    Cummings looked unhinged. I'd investigate his role in the cover up.

    I have no problem with that whatsoever.

    I want to know who politicians are beholden too.

    And the SC says disclosure is perfectly Constitutional. Right in the CU decision.

    As has been stated more than once in this thread, once by myself, her personal liability and a "scandal" from on high are not necessarily the same thing.

    And the only thing at "risk" was the ability of donors to influence elections anonymously.

    Therefore, I have no problem with it other than that held by the Treasury investigation. That using words alone to flag applications for further scrutiny was inappropriate, not morally but in its net effect.

    It caused groups not in possible violation of the rules to be flagged and others that may have been to slide by unchallenged. I agree that the 501(c)(4) classification is in need of overhaul, with a return to its STATUTORY form of NO political intervention activity.

    More likely giving her immunity would give her permission to take blame for everything and absolve the president.

    There are two types of Muslims, terrorists, and their enablers. They need to fix that if they want to be part of civilized society.

    That's funny! It also really sums it up. It would make a great concluding statement to the last document that is put into the "IRS Scandal" banker's box before they ship them, next week, to the National Archives.

    Why is belief the criteria? Shouldn't evidence be?

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    I find it hard to believe that most of those conservative groups qualifiy as a "social welfare" group. Conservative and social welfare in the same sentence is an oxymoron.

    Which is why this legit IRS investigation into these scofflaw con groups began in the first place.
    Let's get back to focusing what the USSC will eventually rule on, 501(c)(4) .

    Only if you are a true believer leftist, who makes excuses for the corrupt and illegal practices of the democrat party, I suppose.
