@Chillbilly – Really? Really? You compare screening little old ladies at the airport with Excessive scrutiny of a political party.
As if somehow a Teaparty group is more likely to break the law or cheat on their taxes then a progressive group?
Richard Nixon did it first and best and he was wrong. Using the IRS for political scores is still wrong. Congress needs to bring this out of control agency in line.I’ve worked with the IRS in the business arm and I’ve found that there are plenty of good and decent workers. But for every one like that, you will find 10 that are stupid and lazy. They make bold assertions and then expect you to prove them wrong. And after you’ve spent million’s of your company’s money doing that they shrug and say oh, I guess I missed that one.
We need a tax system that is clean, fair, and transparent and we have none of that right now.
We need to move to a national sales tax, VAT or some otther point of sale tax and get the IRS out of most people’s lives.
