    so you have three

    three out of more then two dozen come on you can do better then that. Your desperation is showing

    how about the follow up letters? how about the letters that asked those liberal groups for their donor list, or what books they read, or what prayers they conducted. we never claimed no liberal group was investigated the problem that YOU IGNORE is the blatant targeting using conservative buzz words and then asking outrageous questions fishing for information that was illegal to ask for, Why was it that no groups with conservative leanings was aproved in the last 27 months but liberal groups where fast tracked

    We shall see how they play it. Time will tell.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    usa today:

    In the 27 months that the Internal Revenue Service put a hold on all Tea Party applications for non-profit status, it approved applications from similar liberal groups, a USA TODAY review of IRS data shows.

    As applications from conservative groups sat in limbo, groups with obviously liberal names were approved in as little as nine months. With names including words like "Progress" or "Progressive," these groups applied for the same tax status and were engaged in the same kinds of activities as the conservative groups.
    IRS gave liberals a pass; Tea Party groups put on hold

    Whew! Dodged a bullet there, huh? So the IRS isn't guilty of what they've already admitted and apologized for. Wonder what else they've admitted to but are truly innocent of?

    I am not attempting to exonerate the IRS, I am simply saying the Democrats got letters as well. As for the numbers, maybe the Right abused the 501 c(4) tax code the most. Somebody either Congress or the IRS needs to take the ambiguity out of the code so it's fair for everyone.

The tax exemption requires that organizations have "social welfare" as their primary purpose, but IRS officials said the rules are unclear how much political activity they can engage in.

    y'know, whoever dug that little kernel outta usatoday is really not much interested in the truth

    i, on the other hand, am not interested in debate

    save it for the personality whores

    “I’m mad. It is un-American, it is wrong, and we have to make sure that this gets fixed,” Missouri’s senior senator said. “There’s a reason Lady Justice wears a blindfold in America. That is because in America, we don’t apply the law based on who you are, who you know, or what you believe. We apply the law equally.”

    “We should not only fire the head of the IRS, which has occurred, but we’ve got to go down the line and find every single person who had anything to do with this and make sure that they are removed from the IRS and the word goes out that this is unacceptable,” she said. “It is un-American, it is wrong, and it cannot occur again.”

    McCaskill concluded by saying many groups claim to be charities while doing political work and that it is a problem which needs to be fixed “but not in a way that highlights one belief over another.”

    That is funny, I had to Google it. You need to learn how to post links.
