Skip to comments.SHOCK: IRS Admits to Targeting Conservative Groups During 2012 Election, Apologizes
Posted on 05/10/2013 10:56:34 AM PDT by NoLibZone
House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Subcommittee Chairman Jim Jordan (R-Ohio.) issued the following statement:
The fact that Americans were targeted by the IRS because of their political beliefs is unconscionable. The Committee will aggressively follow up on the IG report and hold responsible officials accountable for this political retaliation.
How many times has this been posted today?
isn’t that like sucker-punching someone, saying oops! my bad, then the guy cant’ hit back because you apologized?
This is the perfect opportunity to rid ourselves of the IRS and go to the Fair Tax. The IRS is now without a doubt the enforcer for the DNC and it’ll only get worse once Obamacare goes into full effect. The IRS has been co-opted and corrupted by the DNC machine.
Again, evidence that Obama means to convert the USA into a fascist state.The IRS will be the enforcement of redistribution of wealth for the Obama fascist government.
Congress needs to surpress Obama and his fascists Czars.Or soon we will have to fight as a people against our own government.
Issa needs to act. This is criminal conduct on the part of the IRS. It is also a violation of civil rights, a federal offence.
In other news “Today the sun rose”. In other shocking news “today it was found that the sky is blue.” Please, how long has this been going on? The only thing newsworthy about it is they admit it for once, but it doesn’t mean they will stop.
I am sure the idiots were pleaed they could do their part to help 0dumbo
We will probably see them sitting next to moochelle as they get their medal.
Who wants to be the Republican nominee for 2016?
Whoever it is, they will investigate this and if warranted, go after this full-throttle. They will push to have top people at the IRS named and publicly fired, and make sure this is headline news.
Its a winning issue for whoever wants to grab it.
What did Obama know and when did he order it?
Tax Audits Are No Laughing Matter
A president shouldn’t even joke about abusing IRS power.
Ha-haaa ! Just joking/sarc off
It will happen to the IRS regardless as they are the designated hatchet men for Obamacare. When power changes in Congress and it inevitably does, someone is going to answer for that implementation. I guarantee it won't be Urkel.
Au contraire, it was never co-opted or corrupted; it was corrupt from its inception. The IRS was the brainchild of international banking.
It’s only purpose ever was to allow for the creation of government debt.
Without the tax collection by force mechanism, Treasury bonds could not be sold in enormous volumes, since there would be very little guarantee of the government’s ability to pay the bonds.
The leader of the charge for the Federal Reserve - and moving money creationg from the Treasury to the Fed was Paul Warburg - I would suggest reading up on Paul Warburg. One cannot possibly understand the IRS and the Fed without reading up on the characters of that time.
The American people have been, since then, trapped into having their incomes reported and taxed in order to pay for runaway government spending, which would be impossible on the scale that it is happening without the IRS and the Fed combination.
Hey, it’s their 100th anniversary - WHY is the media - even Fox - not covering this EVERY DAY all year ? It’s a big story. It’s a milestone.
Government is never having to say you’re sorry.
Unknown , as the search said- none.
It can’t be posted enough.
Gee, Government using their own agencies to specifically crack down on law abiding political organisations.....
And they wonder why people are stockpiling guns + ammo + food...

A senior official from the Internal Revenue Service conceded Friday afternoon that she is not good at math during a conference call on the IRS targeting of conservative groups during the 2012 election:
I give up, how many? First time I have seen it.
Shock?????.........Not a 100,000 Freepers
This alone is reason enough to go to a fair tax or sales tax. This is improper, to say the very least.
