Btw, Koch Brothers are no different then George Soros.
It's not just the "right wing" in an up roar over this.. senior Democrats and "liberal" Republicans in Congress have issues with it, you know Diane Feinstein, and Susan Collins.
Liberals sprouted hundreds of astro-turf groups as well. Happened in the late '90s and during the Healthcare debate.
My point in this is pretty simple... if you are gonna look into 501 (c)(4)s then set the rules on what is primary political means. It's assumed by all 501 (c)(4)s that anything over 49% is primary political. IRS doesn't say what is or isn't. So IRS can't specifically look at ANY group based on what is spent since it hasn't defined it. On top of that every big group out there has a 501 (c)(4). Be it Moveon.org or Heritage Foundation. But the IRS specifically targeted groups with the titles of "Tea Party", "Patriots" and "9/12"..
The IRS sent letters demanding information outside of the scope of determining if it was a 501 (c)(4).
So don't give me this it's just Republican and Libertarians bitching.. you should be bitching too. I will always be against this kind of abuse by Government, be it a Republican or a Democrat doing it. It's why I don't trust Government.. Yet you are so blinded by your politics you don't even realize if you don't nip it in the bud today.. tomorrow it will be 1000 times worse.
