Distrust Growing: 70% Believe IRS Decision to Target Conservatives Was Made in DC
Rasmussen Reports ^ | June 18, 2013

Posted on 06/18/2013 11:31:45 AM PDT by princeofdarkness

While the controversy over the National Security Agency surveillance program has dominated the news recently, concern about the Internal Revenue Service’s targeting of Tea Party groups and other conservative organizations remains high and is inching up. Despite the large number of controversies engulfing official Washington, the number of people following the IRS scandal has actually increased in recent weeks.

The media is still working on their massive cover project for HomObama. Don’t worry, it is coming.

I’d like to know why there has been no legislation submitted by the House or Senate abolishing the IRS and restructuring the tax code.

Has anyone else heard of anything?

35% are assuming that was the case and are upset by it
35% are assuming that’s the case and are encouraged by it

The rest are too busy not paying attention to politics to care.

” I’d like to know why there has been no legislation submitted by the House or Senate abolishing the IRS and restructuring the tax code.”

Boehner is too busy meeting today with the Hispanic Congressional Caucus, in order to destroy our sovereignty.

C’mon, this is the GOP we are talking about. Sure you might see a Gowdy, King(Steve, not Peter the statist), or Gohmert proposing but Boehner and Co. will squash it dead like a cornered cockroach.

Why doubt that King Obama approved the IRS from the beginning. He is a born liar, criminal, and a first class communists.

And as soon as it is PROVEN, 70% of the ignorant filth known as the American voter will vote to repeal the ?? Amendment, allowing the Kenyan 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, and 7th terms in office.

And there will never be. The Republicans are so totally incompetent and seem to never listen to the American people.

Since 30% of Americans want full-blown Communism NOW, we have 100% of the sane Americans who think the IRS went overboard.

It's not incompetence -- Incompetence would have had a better success-rate, or more effort, this is complicity.

I’ve been pondering which of the most recent scandals outrages me the most, and I have decided that it is the IRS.

1) I’ve been mad about Benghazi for a long time, but the facts around it are still murky. I’m still angry, but there is no guarantee that it would have turned out any different if other decisions had been made.

2) The NSA clearly needs to track SOME phone and computer connections. Again, not enough is known yet about the extent of their surveillance. It makes me uneasy, but not irate. I figured they were watching and listening anyway.

3) The IRS is a different matter. This clearly was an overt and deliberate infringement upon our privacy and upon our religious freedoms, and so many other abuses that I cannot list them all. This was NOT accidental. This was NOT instigated by terrorists from another country. This was a deliberate attack upon our own citizens by our government and that is why it upsets me the most.

Exactly.

It will be more than "support." Watch and see.

I was thinking the same thing.

This is sort of like Obama’s job disapproval numbers. A lot of people who disapprove, want Obama to be more liberal.

So, I don’t know if this is anything to hopeful about.

A lot of them say, Tea Party — good, they should be investigated by the IRS.

IRS may be the one that brings him down. Using the IRS like the gestapo police against political enemies is Hitler like and maybe the answer to what was described as his secret army

The IRS scandal was an attack on free elections. It was Obama's attempt at a Hugo Chavez style turnout for Obama by preventing the opposition from organizing in the first place.

“The feds are actively attacking. Personal liberty.”

Right, that said, I just received my 28 pages of The American Community Survey, with an estimated time to complete of 40 minutes...

Wrong!

Though it did take my shredder a good 2 minutes to chew through their high quality paper! They will never get information from me voluntarily, they’ll just have to get it from the IRS and the NSA, since we now know they’ve got it all.

Or, I’ll take the Lois Lerner route and plead the 5th.

“Maybe there is some hope for America. Keyword being SOME.”

The keyword is visit your local IRS and contemplate whether these fat blobs sitting at their desks can fight you. Do you really think a 400 pound doughnut muncher is capable of beating you?

Buckwheat’s army is thousands of fat cowards and doughnut munchers who wouldn’t last five minutes on a battlefield. If you’re afraid of that, go find a hole and crawl in.
