IRS Won’t Say If It Will Comply With Congressional Demand for All Communications and Names....
CNSNews ^

Posted on 05/14/2013 9:27:05 AM PDT by chessplayer

(CNSNews.com) - The Internal Revenue Service has given no indication to the House Ways and Means Committee about whether it will respond to the committee’s demand, delivered in writing last Friday, that the agency hand over copies of all internal communications containing the words “tea party,” “patriot,” or “conservative” and the names and titles of all IRS officials involved in discriminating against tea party and conservative groups when they submitted applications for tax-exempt status.

Better for us if they don’t, in the long run, because the longer they drag this out the worse it is going to get.

Fine, maybe ALL taxpayers shouldn’t comply with THEIR demands.

These people should be hanging from lamp posts.

At this point, I’m going to make a prediction:

Nothing’s going to come out of any of this. Nothing substantive, anyway.

It’s sorta like election night last year. With all of the predictions that Romney would win, when the first returns came in at 7 PM EST, we ALL knew it was going to be Obama Part II. The results didn’t match the grandiosity of the predictions.

Despite the egregious nature of the crimes committed by this administration, many laid bare here this week, I believe nothing will happen to the Teflon President. Some low-level IRS and DOJ people will lose their jobs, but Obama & Company will continue on, unscathed.

Nothing at all came of the Clinton’s abuse of the IRS.
Nothing at all will come of this.

Lampposts may be the only solution.

No, I meant to post more and it addressed lampposts.

Quite frankly, the number of Americans with any sort of bloodlust for the socialists in DC is relatively low compared to the American population at large. Honey Boo Boo, Duck Dynasty, and American Idol are still on TV. Why bother with real life, right?

God, save us.

The US tax system is based on voluntary compliance. Should every taxpayer refused to pay, the IRS doesn’t have the personpower to prosecute everyone (or so they say).

I agree. I expect that nothing will come of this and I also expect John Boehner to start apologizing for the rudeness of Republicans any time now.

And if nothing is done about this then that makes the case for a revolution as the means of redress.

If this was Republicans trying to take down Obama, I’d agree with you, nothing would come of it.

But this time it’s different. This is internecine intra-Democrat Party War.

The calls are coming from INSIDE THE HOUSE.

From the above link - Stephen Miller - acting head of IRS said TEA PARTY groups were NOT being targeted. That’s NOT his story today... Looks like the IRS has already been caught in one lie...

************************************************************

“I wrote to the IRS three times last year after hearing concerns that conservative groups were being targeted,” Sen. Orrin G. Hatch (Utah), the ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, said in a statement Monday. “In response to the first letter I sent with some of my colleagues, Steven Miller, the current Acting IRS Commissioner, responded that these groups weren’t being targeted.”

Give ‘em a couple of days.

THEN defund the agency.
Completely.
Go to a flat tax on Personal income only—leave collection to the GAO.

If congress does not punish agencies that do not comply with their constitutional oversight obligations then we no longer live in a democratic republic as we will be ruled by unelected bureaucrats. The federal government will grow ever larger until it crushes the citizenry.

It would only take about 25% to refuse to pay to get the snowball going. Once it starts it’s over. They would sh!t their pants.

It's show time. The IRS doesn't get to decide when they will comply with congressional demands.

Withhold ALL funding to the IRS until they comply and then still withhold all Obamacare funding to the IRS.

All we need to do is to apologize, just like the IRS does when it breaks the law.

The IRS sets the example, and we simply follow their example to the letter.

Those on the inside are now making their move.

The press is powerless.

Congress is powerless.

Reid will protect Obama.
Pelosi supports this as she is a member of the socialist caucus in the house.

He won’t be impeached, I’ll give you that. But at a minimum this will keep the WH off balance and slow his agenda down. So you are wrong to say they will continue on unscathed.

I wouldn’t mind the IRS being de-funded, if Washington runs out of money then it runs out of the means to suppress our rights or resist our efforts to reclaim(decentralize) power and responsibility from Washington.
