Long before the Internal Revenue Service revealed it had improperly targeted conservative 501(c)(4) groups, a group of Democratic senators led by New York Sen. Chuck Schumer urged the IRS to do just that.
The IRS’s admission last Friday that it had singled out tea party and other groups for extra audits and delays has raised concerns that President Barack Obama’s administration quietly attempted to stymy opponents through intimidation. But many prominent Democrats — including Montana Sen. Max Baucus, Americans United for the Separation of Church and State and the New York Times editorial board — had been publicly calling for tighter restrictions on 501(c)(4) groups affiliated with the tea party and conservatives.

My radical friends (childhood friends - thus, the only reason I interact with them) insist that the Tea Party IS doing illegal things and needs to be targeted.
In 2012? Sounds like FrankenSenator was at least 2 years behind. The IRS was already all over that by then.
Tell them to look up the clinical definition of projectionism. And ask them for the concrete proof the Tea Party is doing illegal things. They will have none. Then ask them what they are doing that is illegal. And I suggest you sit down first, because most progressives are doing numerous illegal things.
Yep and helped win the election for Obama.
I was wondering why I had not seen much of Tea Party rallies in a long time. I guess now we know why.
I have no doubt they would put Tea Party members in the ovens if they could. Those rat bastar--
You need more GROWN up FRIENDS!! LOL
Schumer is tied in with the drug cartels. Frankin may be but definitely stupid.
I see no choices coming...It’s in concrete now. I hate them as much as they hate me. Obama can blather on about how repubics won’t come to the table with him. WTF? Will dip tards like Franken ever “come to the table”?...F’em all!
Schumer...you mean Marco’s friend?
schumer,franken, bloomberg, feinstien, boxer, alinsky, ayers...any common thread here?
Yes, they dared to oppose King Barack. Off with their heads!!! (snicker)
Well, Mr. Boehner, there’s the list of f*ckers who need to go to jail. Schumer, Franken, and etc.
So what are you going to do about it?
Yeah, that’s what I expected.
Carl Levin too. These traitors need to be arrested, tried, convicted and shot.
These moonbats pretend that they are moderates in the middle of the political spectrum. We can't let them get away with this BS.
Bennett and Udall are not moderates. Both come from long time liberal Democrat families. The leadership lets them vote with Republicans every now and then when the Dems have excess votes so they can pretend to be moderate. But when the Party needs every vote, as in Obamacare, these guys vote liberal.
I am a Christian, so I am really not supposed to hate these dirt bags. Let me just say, I hold these slime sucking scum bags in total, complete, 100%, pure, unadulterated contempt. Do I get my point across?
