Here's the chance fo everyone to offload on why taxes have ruined their lives...
I hear you Libs saying that it is OK for the IRS to pick and choose who they harass? It is OK because too many of the 501s and 503's were right wing groups? A Gov’t agency which an administration can use to harass particular individuals or groups that it feels are “enemies” is a real problem. You should be very careful when you get a cavalier attitude when it comes to an agent of the Gov’t such as the IRS being used to intimidate or harass an opponent. Be careful what you wish for.
"The Internal Revenue Service’s special scrutiny of small-government groups applying for tax-exempt status went beyond keyword hunts for organizations with “Tea Party” or “patriot” in their names, to a more overtly ideological search for applicants seeking to “make America a better place to live” or “criticize how the country is being run,” according to a part of an inspector general’s report that was given to Congress."

Whoops.

IRS's Tea Party Scrutiny Adds To Conservatives' Case Against Obama
by Frank James
These republican super PAC supported organizations do tend to be little unsavory ! I'm sure that at one time or another the KKK was given a little closer look and we had no whining about that !
The conservative blogosphere is all-atwitter this afternoon over the revelation that the Internal Revenue Service targeted various Tea Party groups in the days leading up to the presidential election of 2012.
Sadly for the critics of the president, things are not always

as they initially appear to be and the effort to paint the improper IRS activity as a White House directed political dirty trick is unlikely to gain the traction opponents would like to see catch fire.
Keep in mind that the kerfuffle does not involve the targeting of groups for audits seeking evidence of a failure to pay taxes. Rather, the problem involved the IRS’s review of applications filed by the various entities seeking tax-exempt status under the law.....Source:Forbes
