House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Monday that the IRS should be condemned for targeting conservative groups for special scrutiny in the run-up to last year’s elections, but she also blamed the Supreme Court for opening the door to broader political activity.

Of course, the partisan specific language was not a factor...

Lie Nancy lie.

There is stupidity.

Then, there’s extreme stupidity.

But, at the very bottom, there’s Nancy Pelosi.

Any lower IQ would void the possibility of life.

I don’t understand. If the Court ruled that it’s legal for corporations to spend their money to support speech they agree with, how does that decision give the IRS the right to investigate the funding sources of non-profits that exist to actually accomplish the free speech?

The Court has said that it’s legal, so there’s no crime in doing it. If it’s not criminal, then the IRS questions and investigation are simply harassment.

Unless Pelosi is somehow arguing that any organization that takes money from a for-profit corporation somehow becomes a for-profit organization itself. She may actually be stupid enough to believe this, of course. Certainly, many of her constituents are that stupid.

Banks are responsible for bank robberies because the banks have all that money just lying there.

That’s because the supreme court has to rule on a case before they can find out what’s in it.

Let’s get back to Bengahzi. This is a serious issue for sure but, Bengahzi is the real issue.

They leaked the IRS to distract us and dilute Bengahzi effects

Why yes, of course. I’m certain that MoveOn.org, ACORN, Organizing for America, etc., etc. have ALL received the same level of scrutiny./s

Pelosi is what a decomposing corps looks like with skin stretched over it ... just because there’s a spark and a poof inside her head does not mean there is life there, it could just as well mean the activity of decomposition is continuing to occur.

While Pelosi makes stupid statements, she's more evil than dumb. Sheila Jackson Lee and Hank Johnson are dumber than a bag of hammers, they make Pelosi look like Einstein.

Hell she was cheering them on the whole way if she didn’t give the orders herself. If I weren’t Christian I’d wish for her to get sick and be denied coverage for medical treatment and end up living on the streets in her old age but I won’t. She will receive her justice from God for her travesties against the American people later as will Obama.

OK, now for once Pelosi (quite by accident) pointed her finger in the general direction of part of the problem we have here: and that is, certain organizations are ruled as “tax exempt.” But why? Whether an organization should qualify is a judgment call, whether by the legislature (in writing the law), or by the executive branch (IRS) in attempting to carry out the law, or by the courts (in doing whatever they are supposed to do, which sometimes has to do with the Constitution).

So, fundamentally, the problem is that we have the distinction between taxable and tax-deductible or exempt. This leaves free play for corruption (or at least favoritism) in all three branches. It were better if all income of individuals were taxed, and no organizations were taxed, whether non-profit, for-profit, political, or otherwise.
