    The Right "ABUSED" the tax code, the claim here is the "IRS ABUSED" the Right. Geeeeeee how you can twist it all around. Nice try but it don't work. Yeah the IRS took full advantage of the ambiguity in the code for their own political means to crush the Right from having a voice. And to make it more political this was in run up to the election, no different than the cover up of the fully armed terrorist attack, and the capture of phone records. And the Obama administration is standing in the way of a special committee with all the powers to get to the truth. Obama and clan don't want the truth to come out because it leads directly to Obama's door.

    Because of Repubs playing dodge-ball with our laws, we must end all tax-exempt status. Too bad what they're doing to the Country.

    This is a GREAT idea. Didn't the President attempt to run without 'help' from these type organizations?...how'd that work out? Point being this isn't a one sided issue.

    It may have been fortuitous that Rahm Emanuel moved on before the ship hit the sand. Perhaps he was smart enough to realize that you can't play Chicago politics on a national level.

    there is some ambiguity as to what he was requesting? Really?

    Obama was smart enough not to get "Willie Hortoned".
    Repubs get most upset when Dems play by their rules.
    How did Holder's smack-down of Issa over Bush/Cheney's fast and furious work out?
    With all the good work Catholic Charities does, for instance,
    not 1% of their money should go to politics
    or they should lose tax-exempt status.

    Actually they're doing the Country a hell of a favor, exposing how corrupt the Obama administration is AND exposing how dishonest their supporters are.

    Well, the Cons on this site are exposing their supporters dishonesty. We do what we can.

    Rahm has backed every union down since coming back to town. You may remember the teacher's strike last fall. Chicago/Illinois(Harding) corruption began in 1920 with Repubs. They invented pay-for-play.
