    How is that abusing the code.

    If there was something wrong with application the IRS has the right to deny it, but that wasn't done.

    I don't have an answer for you, the word 'abuse' was a poor choice. What I meant was they they probably tried to use the tax when it wasn't justified under the law.

    While that may be true that is what the application process is for. Anybody can try anything but it is up to the IRS to approve or deny the application in a timely manner so the organization can move on to what they need to do next.

    Holding the application with no answer for years is the problem here.

    I have no interest in protecting or answering for the IRS, if anyone targeted an organization because of their political views they should be punished.

    I think they call that an abuse of power, bigger government is not better, the bigger it is the more abuse comes from it. Abuse is nurtured and infesting into a culture of power.

    Tea Party members and supporters are by definition actual or at least wishful tax evaders. What better place to look for those trying to evade taxes than an organization called "Taxed Enough Already"?

    What likely group of people would you look for tax evaders in if not the TEA Party?
