needed to investigate new applications to see if they were “political” or “issue” driven. On top of a doubling of applications for this status, the IRS decided to have all of these applications run through one office located in Ohio rather than spread throughout the country.
    Too much paperwork, too few workers, and a very small group of samplers. The IRS is also effectively functioning without a supervisor since the last one, a Mr. Schulman who was appointed under Mr. Bush, left last November.
    It is possible this was just bad judgement, or it could be a group of ‘loyalists’ who wanted to find something to use against the ‘other side’. If our legislators would work together in a bipartisan manner, perhaps gov’t employees wouldn’t be part of the Us vs Them attitude we see in the media and in forums such as this.
    The IRS abuse and the AP investigations seem on the surface to be the kind of big gov’t overreach Conservatives and Liberals alike fear. I look forward to the results of the investigations.
    Respectfully,

    Next up? The IRS and Obamacare. The “media” can be trusted to tell us all about the 17 new taxes that are penalties or is it penalties that are taxes. right? Or do they have another agenda.

    Why? Because Chairman Obama was reelected and the IRS did their job to assist.

    @bhinkle

    Selective reading of the (bowel) movements’ meme there bhinkle? I think that is called spin, and you guys are great at it. To bad that the truth is a casualty of spin.

    Okay, put your money where your mouth is. Find me a single TEA Party site that has in its charter that “hates government,” “thinks taxes are illegal,” and in turn “refuses to pay them.” Find it! I’ll wait.

    When you can identify a corporate officer who will stand accused, convicted and serve prison time for the crimes of the corporation they helped run then you can claim that President Obama is responsible for every action of every office of every department of the government. I’m not talking a corporate officer guilty of his or her crimes but the crimes of the corporation. Until then your standards for culpability in corporate, “Corporations are people my friends”, of the CEO head honcho isn’t responsible because “He didn’t know” are applied to the President also. When your standards are the same for Corporate America match as those you wish to impose on the President (when he’s of the “other party”) then we can talk.

    This one hits it on the nose. The IRS delights in finding the Honey Boo Boos of the Tea party and then hold them up as the representative of the rest of us.

    The government is wasteful and spends far too much time trying to equalize outcome rather then equalize opportunity. I think there are plenty of people that would agree with that assertion.

    Instead of scrutinizing that claim – The press (with a few exceptions) spend their time trying to make anyone that espouses that opinion appear to be fringe.

    We (The United States) spend too much money on: Exporting Death, Taking away liberty, Transferring wealth from one group to another, Trying to make people in other states do what WE want.

    Listen to the Ranting and Gnashing of teeth when the Sequester took away 2.5% of their budgets (Arguably the only spending cuts that have ever been successful.
