  • Tax Refund Seizure

    Townhall.com ^ | April 15, 2014 | Hank Adler
    As has been widely reported, a single sentence in the 2008 Farm Bill, Public Law 110-246, is said to be responsible for the Internal Revenue Service seizing refunds from the children of taxpayers who the Social Security Administration says were inadvertently overpaid in the 1960s and 1970s. Are they kidding? The story is ugly in so many ways. Of course, no one is claiming credit for the change in the law that the Internal Revenue Service and the Social Security Administration is relying upon to seize taxpayer refunds. But, of course, there is the actual language in the bill for...

    In his new book—The Liberty Amendments: Restoring the American Republic—nationally syndicated radio host Mark Levin, who served as chief of staff in the Reagan Justice Department, argues that the Constitution should be amended to put tax day and election day back to back. “I would move tax day to the day before election day,” Levin said in an interview on CNSNews.com’s Online With Terry Jeffrey. “I think this is very important, because if you’ll notice, election day and tax day are about as far apart as they can get, like seven months apart,” said Levin. “So we’re voting on the...

    The wisdom Frank tried to impart on CNN this morning is that the best way to fight against terrorism is by making government a lot bigger. Video via The Weekly Standard: “In this terrible situation, let’s be very grateful that we had a well-funded, functioning government. It is very fashionable in America, and has been for some time to criticize government, belittle public employees, talk about their pensions, talk about what people think … of [their] health care. Here we saw government in two ways perform very well. … I never was as a member of Congress one of the...

    Former congressman Barney Frank (D-Mass.) went on MSNBC this morning to react to yesterdayÂ’s bombing at the Boston Marathon. In a shameless moment of advocacy, Frank used the tragedy to make a political statement about revenue and the size of government. Considering that this happened on MSNBC, you might expect the host to condone the congressmanÂ’s liberal activism, but anchor Thomas Roberts actually called Frank out for his despicable attempt to politicize this tragedy. Early in the interview, Frank stressed that none of us know much about who and what were behind this event as of yet. So the former...

    Thoughts and prayers this morning for yesterday’s bombing victims and their families. I know there has been talk about the Marathon Bomber being a disgruntled Tea Partier (well okay, it was just Tingles and CNN dufus, Peter Bergen, who came right out and said it, butt you know others were hoping thinking it too.) From what I hear via Little Mo that is very unlikely. Here’s part of the report he filed late last night: “Authorities say they are searching for a darker skinned or black male with a black backpack and black sweatshirt, possibly foreign national from the accent...

    In explaining why President Obama didn't call the Boston bombings a "terrorist attack," former adviser David Axelrod said, "I'm sure what was going through the president's mind is -- we really don't know who did this -- it was tax day": "The word has taken on a different meaning since 9/11," Axelrod said of the phrase "terrorist attack." "You use those words and it means something very specific in people's mind. And I'm sure what was going through the president's mind is -- we really don't know who did this -- it was tax day.

By Noel Sheppard | April 15, 2013 | 18:46 As NewsBusters reported earlier, MSNBC's Chris Matthews seems hell-bent on trying to blame the Boston Marathon bombing on a domestic terrorist, preferrably a conservative one. After saying shortly into his Hardball program, "Normally domestic terrorists, people, tend to be on the far right," Matthews later asked his guests if Tax Day had something to do with the event since it doesn't mean a "whole lot to the Arab world or Islamic world or the, certainly not to al Qaeda"...

    It’s ironic how quickly events can turn. MaoBama and the DNC goon squad were preparing what they thought to be a devastating attack against our presumptive presidential candidate, Mitt Romney, by attacking his wife and attempting to discredit and marginalize her. In order to accomplish this end, they trotted out the usual assortment of worn-out hacks to demean a lady who has more class in her little fingernail than the entire DeMarxist establishment combined. The assault was headed by a long-term DeMarxist lesbian activist, whose own ‘marriage’ and subsequent divorce left their adopted twins with a broken home. This ‘expert’...

    Despite the recent gains made in the debt limit negotiations, there is no amount of debt-shuffling that doesn't leave taxpayers footing the bill for Washington's spending problem. In its annual Cost of Government Day report, Americans for Tax Reform Foundation calculated that Americans worked until August 12 this year to pay for the full costs of government spending and regulation. The 'Cost of Government Day' report determines the day of the year on which the average Americans has made enough income to pay off the local, state and federal regulatory and spending burdens.

Protesters who started gathering at 12:15 p.m. at the statue of Ambrose Burnside warmed up by chanting “Hey, hey, ho, ho, Wall Street greed has got to go,” and “I pay, you pay, why doesn’t Bank of America pay?” Christopher Currie, the Rhode Island coordinator for MoveOn.org, called on corporations “to do the right thing” during “these difficult economic times, when Americans...

    The battle lines have been drawn and it could get ugly. It’s one thing to tax millionaires, it’s another to go after deductions. Another third rail? Two days ago the President raised the specter of tax increases to cut the deficit. Actually he coined a new euphemism for that, “tax code expenditures.” Honestly, I have no idea where that came from. But even half asleep, I caught on the second time he said it. And he called them “cuts”. Damn, this guy is good. But the real money line comes at the end where he takes a whack at deductions....

Like vampires drawn to blood, liberals rely on the taxes paid by others to support their socialist wealth-redistribution schemes and scams.

    Today, Tax Day, I sent this email to my rep: Mr. Hodes, On this Tax Day, April 15th in the Year of Our Lord, 2010, I want to express my enthusiasm for the forthcoming midterm elections where I will enthusiastically vote for your permanent retirement from government "service". You have successfully avoided representing my interests for the past two years, mindlessly parroting the orders of Ms Pelosi, voting to destroy the health system and the economy and undermining the safety of this Blessed Nation. I hope you shuffle off into the dustbin of history with your head hung in shame...

    After candidates complain to organizers, Orly Taitz's speaking engagement is withdrawn. Taitz has been a leading voice in the discredited 'birther' movement. (snip) One candidate threatened to withdraw from the event before Tuesday's decision to uninvite Taitz. John Dennis, who is running for the Republican nomination to oppose House Speaker Nancy Pelosi in San Francisco, said he would not appear on the same stage as Taitz. "The presence of a discredited publicity seeker on the same platform with patriotic Americans distorts the focus of our movement, distracts from our common message and gives ammunition to those who continue to question...

    Two days remain until Tax Day, when the post office will weather a windfall of last-minute tax forms and cities across the nation will witness the ill wind that is the Tea Party Pretenders. And it blows no good. Local Tea Partiers will rally in Hamilton on April 15, doing their best to put the bitter in the Bitterroot. They will raise the flag and tout the Constitution, calling themselves “patriots.” In protesting taxes, they are anything but. Vice President Joe Biden called it right: Paying taxes is patriotic. Yes, shelling out a few more bucks can feel painful, but...
