    Flat tax rate for people, and a different flat tax rate for businesses- deflate the most expensive, cumbersome federal agency there is.

    Bingo why do we need such a massive agency for something that could be simple? Anyone ever audit the IRS??

    This was similar to one of the articles of impeachment against Nixon. The difference is that Nixon was only trying to get information on his enemies; Obama was also going after their donors and volunteers, and then denying them their legitimate tax-exempt status in an attempt to bankrupt them.

    That defense didn`t work at Nuremberg.

    Quite right! Any group purporting to be eligible for tax-exempt status should be carefully checked over, especially political groups and religions.

    @Draculya: NO NO! ONLY "conservative groups" require checking! Politial left groups get the "rubber stamp of A-OK" upon detection!
    Idiot.
    Some VERY high ranking IRS bureaucrats were behind this, and Obama will pardon all their asses... just watch and see...

    So you spout off about being Anti-Tax as loudly and as often as you can and then are surprised when the agency tasked with collecting taxes targets you for investigations?

    Seems like a major fcking "DUH" moment to me.

    Kind of like if you spouted off loudly and continuously about using Terrorism to alter government policy and then are surprised when the DHS and the FBI start investigating your organization.

    "Since it`s attacked right wing people, it`s ok".. Am I reading this right on some of these comments? It`s amazing how blind some people can allow themselves to be. This `group` will be the same group that will oversee much of Obamacare. Grats on the future political/medical/monetary hell we`re all about to endure!

    Funny to read some of the comments here. The most corrupt of the corrupt is the current administration we have now. Because of some preconceived notion that all conservative people are religious zealots, liars, thieves and people to not be trusted in general, that gives the liberals the go-ahead to actually be some of the things they believe conservatives to be. Sad day for the U.S. when it`s ok that an American citizen has their rights violated because they belong to a different political party. You shouldn`t be allowed to call yourself an American citizen if you think this is ok. Still blows me away that so-called "intelligent" people could be Obama supporters. I could see voting for him the first time, but if you voted for him the second time, you really are dense.
