The IRS is not going anywhere, and quite frankly, tax code reform will never make sense. Too many people's jobs would be affected if the tax code was simplified and too many businesses would lose too much money. I do agree we need a better system, one in which a visit from an IRS agent isn't going to ruin someone's life, or at the very least, make their life very difficult and stressful. But I just don't think the IRS will ever go away, because too many people rely on the system being the way it is.

WYDEN: For me, the basic proposition is simple. Notwithstanding the troubling and unacceptable conduct of the IRS, if political organizations do not want to be scrutinized by the government, they shouldn't seek privileges like tax-free status and anonymity for their donors. To argue otherwise is to advantage tax cheats to the detriment of law-abiding Americans.
Emerge America, which trained women to run for office, was granted 501(c)(4) recognition in 2006, but its status was revoked in 2012. Training people how to run for office is not in itself partisan activity, but the I.R.S. determined that the group trained only Democratic women and was operated to benefit one party.
Well, here's the deal on the IRS scandal, the Benghazi scandal, and the AP scandal:
Obama is not a Muslim. Obama did not take his oath of office on the Koran. Obama's campaign was not funded by Hugo Chavez. The bulk of Obama's donations did not come from George Soros. Obama's birth certificate was not a forgery. Obama did not remove the American flag from his plane. Obama did not tell the Wall Street Journal that he wanted to redistribute the wealth. Fannie Mae Executives were never Obama's advisors. Obama did not file a lawsuit to force banks into giving loans to poor people who couldn't pay them off. Bill Ayers was not Obama's mentor. Obama did not admit to being a Muslim on ABC. Obama did not fail to qualify for a security clearance. Obama did not allow Palestinians to resettle in the United States. Obama did not receive aid for college from Indonesia. Obama never ordered his college records sealed. Obama was not born in Kenya. The AP never identified Obama as having been born in Kenya. Obama did not remove his shoes for Islamic Prayer Day. Obama never used teleprompters to speak to school children. Obama never tried to ban recreational fishing. Obama never used stimulus funds to save his brother-in-law's job. Obama has never refused to sign Eagle Scout certificates. Obama never surrendered his law license. Obama never cancelled a National Day of Prayer. Obama did not change the decor in the Oval Office. Obama never flew his dog on it's own airplane. Obama's trip to India did not cost 200 million dollars a day. Obama did not take off his wedding ring for Ramadan. Obama never used a fake social security card. Obama never had a foreign student ID. Obama has not signed more executive orders than any other president. Obama never signed an executive order giving him special powers. Obama did not have a marine relieved because he recognized an upside down flag pin on Obama's lapel. Obama never suppressed broadcasts from FOX News. Obama's wedding ring contains no Islamic inscriptions. A grand jury has never indicted Obama. Obama was not adopted. Obama never sold guns to the Taliban. Obama has not been previously divorced. Obama has never been on the board of directors of Factcheck.org. Obama is not creating FEMA death camps. Obama is not a Communist. Obama does not read antiamerican books. Sandy Hook was not a hoax created by Obama. Obama does not hate America.
The above, and many more, are all claims made by those who hate Obama, and they have all been debunked....... Which brings me to the point I am about to make.....
There is a very good reason why the Benghazi scandal, the IRS scandal, and the AP scandal are not significantly impacting Obama's favorability numbers. When you cry wolf long enough, people stop giving a damn about anything you have to say, and just see you as liars, and nothing more. Credibility is everything. Once you lose that, you lose everything, and end up with nothing..... A point which has now been proven in real life by those who saw character assassination as a means to an end.
