Over the last week we learned the IRS targeted several
Conservative groups around the USA for extra special
scrutiny as they applied for tax exempt status.
Meanwhile liberal groups, applying for the same status, evidently were fast-tracked and sent on their merry way.
Several Democrats expressed outrage over the thought
that the IRS which, constitutionally, is supposed to
be totally non-partisan was targeting conservatives and
digging deeply into their private lives. Among these
prominent Dems were Senators Carl Levin (MI), Jeanne
Shaheen (NH), Chuck Schumer (NY), Tom Udall (NM),
Al Franken (MN) and Max Baucus (MT).
That’s good, right? Representatives of the People are
supposed to look out for our rights. There’s just one little
problem here. These very same senators expressing all of
this outrage seem to have forgotten something important.
Every one of them has been pressuring the IRS, through
formal letters, to look extra hard at these conservative
groups since 2008! Talk about crocodile tears. Of course
they assume we don’t know any of this, and given the
way people pay attention, they’re probably right!
Hopefully this is food for thought for those regarding how
“good” or “bad” a huge Government is for our existence.
Well don't forget this, the IRS becomes the police of your
Health Care plan in 2014. From 2010 through 2013 the IRS
spent an estimated $881million on the implementation of
Obamacare. They plan to hire 15,000 more agents by the
end of this year and have requested another $441 million for
Fiscal Yr. 2014. Your Family Doctors are transcribing
your entire medical history into digital form so it can be
given to the Dept. of Health and Human Services and your
Insurance Companies are about to give the IRS all of
your names so they can check compliance with the new Law.
But hey, this is what all of you Democrats wanted, right?
It’s all good, right? The IRS won’t be conferring with the HHS
and sending notice that you’re too fat or too old for health
care, right? But no, that’s just silly.
We can trust the IRS.
And just one more thing. When this Administration tells
us in a little while that all of this is the doing of a couple of
....don't you believe it!
