    December 19, 2014 Dear Ms. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx: Thank you for contacting my office regarding H.R. 83, the Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act of 2015. As your Representative in Congress, I appreciate your input on this issue. The 2015 Omnibus Appropriations bill contains many important provisions that will protect jobs, stop wasteful spending, rein in government overreach, and bolster our national security efforts. Ideally, appropriations would be passed through regular order each year, rather than combined in an omnibus spending bill at the last minute. The House passed eight appropriations bills this summer which, unfortunately, were never taken up in the...

    I am reading that the film "Grapes of Wrath" will be re made. It’s a Dreamworks/Spielberg plan. I am so heartily sick to death of the Hollywood smarmy and criminally skewed interpretation of American life and American history. I don’t even want to think of the Liberal orgy of ‘I hate America’ this will be. All the while they are cashing in and living like royalty for ritually subverting the historical facts. Capitalism works… the inevitable boom and bust cycles are what hard working people save for and the reason that credit should always be avoided like poison. However,...

    IRS Rationale for Tea Party Scandal Is Debunked by Data By Doug Donovan Applications for tax exemption from advocacy nonprofits had not yet spiked when the Internal Revenue Service began using what it admits was inappropriate scrutiny of conservative groups in 2010. In fact, applications were declining, data show. Top IRS officials have been saying that a “significant increase” in applications from advocacy groups seeking tax-exempt status spurred its Cincinnati office in 2010 to filter those requests by using such politically loaded phrases as “Tea Party,” “patriots,” and “9/12.” Both Steven Miller, the agency’s acting commissioner until he stepped down...

    The Chronicle of Philanthropy ^ | May 15, 2013 | Suzanne Perry
    At least 32 groups that filed applications to become tax-exempt charities could have sued the Internal Revenue Service last year for taking too long to make a decision, according to a Treasury Department audit released Tuesday that faulted the agency for mishandling applications from groups that could be politically oriented. “Potential political cases took significantly longer than average to process due to ineffective management oversight,” said the report, which found that the IRS had inappropriately singled out conservative organizations that had words like “Tea Party,” or “patriots” in their names or focused on issues like government spending or taxes. The...
